The Citrus Lens photo blog has a lot of nice Florida themed pictures of places to go and see. We've actually been to most of the major places featured on the site, which makes me feel like I haven't missed too much during my almost 8 years of living in the Sunshine State.
One of my favorite series of photos focuses on the Florida Botanical Garden in Largo. Linda and I visited the gardens a couple of years ago. There was a special event being held in the parking lot and after checking out all the booths we decided to tour the gardens. It's a fantastic place. The photos on The Citrus Lens kind of make me want to visit again sometime soon.
We spent our first 4 1/2 years as Florida residents in Casselberry, FL and visited Church Street Station numerous times - usually on Sundays. The Citrus Lens has several nice photos of The Station. I especially like the train picture. I don't remember the train being there when we visited. Maybe it's a more recent addition?
And finally, if you're thinking of purchasing some photo equipment to start capturing your own unique images of this tropical paradise there's a My Gear section on the site that can offer you some suggestions.
Here's a few of my own suggestions at various price points:
Panasonic Lumix DMC-FH20 - Inexpensive camera with some medium and high end features including movie recording.
I use a Sony A700, that is now a discontinued model. It's a 12.2 megapixel camera with built-in anti-shake capability. It can use just about any of the older Minolta lenses that were very, very popular in the 1980's. And, if I can ever save up enough "extra" money there are some killer Sony G-Series lenses built specifically for Sony that can bring out the best in digital photos.
