“A talented photographer with a poet’s eye, Mary Lou Johnson has done something rare. She’s captured not just the “real” Florida, but also the magical Florida, the one we see in our dreams and carry in our hearts. Her pictures are tender, honoring fragile details of sea oat, coquina and mist. But they are also majestic, celebrating sunset explosions and cathedrals of clouds. They’re so vivid you will smell the salty air, feel the hot sand between your toes, and hear gulls calling over the fizz of the incoming tide. If you’ve ever lived in Florida, these pictures will take you home again. If you haven’t, this beautiful book is your chance.”~ Kathleen O’Brien, author.
