Poinciana blossoms

Photographs from 1970, in a borrowed camera with frame size 28mm x 28mm. Negatives are scanned and the scans reduced to 1/4 scale, exact to the pixel, and sharpened. No adjustments to color or exposure after the scan. The longevity of the Kodak film is astonishing.

This is Key West before it became "Paradise", with rents and house prices raised to appropriately celestial levels. Once upon a time life here was simplicity and informality, about walking around the old town nodding to people talking on their porch, hearing conversations being held through open windows one neighbor to the other. As evening came on, lights came on in the old houses, the town became more beautiful, and the stars came out to see it for themselves.
