Ginger and I have visited Key West more than once and have enjoyed the drive seeing sights along the way. In Key West, we look back and recall watching the sunset from Mallory Square, sipping beer on Duvall street, chasing roosters (their national bird - ha), and just photographing people, buildings and night-time festivities. I would like to definitely plan to revisit Key West (and the Keys) in the fall (hopefully plan to stay in a great B&B the Old Town Manor (or similar) we stayed in previously.
(April 2018) Deciding to capture Key West, my photo partner Eddie and I decided we could capture the night life and pulse of Key West with an overnight trip (via Tamiami Trail through the Everglades). It began with a non-stop journey to the most southern point in the continental US in 8 hours. Then, grabbing SD cards, extra batteries, cameras and tripods we were off to digitally capture the history and pulse of the town. At 11:00 pm, tired and ... a bit exhausted, we packed up and travelled 2 hours north on US 1 to the Key Largo Bayside Inn. Next day we returned home - with approximately 600 photos between us. Below are some of my captures.
