Saturday Snapshot

Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce at At Home with Books. To participate, post a photo that you (or a friend or family member) have taken then leave a direct link to your post in the Mister Linky. Photos can be old or new, and be of any subject as long as they are clean and appropriate for all eyes to see. How much detail you give in the caption is entirely up to you. Please don’t post random photos that you find online.

Okay, today it’s time for the last of my Key West pictures (at least for now – in the middle of the winter, I might dig out some tropical pics to keep me warm). I always come home with photos of sidewalks and interesting houses and cars, signs and lamp posts, because I think those are the things that give a neighborhood its character. And believe me, Key West is full of characters!

I think if I were going to move to Key West, I would live on a boat…

I loved this bit of cement reef I passed, walking to the cemetery. If you look at the large version, you can see the bits of glass and concrete sculpting that went into it.

This is actually the entrance to a restaurant! BO’s Fish Wagon is a Key West institution. Check out the large size for more details.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be Key West without sunset over Sunset Key. It really is a spectacular view. Everyone takes photos of the sunset, but none of the pictures really do it justice.

    I always love taking pictures of random streets and buildings when I’m traveling–for just the same reason, it captures the character of a place, often more than the icons do. I love the funky things you captured!

    Can I come visit you when you move to Key West?

    Ahhhh… beautiful. I’ve only been there once but I do remember the character and charm you’ve captured in your photos.

    So much creativity in the cement and the entrance! It looks like a magical place to visit and watch a sunset!

    That is so atmospheric. The cement reef reminds me of the walls we saw on holiday in Cumbria, where the limestok rocks on the top weather into shapes that look like strange sculptures. My Snapshot is at http://goo.gl/ksE6O

    Bo Fish Wagon has an enchanting way of expression.
    A beautiful sunset with colors reflected on the water.

    What an interesting bit of sculpture….and cement reef is a really cool name for it. Love that sunset–I never get enough of sunset pictures.

    Here’s my Snapshot.

    Sigh. We are still dreaming of going. I have got to attack my bucket list – unfortunately it will have to wait.

    It looks such a fantastic place. Great photos.

    Such a gorgeous sunset — I think the best sunsets involve oceans!
    And I’m so hungry right now, that Fish Wagon seems like a place that I would probably be ordering ONE OF EVERYTHING.
