Welcome to our photo journal,
I grew up exploring the waters surrounding South Florida and the back country of Flamingo, in Everglades National Park. I spent so much time there that when I left to go, friends and family would say, "He's heading to the back country again." Another favorite place of mine was Fisheating Creek, north of Lake Okeechobee. Unfortunately, due to the enviromentalist and various other reasons, the area was closed to public access for a number of years. "The Creek" has been opened up to the public again, but the surrounding land is now off-limits. Check it out at http://www.fisheatingcreekoutpost.com
. As years past my trademark became, "BackCountryBound" or "BCB", so I thought it fitting to name our site the same. Instead of the backcountry of Flamingo, we are now traveling the back roads of America.
My wife grew up on an island called Key Biscayne, just off Miami, Florida. The island went from a quaint atmosphere, with a handfull of homes, to a concrete jungle today, spoiling its tropical flavor and lifestyle. My grandfather was allowed to hunt with the Seminole Indians back in the early 1900's. My great uncle was one of the "barefoot mailmen" that walked the beaches of the east coast of Florida delivering mail up and down the coast, before Henry Flagler put the railroad in to Miami.
Life is like a book, filled with many chapters. Photography puts a picture to those chapters. Unfortunately, it wasn't until recently,in the big time line,that the digital world allowed us to capture so much, so easily of those chapters.
My wife and I are now retired and continuing to add chapters to our book of life. I have finally ventured beyond Flamingo, but it will always hold a special place in my heart. To all our friends and family, we hope you will enjoy us sharing a few chapters, as we continue our journey thru life.
