Colorful Photo of the Week: Matlacha Florida

Matlacha Florida

Because I have so many incredible photos that I haven’t posted on the site I thought I might create a weekly feature where I share an interesting photo I haven’t published before.  There are tons of works you haven’t seen.  Today’s photograph is from a 2010 road trip across Florida when we stopped in the tiny colorful town of Matlacha.  All the shops in its downtown are painted with happy, beautiful, bright, eye catching colors.  We pulled over to stretch our legs and I found this guy sitting out in front of a small town shop.  I think it’s creepy that he’s fake but still has a shadow.  But you know me and my overactive imagination.

Today’s word is colorful.



“Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.” Rabindranath Tagore

“I wanted change and excitement and to shoot off in all directions myself, like the colored arrows from a Fourth of July rocket.”  Sylvia Plath 

“I hunger for your sleek laugh and your hands the color of a furious harvest. I want to eat the sunbeams flaring in your beauty.” Pablo Neruda

“The sky above the port was the color of television, tuned to a dead channel.”   William Gibson

“The first stab of love is like a sunset, a blaze of color — oranges, pearly pinks, vibrant purples…”  Anna Godbersen
