52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

49. Anyone Home?

6 Comments

Last week while driving around I took a wrong turn and stumbled across a little gem. It’s called Jiggs Landing and is located on the Ever’s Reservoir on the Bradenton River.

The site was originally purchased in the mid 30’s by Al (Jigs) Metcalf and his wife Agnes Spicer Metcalf and established as a fish camp and safe harbor for those in need of one spiritually, physically or emotionally.

Manatee County acquired Jiggs Landing in 2005. Restoration was completed in 2011. Now visitors can rent one of the 4 little cabins, fish, have a gathering in the picnic shelter or visit the replica cabin. It’s fun to wander the peaceful grounds and enjoy the Old Florida charm in a place that is quickly becoming surrounded by new home construction.

I thought the little turquoise cabins fit perfect with my “Anyone Home?” theme.

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!
