52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

9. Highways and Byways


I have been spending a lot of time roaming around Lido beach at sunset lately. Soon we will be moving to our new home in Lakewood Ranch. Although I am really excited that our home is almost complete I know I will miss being just a short walk from the beach.  On one of my recent sunset walks I went down a byway I have walked past many many times.  It’s hard to believe that this photo was taken just a couple blocks away from the very busy St. Armands Circle.

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!

  1. Your photos reflect your love for the beach and I know you will miss living so close to the water. One of the many good things about our area is that the beach is never too far away.

  2. such an inviting little pathway … lovely and a little sun flare too!

  3. Super picture. You would not know it was near civilization. It looks like a deserted area I was on in Crete some years ago.

  4. Mindy, this is a really great shot. And I will be looking for this byway on my next visit to Lido Beach, my favorite.

  5. Spectacular! I envy your talent with landscape shots. I took a photography class at Ringling and the professor told me I should “stay away” from landscapes. ( I agreed but I will still keep trying) So I REALLY appreciate how beautiful yours are Mindy. Just beautiful.
