One of my earlier shots, this one isn’t the most expertly-composed, but the feeling I got after opening it up in Photoshop and physically feeling the warmth that they image conveyed, it quickly became one of my favorites.
Majestic condo units tower above the Sarasota Bayfront just before sunset.
Island Park, a popular park on the bayfront, features an impressive dolphin fountain display set against many interesting backdrops, including downtown Sarasota, and from this angle, a waterfront hotel.
Dozens of boats occupy the docks on the Sarasota Bayfront as the sun sets and night approaches.
Another shot from my last roll of Agfa Vista 400 in the AE-1; I love how accurately the camera picked up the fringes of light from the moss on the tree.
I’ve tried a few times to capture this particular view before, and was never satisfied until I shot it on film this time. This is as close to what I saw with my own eyes as I could get.

A long exposure shot I did while waiting to work on some night sky/star shots at Turtle Beach here in Sarasota. Wonderful evening, very quiet, and mostly empty. I’d replicate this experience every single night if I could.
An old porch on a historic building, with the sun fading in the background. This light exposed all of the imperfections and age of the wood.
Beach grasses highlighted against a setting sun on Siesta Key beach.
Nothing as beautiful as Siesta Key Beach just before sunset…
