Just someone's yard. I think that yard privacy is a premium in that section of town because of all the touristas. If you check the google map I linked to, you can see that it's much more overflowing with live foliage during the summer.

i'd love to walk around my area and take photo's but, i'm afraid that someone would call the cops on me. lol

we have this old abandoned barn in the middle of this wooded area thats weather beaten and has stuff growing all over it. (it's amazing) i want to photograph it but the brush is so thick i'm scared i'd get tons of ticks on me. there is also this amazingly cool looking tree over a pond but it's in someones front yard. i'd have to go across I95 to photograph it without being seen and arrested so, i just havent done it.. i will someday!

i also loved taking pics in grave yards years ago. (back in s. florida) i went to this one really old one from the 17-1800's and found the most awesome grave. it had a saying on it that i'll never forget.

it said,
"Beula
Remember man, as you pass by,
where you are now, there once was I. Where I am now, you soon will be, so prepare yourself to follow me."

I took several photos of it but the words were blurred in every picture. (the top and bottom of the stone and backround were completely in focus) creepy eh?

That's a fantastic headstone.

My best friend's family takes their summer vacation to St. Augustine every year. She is even naming her baby boy Augustine (she's is due in June) because it has such great memories for her. The pictures are amazing.
