Oodles and oodles of alligators seemed to be coming at us from all angles at the Alligator Farm in St. Augustine. Thankfully, we were safe up on a boardwalk. It is so much more than an “alligator farm.” It is a little bit of nature in the middle of St. Augustine with a rookery and a small zoo. Nice boardwalks for getting around on, and lots of shade. Go there sometime. It’s a fun place to shoot.
Week 38: In A Row
St. George Street in historic St. Augustine has palm trees all in a row, as I discovered during a stroll from our hotel to the Columbia Restaurant on Hypolita Street. When I got to the intersection, I turned around and shot the scene from whence I came. We passed by Kilwin’s fudge shop along the way, so I skipped dessert at the Columbia to indulge myself enroute back to the Casa Monica Hotel. St. Augustine is a nice getaway, and under four hours from our house.
The Great Egret is the ultimate authority on the S Curve, the creative angle so appealing to the eye. This guy’s graceful S pops out from the angular fronds of its roost. Shooting the egret is a challenge, as the sun can glare off the white plumage. I was grateful for a partly cloudy day when I shot this bird in St. Augustine.
