Southwest Florida History and Culture

Tamiami Trail (Hwy 41) in Big Cypress National Preserve has always been a favorite drive of mine. I have photographed many wonderful images right along the road. I had passed Orchid Isles many times and lusted over the beauty of the front pond. The only thing that kept me from photographing the pond were the "No Parking" signs plastered all over the parking lot. It didn’t make sense. According to the signs on the building, Orchid Isles was a nursery that sold orchids and bromeliads. How could they make money if no one was allowed to park in the parking lot? I assumed the no parking signs were just part of the weirdness of South Florida and could be ignored…until I heard the sound of the rifle. Not being able to photograph the pond was a disappointment, but escaping with my life eased the disappointment quite a bit!...read more about the history of Big Cypress Gallery »
