I thought I might do a lot more beach/boardwalk photography while I was at the Naples Grande, but shortly after I finished taking the pictures below, I came down with something of a head cold. Add this to food poisoning early in January and this horrible tooth that is causing me troubles to seemingly no end, and I have to say it's been a bad year so far for me, health-wise. I look forward to my body getting back to normal and acting like I am young because I am! In the meantime, here are some images from the Ft. Myers' ArtFest over the weekend. This is my stepfather with a group of ladies called the Calendar Girls. They were fun. Of course I can't pass up the happy doggy photos. Check out this awesome little guy in this dude's arms. The highlight of the festival was a group of local art students doing chalk drawings. It took them all day to make these pieces. Finally, I took a picture of this lady sitting in a beautiful little pool of light behind her stall. A minute later, she was yelling at me about not photographing her artwork. Didn't figure it was worth arguing with her. And now bonus: my stepfather in an Imperial Guard costume. His friends are pretty whacky and he's a pretty good sport. I suspect things will continue to be somewhat slow here on the blog as I recover from these various ailments, try to catch up on everything (including exercise!) and go back down to Florida for yet more work. It's a busy time, really. Catch you on the flip side!
