Passing by someone’s yard in Cedar Key, Florida, USA, I spotted a carousel horse as a garden statue standing among some bamboo plants. I just had to take the shot! It looked a little boring, so I transformed it into a magical ride through a bamboo forest. The horse’s pole blends right in with the bamboo stalks!

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.
