I haven’t posted in a couple of weeks because I’ve been gearing up for my brother’s wedding in Key West, which took place a week ago today. What a fantastic place! My husband Jake and I were last there in 1997 and it really hasn’t changed a whole lot. I took a bunch of film with me, including some Revolog and Velvia. I used my Holga during the wedding, loaded with black and white film, so that I could capture the little moments that the professional photographer may have missed. Don’t get me wrong, his work is beautiful, but when you look through the lens of a toy camera you see things a little differently.
Roosters, chickens and cats rule the island. It’s amazing that they all co-exist peacefully, but then again, it is Key West.
Key West doesn’t take itself too seriously, as evidenced by these funny and artful signs.

We were there, of course, to celebrate my brother’s wedding to his high school sweetheart, April. Here are a few people shots of the wedding and afterwards.
There was a lot of beauty to behold in Key West, along with the weirdness…..and lots of stray shopping carts.
I had such a blast with friends old and new. If you ever get the chance to take a trip to Key West, run, don’t walk to the plane. I’m hoping 15 more years won’t pass by before my next trip.
