A Weekend in the Florida Keys

One of my best friends got married in the Florida Keys, and being that she scheduled it in January, all of us Midwestern folks said, OH YES! Leaving cold and snowy Iowa in the middle of January for warm and sunny Florida is not a terrible idea. So here's a little roundup of some of my images from the weekend. We stayed at a resort near Marathon, but took a day drive down to Key West. It was a new area for me to explore and we found so much beauty and fun. Since I had no schedule work photography on this trip, I was truly able to just let loose, ahem, photography wise ;), and do a lot of experimenting. I did some Lomo Purple, film soup, intentional light leaks, multiple exposures and played around with my new Spektrem Effects Motion Filter. Of course I did some "traditional" photography as well, but with the time of year, having this freedom to create whatever my heart desired was really good for me. I hope you enjoy the glimpse into my vacation!
