Deep Lake Prison, Florida

March 11, 2009 Photography  9 comments

Rick, who is a friend of mine,  told me about this abandoned prison down in the Everglades and after he checked it out and posted his pictures, I just had to see it for myself.  So I dragged my husband down there yesterday and took some shots.

I am one of  ‘those people’ who believes in ghosts.  I don’t want to SEE them or hear them, but I believe.  Sometimes I do get a ‘feeling’ about a place, and believe it or not this place didn’t scare me.  What DID scare the heck out of me was hearing a snake rustle through some grass a few yards away from me.  I screamed, of course.  I scream at any snake really, even dead ones.

What I did keep thinking about was one of my favorite movies, Cool Hand Luke...

Eagle Watch In South Florida & Contest!

Eagles!

I was down in Broward County this past weekend and on my way back home I decided to check out the eagles’ nest I’d heard so much about.  Plus it’s right off of Pines Blvd and US27…and I was taking US27 north to head home anyway.  I wish I would have gotten there a tad bit earlier because the light was super harsh.  But, I was able to walk away with a photo of one of the adults feeding the chicks some fresh fish.

If you live in Broward County and would like to know more about these eagles check out THIS BLOG or this FLICKR set here from Ken Schneider or THIS ARTICLE from the Herald.  Some of you may say, “what’s the big deal?”.  Well, for as developed as Broward County is, it’s still amazing to see something like this happen out there…...
