#Quest to Catch the Big One?

beach-fishing-venice-ps-webThese photographs were taken at Venice Beach, Florida.

Besides a glorious beach with a lot of shark teeth to be found,

there’s a delicious restaurant called Sharky’s on the Pier

and a fishing pier for anyone who is inclined to relax after dinner with a fishing rod.

Fishing a large pastime in Florida.

Go anywhere there’s water with a pier

and you’ll see amateur or experienced fisherman

on a quest to catch the BIG one.

The BIG one always gets away.

Enjoy … Isadora

#Working #Together


A view from the restaurant we were enjoying lunch at recently on Matlacha Island.


It’s fascinating to see how nature adapts to its difficult circumstances. 

These plants decided to make a new home on these tree stumps.

Wordless Wednesday – Body Painting


The hand painting is by a talented London-based body painter Annie Ralli. Photographed by Ray Massey,

this hand illusion is part of an advertising campaign for Ecclesiastical Insurance,

a niche insurance company using the byline “You’re in good hands”.

“Body painting is a skill I perfected working with still photographers,” says Annie Ralli,” who is also a former BBC scenic artist.

“It’s meticulous work, but it has to be carried out with speed,

partly because the “canvas” walks away at the end of the day and partly

because paint is less stable on a living, moving base. The work is fun and the results can be beautiful.”
