For the first time, we took the Key West Express ferry down to Key West for the weekend. Why did we wait so long? This was so much better than driving! The weekend was a blast and Saturday night was by far the prettiest sunset from Mallory Square I’ve ever seen. The sky changed colors so many times, I couldn’t take photos fast enough.
- Last week on Andy Rosse Rd in Captiva, I saw some fine art photography by Alan Maltz hanging on the walls at Royal Shell that took my breathe away. He also has a gallery in Key West so Saturday were lucky enough to have an inspirational artist’s tour of the Alan Maltz Gallery on Duval street lead by Alan Maltz. My head is still spinning after soaking up the color and richness of his powerful photographs. He has been designated “The Official Wildlife Photographer of Florida” by the Wildlife Foundation of Florida……and my new idol. I’ve learned so much in the past year and it’s given me much pleasure to try to capture a moment on our beaches in a photograph but I now have greater respect for professional photographers like Alan Maltz. He has spent a lifetime perfecting his art. I’m sticking with my little point-n-shoot Panasonic DMC-ZS3 but I’m now armed with a little more knowledge from Florida’s finest.
- It was Lobsterfest weekend so we chowed on lobster rolls, lobster tails and Sunday morning I had a lobster eggs benedict to die for. There are no seashells washing up on the beaches of Key West but it is called “The Conch Republic” so I thought I might find some seashell photo ops….mmmm not much, but you might enjoy these too.
