I took a little road trip to go to a flea market I heard about and ended up enjoying the old Florida road and all of the photo opportunities much more than the destination - although I did like that, too.
I left my house in Jacksonville, drove a little North and West and caught up with Route 301 South. I was rewarded right away with things I wanted to photograph.
This grocery sign was right next to the exit of a church and church had just let out. So while I was taking this photo every driver of the car that passed me smiled and waved, so I did the same. Small towns :) Gotta love em.
I wanted to photograph every farm stand and all of the signs announcing the produce coming up in the stand. Strawberries were plentiful. I didn't stop for any of the stands but this one, but I'll be back to this road again as I missed a lot. I just didn't want to stop every 20 feet.
Doesn't this gift shop, just North of Starke, FL, scream "Old Florida!" It even had the pecan candies sign on top. I can't believe there was an older car in the parking lot. That helps make the scene.
You can get just about anything here, and a little snack, too!
Then I found the boot.
This was in Starke, FL. Great great sign. I had to take a photo of the shady side because the sunny side was completely washed out. That Florida sunshine really fades red paint.
Around here if you have a bumper sticker with anything red in it, the red is probably gone. So those I heart cats or gators bumper stickers just say I (space) cats.
Waldo's Farmer's and Flea Market - home of the big horse. And indeed it is a big horse :)
More about the Flea Market this week.
That's what's happening in my part of the world.
