Larry Gray is an author, and landscape, wildlife, and travel photographer located in Orlando, Florida. He is a native Floridian with ancestral roots in Florida back to the mid-1700s. The love of travel developed during adolescence. Not distracted by computers that didn't exist at the time, he had a car, and with the gas wars of the 1960s encouraged to explore. In 1969 he bought his first camera, a Mamiya/Sekor, and the photography experience grew from there, selling and teaching photograph techniques during college. Military service further enhanced both the travel and photography experience with PCS, permanent change of station, every three years creating new locations to explore, including International.
This book was a natural expansion. Sharing Florida's experiences as they continue to evolve, ever-changing while other areas preserved, including the pristine beaches like existed decades ago. It is little wonder that when he hears tourists say they have seen Florida after their Disney visit, he is thinking, "No, they haven't. Beyond tourists, so many people relocate to Florida. Welcome. He hopes this book helps you explore your new home.
