A few months ago I photographed Dade City – the same small Florida town where I encountered an unexpected parade that I posted about. I returned shortly thereafter with my photography phriend Paula Showen, whom I’ve mentioned before. That day she taught me how to photograph for the HDR technique. I’ve mentioned that before, too, in my last post about Florida Polytechnic’s IST building and the Airstream Ranch.
Therefore, this post is actually more about the photographic HDR process than Dade City, but I’m including some interesting history of the place sprinkled in.
As you might imagine, I have been experiencing a little culture shock since recently moving back to Florida from Europe. In the spirit of “when in Rome” I’ve tried to find interesting things in the local area to amuse myself with and to report to you.
On a recent, rather stir crazy day, I ventured out to Dade City, about 30 minutes’ drive from my home. I’d never been there before but had heard they had quaint antique shops to visit and a very walkable shopping district.
