|Photos I took during my explorations of the wilderness near my home in St. Augustine Beach.|
In 1967, I lived in a brand-new home on St. Augustine Beach, in a community called Coquina Gables. This development had been superimposed on a system of streets that had been laid in the late 1920s, before the Great Depression put a stop to silly things like investments. But those old streets provided access to the Florida scrub jungle, and my sisters and friends and I spent many summer days—when we weren't at the beach, itself—playing in the woods.
I was a budding photographer in those days, taking photos with any camera I could find, ranging from my grandmothers twin reflex and my mom's Brownie, to a $0.50 Diana camera I bought at the local Woolworth's, and a 3-D stereo camera I borrowed (and broke) from a neighbor.
And, since I've never taken a photo I didn't keep…here are pictures I took in the woods and at the beach.
