Fish Carving



A carved fish decorating someone's private dock entrance on the Indian River Lagoon in Micco, Florida.

A sad looking, abandoned sailboat in the Indian River Logoon in Grant, Florida. This boat was in the lagoon for years, but has been removed since I took this photo. Hmm. Maybe I should have photographed it sooner.

I was just out one day roaming around and these were two of my shots.

The fish carving is a bit of serindipity on the gate. Nice textures.
The abandoned boat creates an artsy focus. Nice shots.

Each shot speaks of your life there in Florida, a life that appeals to so many people I know. I'm a little hesitant to seriously consider moving to Florida though my husband thinks it would be a good idea. The heat and the humidity scare me off - and yet, here I am in the south central US where the heat and the humidity aren ever present from July through September. Go figure.

Your dad would have been right, with his declaration that the houses I show on my blog today are in the "hah-rent-district".

Thank you photowannabe.

annie: We live very near the Atlantic coast, and I can tell you as someone who grew up in your climate in Monroe, Louisiana, that being near the coast is less hot, and less humid than it EVER was in Louisiana. At least the wind blows a good bit of the time here, whereas in Monroe, most of the time we just prayed for a slight breeze.

Some of the hottest days of my life were spent in Hot Springs, Arkansas. I haven't felt anything close to that down here. Now inside the state, like Ocala, or Orlando, they can be still, muggy, hot like where you are, but near any of the coasts is much more tolerable.

John, My brother-in-law (Bear's photo) would love the carved fish. He likes to go fishing alot. He bought one of those singing fish that you hang on the wall. I think it plays something like "take me to the river"... not sure. Did you every see them or know what I'm talking about?

Nice shots John. I like both but my favorite is the abandoned boat. Like that atmosphere.
