PALM BEACH FLORIDA – We’ve stopped for a visit with some friends on Palm Beach on the way home. A weekend house party with a group of old friends. Terrific time. This is an images taken across the Intercoastal Waterway toward West Palm Beach.

PONTE VEDRE FLORIDA – Here we are on Florida’s Atlantic coast near Georgia – Ponte Vedre is actually an unincorporated stretch of beach adjacent to Jacksonville Florida. At dinner a local booster told me that Jacksonville was founded by Henry Flagler when he built the Florid West Coast Railway, but things didn’t work out for Jacksonville because he extended to road further South to what became Palm Beach and Miami, which are more reliably warm in the winter. It’s fairly arid visually here so the best that I could do with my Leica Monochrom and Luxocron lens was a shadow selfie. That and a bunch of palm trees that I’m not posting. Oh, and some pictures of the surf. I have trouble with tropical landscapes.

Day 1,551 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

I’m actually posting this on January 19 – remember I post about a week after the images are taken to give me a chance to edit. I went to Paris in August to visit my brother in law, Bob Mallon, because he had been diagnosed with cancer. He died last night. Here he is from my post for day 1,405 (August 20, 2013). We had wonderful meals at Paris New York (pictured) and L’Arpège. Rest in peace, Bob.

JUPITER ISLAND FLORIDA – We flew down to West Palm Beach yesterday and drove to the next big island North, Jupiter Island, which is not much more than a sandbar – typically 100 yards wide but about 20 miles long. Maximum elevation is 10 feet. It’s listed by Wikipedia as the second most wealthy populated area in the United States. From the air it looks like an elongated cluster of large houses; from the ground we refer to it as the “Land of Enchanted Hedges”. There are some really, really tall ones. All nicely maintained. The local hedge guy with the largest cherry picker must make a fortune.

We’re here for a wedding – a daughter of a friend of very long standing. For some reason I’m not achieving much here from a photographic point of view. My eye doesn’t seem to connect well with the tropics. Perhaps it’s my Utah upbringing; my resonance is with the desert. For some reason Manhattan works but Florida doesn’t. So I’ll post what I have but I don’t expect you to stand up and cheer about it. The wedding was today but I didn’t get anything good enough to post. The grim-looking overcast does’t help.

GASPARILLA ISLAND FLORIDA – Some days are better than others. This is one of the better days. I walked around what is now pretty familiar territory getting closer to some of the local landscape. Seaside is always a challenge, because in a very fundamental way it all looks the same. I was productive enough that I thought that today warrants a mini gallery. Maybe it’s just an editing failure on my part. All images with my Leica Monochrom with 18mm Super Elmar lens. The first image is three frames stitched.
