“I love Altamonte Springs, the boardwalk, the park and the way the tower is illuminated with rotating colors at night! I was looking for an iconic image that spoke to me. I wanted to capture the electricity in the air at the beautiful Cranes Roost Park and the excitement and artistic energy of the Uptown Art Expo.
