    10 days in Florida

    Hi! Just came back from sunny state of Florida. As usually America keeps amaze me with its beautiful nature. The sun is tender (there was't that crazy heat as it was in NYC and DC last week, so, thanks god, we missed that hell) and the ocean water is transparent and surreal turquoise. The Mexican Gulf (Sarasota region) is clean so far and looking at it's snow-white sand beaches you can't stop thinking about stupidity and egoism of human nature, how could they ever put under risk that unique resorts, installing oil drills in the Gulf!?
    Well, here couple of pictures I took during ours with my wife trip.


    Key Largo - chain of isles at the most southern part of USA. Two meters from a shore here we saw a huge (more than 3 meters long) mamatee just relaxing




    Fort Lauderdale beaches.




    Art deco district in Miami Beach




    While on every corner people make money showing crocodiles to a tourists, this guy popped out of the water near rest area on the way to Sarasota. For FREE!




    Pelicans, seaguls and herons don't even care about people.




    That tiny lizard charmed me, but then I saw 1.5 meter iguanas taking a sun bath just near our car.




    Turtle nests are under US laws protection.





    Wilderness. (Myakka river state park)... Jesus... 2.5 miles walking just to see that the water in swamps was too high to reach the alligators place, and 2.5 miles back. But it was an experience.




    Key West - the only Caribbean US island and the country's most southern point. It is only 90 miles from Cuba.





    There is definitely Caribbean mood on its streets





    But at the same time it is very american





    But life style is still relaxing, people are friendly and... well, they are islanders.





    And here we are in Viscaya Palace in Maiami. Amazing place.

    "The watch has to be surrounded by a history.
    You need more than just a great design. You need to create an atmosphere around the product.
    Who is the company behind it? Why are they using this material?
    People need to be able to identify the watch with themselves. It's based on emotion." - Ralph Furter

    ...that's just my opinion and I've been wrong before and will be again and might be now!

    For me, every day is a new thing. I approach each project with a new insecurity, almost like the first project I ever did, and I get the sweats. I go in and start working. I'm not sure where I'm going - if I knew where I was going, I wouldn't do it. Frank Gehry

    You live in Paradise!!!! The only thing bothers me - dickheads who tend to screw everything they touch. I hope the worst is over and BP will stick to its promises to clean all the mess.

    Thanks Ozy! Do it. It's a long flight, but worth it. Just check the hurricanes schedule...

    Really fantastic photos - made me wanna be there - I could smell the sea salt in the air - my fave was the 2 guys greeting with fists, a wonderful "decisive moment" snap

    Just not sure about a gentleman wearing white linen trousers
