Cindy - Florida 9:20-10:20 AM

Today's walk was all business. This path runs right along 1-4 (the road that leads to Mickey Mouse). This fence fascinated me with all of the Spanish moss stuck in it. Read more about Spanish Moss on Hayley's post!

I passed by many modern office buildings. And was intrigued by the men washing the windows. They reminded me of Spiderman, or a scene from Mission Impossible. Looks dangerous!
You can see this building from I-4 and the bike path. It always grabs my attention. I clicked several times as I walked by, thinking of how I would compose a David Hockney style collage:). At Hayley's request, here is an example of a David Hockney photo collage. Click here, this example is similar to what I was going for here, but not typical of a Hockney collage. I think our creatively fit photo shoots would lend themselves nicely to this idea. It is sort of like Photo Cubism, varying perspectives of the same object collaged together to see different angles in one picture. Here's an example, click here. Hockneyizer here

The whole reason for taking this path was to cross over this bridge. It passes over I-4 and reminds me of a miniature Verrazano Narrows Bridge. We crossed the Verrazano dozens of times, when I was a kid, to visit my grandparents, in Staten Island.

Here are a few shots of the bridge coming back over from the other direction. And a couple of shots looking down at I-4.

What's a creatively fit walk without a little splash of color?! And a heart or two for Hayley:)

I enjoyed today's walk!
Did you?
Hope you're having a great day!

Great pictures today! Scary spidey-guys! I wonder if they get hazard pay? You must have had a delightful walk across the bridge. I always wondered about walking over that bridge...

When I think David Hockney, all I can picture is a print that used to hang in my hair salon of a room full of furniture. I think it was called Large Interior. I'm not sure what kind of collage you are going me, as I am curious! ;)

Great "flight" capture too by the way.

Love the pics as usual, I wish I can be more active, hopefully I will get back to walking. Curious, how has your weight changed and your measurements, I am sure by now all that good walking has resulted in more than just pictures. Please encourage me. It would also be nice to see how others have transformed since you started "creatively fit"

I've added a little Hockney info and examples of Hockney and Cubism at your request:)
