October is the month where my photographic life starts to pick up. With the cooler temperatures come more outdoor events here in the beautiful state of Florida, specifically South West Florida. I shoot more concerts, festivals and portraits during the fall & winter months than any other time of the year, and some weeks it’s totally crazy. I don’t mind the crazy because October is what I call my “sad” month; it’s the month my father passed away thirty-three years ago on October 17. I have written before that he too was a photographer and I know if he could see what I have done with a camera he would be incredibly proud of me, but I miss him. This is also the month my oldest son Jimmy turns 33; where has the time gone? I was just a young girl of twenty-four when this all took place, truly a lifetime ago.
I have a lot of wonderful events on the books and I’m sure I’ll be writing more as they unfold, but for now………daddy, this one’s for you.
