Come down and join me at the Ybor City Saturday Market any Saturday between October and the New Year, from 9am to 3pm. I've set up shop to offer matted and framed prints of my nature and landscape photography for the very first time.
- They're just the right size for your wall! At 16x24 or 18x24, they're not too big or too small.
- They'll last a lifetime! I only use the highest quality inks, archival paper, and acid and lignin free mats.
- Discounts are given if you buy two or more, and I'm throwing in elegant black frames at cost.
If you love Florida landscapes and wildlife, you'll want to have one of these pictures on your wall. And keep in mind, Christmas is around the corner!
A selection of my images are now for sale at the Vintage Post Marketplace in Seminole Heights. It's a local small business selling vintage, repurposed, and up-cycled home décor, as well as art like mine.
My wife and I recently completed a thru-hike of the Florida Trail, beginning on January 6th 2015, and ending on April 16th. During the hike, we took thousands of photographs and made extensive notes for our upcoming book titled The Florida Trail: Discovering America's Forgotten Footpath. Released in time for the trail’s 35th anniversary as a National Scenic Trail in 2018, it will be filled with more than 230 spectacular full-page color photographs as well as dozens of previously unpublished historic photos, documents, and images from the archives of the Florida Trail Association. Essays will cover topics ranging from the many ecosystems and habitats along the trail that exist nowhere else Earth, the unique challenges facing its hikers the history of the trail, the volunteers who first created and still maintain the trail, and the challenges confronting the trail today such as logging, pollution, urban sprawl, and incomplete sections.
In the months to come, we will interviewing Florida Trail Association volunteers and thru-hikers about their experiences on the trail, as well as scientists working for the many public lands over which the trail crosses. Regular updates about our progress will be posted on our blog, facebook.com/hikefla and you can follow us on Twitter: twitter.com/hikefla.
So what is the Florida Trail? Conceived by Jim Kern in 1964 and started by a small group of volunteers in 1966, the FT is one of America’s eleven National Scenic Trails, which include the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails. Each year around a dozen hikers earn the distinction of “thru-hiker” by walking its entire length in one continuous journey, unlike the Appalachian or Pacific Crest Trails where thousands attempt the journey every spring. Thru-hikers are drawn to the trail for communion with nature, to see Florida’s vanishing natural beauty and wildlife, or to challenge themselves. Part history and ecology lesson, part inspirational photo album, and part travel guide, The Florida Trail: Discovering a Forgotten Footpath will tempt readers to say, “let’s go there right now.”
