Old Citrus Packing Plant Click here to view ONLY this message
     



    Not a wedding or portrait post, but lately I've been photographing landscapes for fun using a few old vintage Russian lenses. It's a manual focus lens and I have developed a newfound respect for non digital film photographers in previous years. It definitely is a steep learning curve to achieve accurate focusing.......and good eyesight!  I can't imagine photographing a wedding using only manual focusing when events like that move so fact with no room for error.  

    Regarding this image, it was taken at an old citrus packing barn in our locale. It it no longer used. In fact, the citrus industry in Brevard, Indian River County & pretty much all of central florida has been lost for a variety of reasons.Year after year I've watched the trees left dying the groves.  Development is a big factor as is the fact that people drink less citrus juice. Just look how tiny the space occupying juice now is in your grocery store. Then walk over the aisle promoting other types of beverages that have hit the market. New subdivisions now occupy much of the citrus farmer's land.  Disease in the groves was the beginning of the downfall.  Citrus canker, climate change (too many nights of freezing cold), & then groves became infected with a tiny bug carrying bacteria, which ultimately killed it. A Florida Without Oranges?  This is a great article describing the reality.

    What I miss most is the fragrant smell of the citrus blossoms in the spring. It always brought back childhood memories of visiting relatives living in Florida. The air was alway sweeter, the cousins were beautifully tanned, life was slower, sweeter, full of hope, adventure and possibilities! While I really miss the citrus farms, life and people are incredibility resilient. Olive farming in Florida? Maybe! Sweet olive blooms? Get ready. I've read they are amazing!

    Because photo sessions are all about fun & creativity. Love it when I'm able to catch the essence of one's personality, even if it means being transported back in time. This was pin up girl perfection!
