a journey for photo knowledge

Key West

Street Performers

The best thing to see in Key West is the sunset. Before sunset each day, crowds gather at Mallory Square. Time is passed by, among other things, watching street performers. This aparatus was used by an escape artist in his chained performance. But his daughter doing the introduction turned out to be the better shot.

Key West

On a trip to Key West in 2006 with my sister, I snapped hundreds of photos. This is one of my favorite shots from the entire trip. At times the smooth, glassy water was competing with the sun for attention.

One week until my digital photography class starts.
