Bayfront Park in Sarasota has benches along a winding path. A good time to come is the evening to watch the sunset by the water.
One side faces the city, the other Sarasota Bay. There are yachts docked, so it's also a residence of sorts for folks that live on their vessels. That sounds like a fun lifestyle.
Each time I come there is something to see. I always bring my camera looking for stories. Stories are little vignettes of life that, when we see, it sparks our imagination. In that way, the photo doesn't have to be too complicated. I think this photo is an example of what I mean.
This is a common scene at the beach and a good illustration of why I prefer the west coast of Florida.
Or for that matter, the west coast of anywhere. Sure, you can get up early to see the sunrise on the east, but it's not the same. Watching the sun sink into the ocean at the end of the day is observed facing west only.
According to astonomy.com (http://www.astronomy.com/magazine/ask-astro/2017/12/galaxy-rotation), about half of the galaxies rotate clockwise like ours, and the other half counterclockwise. That means that planets in other galaxies, and maybe a few in our own, have planets with the sunset in the east — something to think about.
At the tip of Longboat Key is a beach strewn with the remnants of past storms. It creates a surreal scene, and it's a nice place to hang out.
The beach is only accessible by hike so, it becomes a bohemian camp of sorts. You feel very much away from it all here. Each time I come, there are groups of people in temporary camps with hammocks hanging from the trees. Sometimes they are playing music or singing, like gypsy gatherings in a Patrick Rothfuss novel.
At around sunset on any given day, you'll see photographers trek here with their clients. I've done that, but I also look for unique scenes like this when I come alone.
