December On Duval

A few pictures of the main drag in Key West, the lower end of Duval Street. Pictures without words I think for the holiday. Warm sunny winter days make a pleasant contrast to the cold Up North.

 Everyone photographs Sloppy Joe's the Key West icon.

 And Rick's one of the other bars...
 Out of business. Yours for $30,000 a month or more.
 The Duval Shuffle with nowhere to sit to discourage the bums (who sit on the sidewalk anyway).
 Shorty's a cross between a convenience store, a market and a bar.
 The flag in the service of commerce.
 Everyone sits on the ground as there are no better choices.
 And then around the corner on Front Street I saw his relic of a bygone scooter era, a tiny Honda Spree, apparently in perfect working order. Ideal for Santa's elves.
Merry Christmas to all.

I once was amongst those photographing Sloppy Joe's Bar, too. Alas, the (pre digital) pics have meanwhile slipped away through the cracks of time, and are lost forever.
Merry Christmas to you and Layne. Enjoy your lush and frost free environment.

Merry Christmas too. Cheers. Actually it never seems to cool off anymore in winter. A bit scary.
