Trawling through the thousands of images that I had taken throughout the trip, Im often looking for the most striking images that are worthy of a place in my portfolio, but often I find this to be too brutal as many of the images are just nice too look at and marvel at the subjects within.
This image of a banana spider for example, I find the out of focus branch in the background a real distraction making the image “ok” rather than “amazing”. Still I like it as its a memory from my trip and if theres even one other person who takes interest from it then Im happy.
Frequently I’ll come across images that I had totally forgotten I had photographed. This image of an alligator with marbled water rippling around it Is one of my favourite images and for me I wish I had spent more time searching for images like this.
Ultimately the thing about traveling is that you never know when you will return and when you do it’s rarely for a lengthy amount of time.
Florida is one of those places where there is literally more things than you can shake a stick at to photograph. Even though I had shots of certain subjects I still find myself photographing them and trying to improve on the previous ones. But I wish I could have restrained myself more in order to spend the time looking for more creative shots.
Dead fish - This dead fish is one of the thousands that lay dead on the beaches of the florida coastline as a resulting effect of the red tide. In short - a toxin created by microscopic alga that affect the central nervous system of fish.
I found all sorts of beautiful fish from cowfish to puffer fish, the beaches were just covered.
