FRIday Fun – Random Pics

There are so many details, both large and small that add a richness to living in a small town. A short walkabout is a photographer’s dream as all of these images were captured within a few blocks of one another.

Fernandina Beach can be found in the extreme northeast corner of Florida – it’s located on the first barrier island (Amelia Island) along Florida’s east coast just across the border from St. Marys, Georgia.

It’s certainly worth a visit – there’s nowhere else in Florida like it and we’ve got 13 miles of beautiful unspoiled sandy beaches too!

1968 Kaiser Jeep US Army Ambulance

This weekend the 24th Annual Amelia Island Concours d’Elegance came to a conclusion. There are so many events going on during our “March Motor Madness” it’s hard to keep up with all of the activity. One event, in particular, was held at the Fernandina Beach Municipal Airport and consisted of a display of about ten vintage US military vehicles all in operating condition and plated for use on the road.

Pictures at an Exhibition – Nassau County Courthouse

20181018_153237

It’s one of my most photographed spots in our historic district – the Nassau County Courthouse. I’ve been honored to have my award-winning photograph hang “forever” inside the courthouse along with about fifty others as part of an exhibition of images and paintings of our beloved landmark. Each image was personally selected by the Honorable Judge Robert M. Foster, Chief Judge of the Fourth Circuit Court here in Nassau County (Florida).

It’s been fun documenting the construction of this building starting back in early January of this year (2018). I think that all involved did an outstanding job.
