Photography Must take pictures

Husband and I will be arriving in Key West on 6-8 and staying till 6-15. Celebrating birthday and anniversary. I am photo crazed, and the last time I was in Key West, cameras held film. Imagine my excitement now wit digital. I know things have changed much since 1985, so what are the things (you photo loving folks) that I must photograph that I will regret not getting when I get home? We are planning a day trip to Dry Tortugas National Park, excited about that.

Thanks - counting down the Days

My wife loves taking pictures in KW. THE SUNSETS!! Chickens, chickens, chickens, cool people like Elvis on his moped, Mr. Chapman on his disco bike, pictures of the awesome meals and drinks, and of the older houses. Pictures of sailboats, and some really good ones if you are on the sailboat, too. Plenty of other stuff, these are just the first things that comes to mind.

Fort Zach is one of my favorite spots to take photos ... from the fort to the beach, from early til sunset. West Martello is another good spot. The Top of La Concha. The tower at the Wrecker's Museum. The lighthouse. Wander the streets ... get out on the water ... there's always something to capture! Have fun!! =)

DiCapac makes cases that will fit all the point & shoot digital camera (and phones). I used mine to get this photo:


And of course, you'll need a sunset photo. Just be sure, if you're taking a photo of someone in front of the sun, be sure to set the flash to Force Flash. Unless you like silhouettes.


But some of the best photos are the ones of those humorous things you'll see while walking around... or maybe when having lunch at Southernmost Beach Cafe!

Here are some things I like to take pictures of --



Random art in people's yards, porches, fences, wherever

Chickens, cats, dogs, lizards of all types, horses (usually those have a police officer on them)

Front doors

Flowers, trees, vines and vegetation in general

Vehicles (you'll know them when you see them)

Funky people, Funky things


Places I love (inside and out)

Look up -- so much to see when you look up

It is ENDLESS.............
