I was born in Florida and lived in Sarasota and St. Pete until I was ten years old. I guess when you live in a place when you're young it works its way into your soul, so that you have a deep, deep connection that you can't really explain. I feel that way about Florida. I moved back as an adult and lived there between 2002 and 2006. I traveled all over the place, exploring its nooks and crannies, I love that state. These are just a few photographs from my time there. Here's a more complete Flickr set.
