Dinner at the Columbian Restaurant, Ybor City is a must do when you are there.
This colorful mural caught my eye on my first visit to Ybor City. Known for its cigar shoppes, motorcycles groupies and the Columbian Restaurant, Ybor is a collection of eclectic images with a definite Latino flavor. Visit in the daytime and the crowds are sparse, but Ybor comes alive for the young crowd late into the evening. One disappointment: we did not get any shots of the iconic chickens!
At one time, this building may have been the center of a busy downtown or industrial area, now it is a testament to age and neglect. However, it is also very interesting and every window frame, shutter and piece of wood makes its own statement.
You can imagine our disappointment when we traveled to St Mary’s Georgia and got to one of our favorite picturesque waterfronts. This is what we saw and it truly was the worst view ever of one of my favorite locations. It is not a great photo, but then it is what the theme says it is.
Jekyll Island’s hidden driftwood beach on the Atlantic coast is full of broken trees and branches, the result of relentless pounding by the surf and wind. But oddly they create very peaceful and serene photographs, especially at sunrise and sunset. Facing the east, the best time is sunrise. This image, taken at sunset, captured the warm lighting of the setting sun.
