Beach Regulations
(Bradenton Florida)

8/13/05

This is one of my favorite pictures. My guide Anissa brought me to this beach in order to seduce my senses, and arouse my curiosity. I found the scenery to be absolutely breathtaking.

The Human Sandcastle
(Melbourne Beach, Florida)

6/9/05

Once in a while I run into a person who lives in this part of Florida and they tell me that they've never been to the beach. Why? The beach is the number one reason to live in this area, it's certainly not the high cost of living and the high house prices.

The beach is relaxing, it's beautiful, and it's free.

 

Please Visit Bailey's Popcorn Cafe and Cafe Press.

Got Shades?
(Clearwater Florida)
5/8/05

This was my second trip to Largo and Clearwater. My beautiful guide (seen here) named Amanda K, was gracious enough to endure the heat the people and the bright Sun.

We took many great photo's that day. Please email me if you would like to hire Amanda as a model, she's got the look.

It's Storm Season
(Melbourne Beach, Florida)
8/14/05

Lately we have seen too many hurricanes. This summer Katrina passed by southern Florida giving us lots of wind and waves, before strengthening into the monster storm that devastated the golf coast.

Help victims of Katrina by donating to the red cross.

Beach House for Rent
(Bradenton, Florida)
8/13/05

On my first trip to Bradenton, my lovely tour guide Anissa L, took me to this gorgeous beach. We kind of toured the town for the first time together, and we found that this beach is beautiful during the day and at night.

There is a lot of beach front property for rent, and all hovering around the $1900 a month price tag, you can no longer be a bum to be a beach bum.

Lovebirds
(Cocoa Beach, Florida)

When you visit Cocoa Beach you can expect great surf, a boardwalk, and World Famous Ron Jon Surf Shop. On this day I was fortunate to catch a glimpse of this beautiful duo.

Mine?
(Bradenton Florida)
8/13/05

Growing up in Toronto Ontario Canada, you learn to tolerate these pesky flying creatures. In the Pixar/Disney movie Finding Nemo, seagulls are portrayed as mindless scavengers who can only say one word, Mine!

On the beaches in Bradenton these gulls are kind of like the ones in the movie, they'll follow you around if you have food, and won't seem to give up if you chase them away.

The Rockaway is only a Walk Away
(Clearwater Florida)
4/16/05

Clearwater Beach is part of that coastline that is absolutely remarkable. Not far from Largo, Tampa Bay. St. Petersburg, Indian Rocks Beach, considered some of the best beaches in the country.

Surf Day
(Indialantic Florida)
8/28/05

A friend of mine named Barry was bit by a shark in the hand a few years ago. He just said to me, "Dude, we're in their turf while we're out there, we have to respect that. I just say Tecko, get healed then get back out there.

One bi-product of an active storm season are the great waves. Another bi-product of the tropical activity is beach erosion. We have a ying and yang of sorts and I would have to side with the beach saving side. If there's no beach you can't enjoy it, Miss Karpie wouldn't have her sea turtles, and all of the condo's would fall into the Atlantic Ocean.

The Peaceful Gulf
(Clearwater, Florida)
5/8/05

 

The water glistens.

I love the silhouette of people on the beach in contrast to the beautiful waters of the Gulf of Mexico.

If you spend enough time watching the water you'll be sure to see a dolphin or two swimming by.

Time to go home
(Satellite Beach Florida)
5/28/05

 

One of the hardest things to do when you live in a harbor city is to go home at the end of the day. Some days you never want to end. Time spent with your kids teaching them about life, the ocean, setting a good example and securing a brighter future for them.

Keep our beaches safe and clean, and we'll be back another day.

This photo was taken using an old 35 mm camera, don't ask the kind. The picture was scanned and digitized prior to my digital camera days.

Please come back and visit soon.

Melinda, it's time to go home.


A Girl at Peace

These three images were taken with Josephine at Vero Beach Florida, just at Hurricane Rita was passing by the Florida Keys. Rita strengthened to a category 5 storm landed over Port Arthur Texas early Saturday Morning.

Shells with character

These sea shells were not the best looking shells on the beach, but that all depends on who's looking at them. These shells have character and could each tell a story.

Rita's Rage, from afar.
(Vero Beach, Florida)
9/20/05

Winds, tropical force winds were felt from South Florida to Brevard and Volusia County. Vero Beach located in Indian River County, has suffered greatly due to beach erosion. I have several pictures of this beach erosion in progress. I chose not to place them on this web site because it's absolutely depressing to see.

Save our Florida Beaches.

I was first introduced to this beach during the summer of 2005 by Jewels A, and if you read this Jewels- I miss you and you don't have a big butt.
