Partial Recall

Going through my archive today, I happened upon this sidewalk portrait.

Of course, I’m the author. The problem was that I had a bit of trouble remembering the session.

The details were sketchy. As I thought about it, the memory came into focus.

At first glance, it looked like San Diego. As my eyes circled the frame, something about the bench rendered a clue.

Lots of places in California are now bereft of benches that can be used for sleeping.

That means that this location was Florida. The town of Celebration is the exact location. While the sense of serenity is manufactured, that doesn’t mean it’s not serene. It is.

It’s also a stellar place for outdoor portraiture which I shouldn’t forget.
