Autumn in Florida and a Baptism

with 3 comments

My photo friend Scott Thomas in upstate New York asked me to enter his photo challenge and submit a photo that exudes “November”.  Well, that assignment is over, but yesterday on the drive home from church I saw this scene in an estate in Apopka Florida that look to me as close to what November could look like – with the fall colors – as much as Florida can drum up – since things are a bit tropical-looking down here.  The temperatures have gone down into th 40s over the last couple of weeks – and it is SO REFRESHING!  I’m sending this to Scott anyway and hope you all like it as well.

Autumn in Central Florida

The ride yesterday was because of these two little guys.  They were baptized in Christ yesterday.  Matthew and Anderson (with their Mommies) – we love you!

Florida Gazebo

with one comment

This gazebo is located at the Lakeside Inn in Mt. Dora, FL.  Something about the weeping Spanish Moss, the huge trees and the loneliness makes this a bit of a bit dramatic.  Post process work to enhance the color.
