Storm Clouds, Beach

Storm Clouds, Beach - Even with an approaching storm, a few beach-goers decided to stay and enjoy the beach and water. (For the record, I took this on my way off the beach...)

Earth Day

Earth Day - Tom Hallock (also seen here) teaches a nature writing class at the University of South Florida St. Petersburg. The photos here are from his 2011 class's Earth Day clean-up at Bartlett Park, several blocks from the USFSP campus. Salt Creek touches Bartlett Park, so, of course, the semester-long clean-up of the creek figured in predominantly to the day's festivities.

Poster: You Are Here

Tom Hallock listens to a question from one of the students before several groups start the clean up.

A group of students head off to clean up part of Salt Creek's shoreline.

Some of the students took off on kayaks and row boats to assist in cleaning up the waterway.

How much garbage was picked up in the few hours that the class was here? This is only part of it...

...and here's some more of the day's garbage. If we all clean up after ourselves, maybe some day, this won't be necessary.

Karma and Drexie

Karma and Drexie - Karma and Drexie frequently spend their days sleeping together (and sometimes separate), when they're not playing a rousing game of tag or getting into mischief. Here, Karma (the black cat) is being groomed by Drexie, who only partly made it into this photo.

Ybor City

Ybor City - Several shots of the Ybor City section of Tampa, Florida. Ybor has seen many changes over the years. While I don't usually promote Wikipedia, you can get a decent (though brief) idea of the changes and general feel of the place by clicking here.

Note: For a decent history of Ybor City, I recommend Gary Mormino's book The Immigrant Word of Ybor City: Italians and Their Latin Neighbors in Tampa, 1885-1985.

Finally Tampa Bay Times writer Jeff Klinkenberg's article about Gary Mormino's retirement is a must read.

Two more photos from Ybor City were posted on February 12.
