19. Poverty and/or Wealth

5 Comments

I look at a photo like this and I see what appears to be poverty as well as wealth. With what appears to be all of her possessions in plastic bags, this woman stood alongside the sidewalk for a period of time looking towards the marina full of expensive boats and I couldn’t help but wonder what thoughts were running through her mind.

A true Southerner, I was born in Georgia but lived most of my adult life in Chattanooga, Tennessee. In 2001, my husband and I retired and moved to beautiful Sarasota, FL. We quickly realized that we were not retirement material and could not play golf two or three times a week so we got our real estate licenses and affiliated with Coldwell Banker on Longboat Key. My love for photography is very beneficial to me when photographing interiors and exteriors of the homes we list. Other than photography, I have a keen interest in genealogy and golf (whenever I can find the spare time from our real estate practice).

  1. I’ll bet she has the same thoughts as I have … Glad I don’t have one of those holes in the water. 🙂

  4. Sarasota is so like that, isn’t it? The juxtaposition of the two states (poverty and wealth) being everywhere. Our eye becomes jaded to that fact, but yours isn’t.
