Safety Harbor Gazebo
I have found that some of the best photo opportunities are right here in my own backyard. I try to pass through the historic Main Street in Safety Harbor near my home at least once a day to get ideas for photo projects. I have been photographing the Safety Harbor Gazebo in John Wilson Park for many years. The city does a beautiful job of rotating the flowers in front of the Gazebo seasonally.
Yesterday, during my visit to town I spotted this beautiful new planting and just felt the necessity to photograph this scene with my Panasonic Lumix DMC-LF1, my tiny go-everywhere camera. This camera also is my constant companion on my daily walks. It is amazing the different things that I have photographed right in my own backyard...wildlife, landscapes, architecture, people and flowers.

The photo above was taken at a new park in town, Mullet Creek Nature Park. The local garden club is doing a great job in keeping the flowering plants blooming.
This sunrise photo was taken literally outside of my front door. I was out just before sunrise to pick up the newspaper when I spotted this incredible sunrise. I knew that I only had seconds before this scene would be gone. I ran in the house and grabbed the Panasonic DMC-LF1 and took this picture just an instant before this beautiful scene disappeared.
