I've always been fascinated with the honky tonk beach towns of southern Florida. The pastel colors, short term rentals communities and water themed murals around every corner make up that Americana that appeals to me. While modern resort towns boast sterile hotels and five star restaurants, I've always found more character in the rough-around-the-edges beach areas. They tend to attract the blue collar snowbirds. Patriotic alleyways of sand and painted vinyl siding baking in the sun. Walking these streets you're greeted with the smell of cheap beer and cigarettes lingering in the air. These images were made using a 6x7 rangefinder and Portra color film.
