When I was in high school, I was the friend always posting pictures of the sunset & nature photos instead of selfies... and I still am to this day. lol. Florida has some of the best sunsets and has so much more to offer than the beach or Disney World. In my photos, I try to capture as much of “Old Florida” as I can. The Florida before Disney World & golf resorts. I mean the prairies, rivers, cracker cows, orange groves, palmettos, manatees, & cypress trees. All of which are fading fast due to our ever-so-quickly growing population. People are moving to Florida faster than ever before & many of our beautiful landscapes are being filled with suburbs & toll roads. The Everglades has been dried up (cue John Anderson's Seminole Wind"), the beaches are packed with retirement communities and tourists, & the orange groves are now housing developments & amusement parks. Even though this is true… there is so much beauty in the everyday life in rural Florida. Follow along on my Instagram & Facebook to see more of what us ~true~ Floridians miss.
