Photo Spot: Weeki Wachee Springs Contrast Study

I have many passions. Obviously I enjoy Disney and all of its characters, movies, and Theme Parks. But I’m also an avid reader, so many of my posts will focus on vintage hardcover publications. But artwork and photography have always been a big part of my life, perhaps more than any of these other things!

So when I travel, such as to places like the Weeki Watchee Springs State Park in Florida, I always find something to photograph.

I try to choose subjects that aren’t just made-to-order beauty shots. Point-and-click compositions are nice and a part of anyone’s vacation journal, but more should be done to find interesting and creative shots as well.

Weeki Wachee Springs is a quintessential Old Florida site and is home to the deepest freshwater cave system in the country and abundant vegetation and protected wildlife. It is the vegetation that caught my eye in the shot above.

I love the competition from left to right: bland to vibrant colour / focused to unfocused / and the variety of textures. It doesn’t really have a central subject or theme, but stands alone as a study in contrasts.
