FLORIDA ART GALLERY

Images of Old Florida on the Back Roads

By  Mike Miller  Updated October 25, 2021

This Florida art gallery contains images I've created during my many years in Florida.  I have traveled by car in Florida over two million miles since moving here in 1960.  Many times on my trips I photograph things of interest. 

Cortez, Florida. The Fisherman Statue

In the early days I used a cheap camera using film.  Think Baby Brownie or even a Polaroid.

My albums are loaded with those old photos and some have been used on this website.  Some I have scanned onto my computer.  In more recent times I used digital cameras or my smart phones.

Many of these images I have turned into watercolors that try to capture what I saw when taking the photos.
