    Jacksonville FL

    I'm just back from the APA Florida conference and captured these images.

    Great photos of my home town RJ! I went to high school right on the river not too far from where you were.

    In the helicopters. There's a guy delivering beer and somebody driving the water taxi.


    I...don't...like...taking...pictures...of...people. Enuf said.

    Actually, the downtown area was vacant during my early morning walk....7:30 am or so.

    Nice photos, RJ. I like the one of the poster of the boy peeking out. I forget how nice some of the buildings are in my home town. Thanks for putting them up. I guess I will have to revisit some of those places the next time I travel in that area.

    My HS's colors were Red & White...if that gives you any hints and I'm not talking red, like maroon...however we might have worn skirts with maroon in them!

    Yes, I know those colors VERY well. Sounds like a match.

    Great pictures RJ! Maybe it was just the angle, but it seemed like Jacksonville has a spread out downtown, with the taller buildings more spread out. Some of the older buildings gave Jacksonville a similar vibe to Charleston.

    Thanks. But as you all know, I'm the worst photographer ever. What can I say?

    Jax is a cool place...with some pretty good golf courses.
