Threading My Way through Pinecraft Park 1

December 29, 2016

Pinecraft Park is about three miles from downtown Sarasota. Maybe half of its 22 acres are in things like a parking lot, shuffle boards, and a basketball court. That doesn’t leave much for nature, but I’m always surprised to see how much nature is there. I must have seen the sun shoot through palmetto leaves like this a hundred times or more, yet every year I can’t resist just one more photograph of them. And then one more and one more and one more. Here’s the first one of the year.

    I think those leaves are magical to us northerners. Just keep taking pictures.

    • You may be right, Leslie. For a photography class I took down here years ago, I shared a photograph of grooves in the sand left by leaves brushing back and forth over the same spot. The instructor didn’t think much of my photograph, chiefly because “we’ve all seen that.” Uh . . .

  2. Some photographers have certain compulsions in the scenes they photograph, myself included. I don’t necessarily think it’s a bad thing. When you see something beautiful and you photograph it. It’s not complicated at all.

  3. I’m with you – and Ken – love those palmettos.
