Overgrowth Posted in Photo Blog, Portfolio, on April 15, 2011 I finally got a chance to take a much needed vacation not to long ago. I decided to fly down to Florida and visit some of my friends from Jacksonville, FL and enjoy the warm weather.

There was so much growing on it and the shape of ho ... 0 Urban Dwellers Posted in Photo Blog, Portfolio, on April 4, 2011 I was finally able to take a vacation a few weeks ago, so I decided to get out of the gloomy and cold Chicago for warm and sunny Jacksonville, FL. I spent a few days there then headed to Tampa. I was exploring a different area of Jacksonville called five points and I must say it was a very nice area. I was especially happy with all of the random ... 1 Light Graffiti Posted in Photo Blog, on July 14, 2010 Here is a photo out of the archives.  A few of my friends wanted to play around with some sparklers so I had to shoot some photos of them.  This was at the fireworks show on Jacksonville Beach, FL.  Unfortunately we were upwind from the show and smoke clouded most of the fireworks.  So all of us decided to make our own fireworks show on the bea ... 0 Festival of Lights Posted in Photo Blog, on December 1, 2009 Christmas spirit has begun in Jacksonville.

There were events all week and I had the pleasure of picking out a great spot to take photos of the boat parade and the stunning firework display. 4 The Blue Angels Posted in Photo Blog, on November 12, 2009 The Jacksonville Sea & Sky Air Show was last weekend. It was pretty great to watch and I had the pleasure of watching the Blue Angels perform 4 times since they practiced and performed right over the beach by my house.

That was the feeling for this photo my friend posed for during Halloween this year. 0 Watching The Horizon Posted in Photo Blog, on August 10, 2009 Another day of observing what was going on at the Jacksonville Pier. I think its almost creepy that these viewers are made to almost look like a human face. I have always found it a bit strange. 1 Friendly Reminder Posted in Photo Blog, on July 17, 2009 Just a friendly reminder to throw away your fish parts! I took this photo when I was waiting to hopefully see the space shuttle launch. Unfortunately poor due to poor weather I was not able to see it. Have a great weekend! 0 Looming Thunderstorm Posted in Photo Blog, on July 15, 2009 I was on the Jacksonville Beach Pier on Monday hoping to see the smoke trail from the space shuttle launch. Unfortunately about 5 minuets before launch time it was scrubbed because of thunderstorms getting too close down near Cape Canaveral. While I was waiting for the launch we had our own thunderstorms moving in and I was hoping they would not c ... 0 Street Light Rain Posted in Photo Blog, on June 29, 2009 Did the Midwest move with me to Florida? There was a tornado reported in downtown Jacksonville a few days ago.. Lots of heavy rain and high winds.. Unfortunately I was not able to get out ahead of the storm to get any great pictures but I did take this photo of heavy rain at my house. 0 Washing Up Posted in Photo Blog, on June 17, 2009 I was exploring the Jacksonville Fishing Pier today and saw this man washing up enjoying the view of the coming sunset. There were lots of people out fishing on the pier. Very interesting to watch everyone doing what they enjoy. 0 Against The World Posted in Favorite Photos, Photo Blog, Portfolio, on June 10, 2009 I found this lock attached to a railing while walking on the Main street bridge in Jacksonville. The lock looked very out of place but was obviously put there purposely. There were some other writings on it but this was the most meaningful. I would like to dedicate this photo to my friends Dusty & Lauren. 0 Broken Home Posted in Photo Blog, on May 13, 2009 An abandoned house on the intracoastal in Jacksonville, Florida. The house looked like it had been abandoned for quite some time. 0 Five Flags Posted in Photo Blog, on April 17, 2009 Five flags flying at “The Landing” in Jacksonville, Florida. During my week visiting there it was an amazing time and an amazing city. 0 Flying Away Posted in Photo Blog, on April 15, 2009 A pelican startled by us driving by on a boat on the intercostal in Jacksonville, Fl. 1
