Project 365 - May 9, 2022

Flagler Arts and Technology Village

March 2022

It started with an idea, a place that allowed creativity to thrive, and invited the public to observe and interact with artists. Over the years the actors changed, but the theater continued to develop.  

The first few artwalks only had a limited number of audience members, but pre-pandemic, the crowds swelled to hundreds and then thousands.

Then, development and mixed-use buildings are about to enter the neighborhood and forever change F.A.T. Village.

In May, my friend and I headed to downtown Fort Lauderdale to capture images of what F.A.T. Village is all about and to memorialize it for whoever wants to view it as it is before change happens. 

The older I get, the more I understand that the only constant in life is change. 

I do hope that you enjoy these images.

Sometimes You Just Have to Stop and Look


I was on my way from one meeting to the next when I saw this little guy on a bench right outside my office. He was just staring me down and posing for me. I took a bunch of images but I really liked this one. 

So, sometimes you just have to stop and look because you don’t know when you will ever have a moment like this again.

Afternoon Walk


Gregg and I missed our morning walk because the minute we stepped outside, the skies decided to open up with a downpour. We ended up going to his screened in porch and having breakfast. 

Then I got busy with chores — laundry, cleaning the bathrooms and changing sheets.  At that point I had to sit down and read scholarship applications and then I looked at the clock at it was already 4 pm!

So, I took a break and did my morning walk in the afternoon. Luckily the weather had cleared up and theee was a beautiful breeze and only puffy clouds dotting the sky. 

These images were made within moments of my leaving the house!

Glowing Results


Driving home from work I was stuck in a little bit of traffic. I didn’t mind because it gave me a moment to make this image. The light of the sun was peeking through the clouds in just the right way to make this lovely effect.

A Fungus Among Us


I found this on a tree trunk along our morning walk.  Just a bit of mushroom growth, due in part, I am sure, because of the copious amount of rain and humidity over the past few days after a very dry and cool streak of South Florida winter weather. 

I am always surprised by the the little wonders of nature that we find, especially when we slow down and take the time to notice. 

The closer I look at this, the more I am amazed at the textures and formation of the mushroom. Also, I love the contrast of the colors.

Crimson Sunset


On my way home from work, the sunset was spectacular. Luckily, I had a moment to capture this image when I stopped at a red light. 
Such a nice way to end a workday.

Lunchtime 


I took a break from my new job and walked around the campus to explore a bit. I found a lovely spot by this lake, ate my sandwich and watched the Egyptian Geese watching me!

As uneventful as it was, it was a time to unwind and reflect on my new life.
