Over 100 craft beers are featured in this annual event. During my photographing, I ran across these two women dressed as mermaids. I used a flash when… Continue reading Two Mermaids

Every year in Downtown Orlando, a Gay Pride Parade happens. Of course, because of Covid-19, it didn't happen in 2020. I took this pic in 2019. This was before the parade started. I took many pics that day. Yet, this one stood out. I guess I was influenced by the Thanksgiving Parades broadcasted on television… Continue reading Macy’s Balloon in Orlando Pride Parade

Outside, you can't help noticing… Continue reading The Wheel at Orlando’s Icon Park
