Drive just a few miles outside of Kissimmee and the sea of hotels, gift shops, questionable restaurants and theme park-related tourist traps disappear. These obstructions give way to Central Florida’s natural beauty, cypress swamps and pastures. This is by far the Florida I prefer. It is the Florida that surrounded me growing up, before “Disneyfication” completely turned the place upside down. In childhood, I often walked through the pastures and cypress swamps near our home with my friends. Those adventures revealed so many little marvels of nature; marvels that seemed to me then and still do now to be revelations of Divine planning and intent. It saddens me that my favorite childhood swamp is now a parking lot and apartment building. I suppose they live on, in a sense, having given life to the fascination I have today with observing and photographing the order from which our chaos is derived.
From a technical standpoint, today’s photo is about composition and using lines to draw and direct the viewer’s eye. I hope you like it.
