Traveling in My Own City

9:19 PM

One of my favorite things about traveling is taking pictures. I'm a bit of a shutterbug. I think I I'm not an awesome photographer, but I love the art of it. Sometimes I get a great shot, and sometimes it just captures a memory. Either way, it's one of my favorite things. Well, I haven't traveled anywhere lately and I've been itching to take some great location pictures. And it hit me the other day during my long commute through of most of downtown Tampa, that there are some beautiful locations right here! So my sister and I spent a Saturday driving & walking through parts of Tampa and taking pictures of whatever struck us as interesting, beautiful, or unique. Here are just a sampling of some of our pictures...
