Long known for its white crystal sandy beach, Siesta Key remains one of the premier vacation spots in the country.
There is something magical about Siesta Key, its white sand is formed from quartz crystal and some say, including many American Indian tribes in the area, that its mystical powers have long kept hurricanes from striking Sarasota County.
The American Indians always came here in the summer as they knew they would be safe from the storms. A hurricane has never struck Sarasota County.
Growing up on a dairy farm in southeastern Indiana, Gary traveled very little until midlife, when the opportunity became available to him.
Grabbing his camera and a bag full of equipment, he began his vision quest traveling to most areas of the United States and several countries abroad.
Along the way, he collected several thousand photographs that he wants to share with everyone.
Gary decided the best way to accomplish his goal was to publish photo documentaries on the various areas of the world he has visited.
What will follow will be several photography books, who knows how many will wind up in his collection.
