Sunset – Key Largo, FL

The Florida Keys are famous for their breathtaking sunsets. On any given day, the beaches are filled with people watching for the “green flash” – the moment when the sun disappears completely below the horizon.

The Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine was founded in September, 1565, making it the oldest parish in the US and Canada. It sits in the center of historic St. Augustine, America’s oldest city. It underwent major renovation on its 400th anniversary in 1965 but still retains the authentic flavor of the Spanish Franciscans who founded the parish.

Panasonic Lumix LX5 – my new best friend

I just traded up my beloved Panasonic Lumix LX3 for the new LX5. For those of you that have not seen the LX5 and its daddy the LX3, it is like having an old Leica in your hands. If you are in a situation where a big DSLR is just not possible or practical, this is the perfect camera. It does just about everything creative you can do with a full size DSLR without the weight and size. It allows for discreet shooting with the highest possible image quality. AND it also shoots beautiful HD movies, too! PS…got a gently pre-owned model at B&H Photo in NY for $349 vs $499 new. When it arrived, it was indistinguishable from a new one. Great deal!!!
