Thomas Pirot in Cape Coral
A racquetball court at dusk adjacent to an idle parking lot is what made the picture to sum it all up. I didn’t even know of this longing for one image while I set up the camera to take it. Only later—when I came to acknowledge the colors of the sky, the soft wind that made the palm tree shake its leaves just enough to make sure its presence would be known on this still image and the feeling of the damp shirt stuck to my skin—I recognized that this is Florida in all of its hues.
