Beautiful Sand Key Photos

Well - I know we could add this to the St. Petersburg/Clearwater photo thread at some point but I thought maybe Sand Key with it's dozens of highrise condos and unparalled beauty could stand on its own for a little bit.

The parking garage in the last picture is beautiful.

Here's St. Pete from Snell Isle today. It's not Chicago but, it's growing!

Nice angle, it really shows off some density.

St Pete is going to end up really complimenting what Tampa will have. It is going to give us a really nice big size metropolitan.. I am bias, but we really do live in one of the nicest regions in our country..

I'm biased, and I think we live in one of the most uncomfortable, dirtiest regions in the country. :-P

The area is alright - for a month or two out of the here.... the (cultural) drought is the bad part. But to each his own...

Maybe culturally we haven't arrived yet, but if you think Tampa Bay is one of the dirtiest areas in the country, then give me some of that your smoking Maxim...

In order to assess "dirtiness," you would need to first understand the antithesis of ugly (or dirty, or whatever): beauty. I define beauty differently than most, and thus I don't overlook the miles of sprawling ghettos or trailer parks. I don't even consider the beige homes-to-go of the new suburbs "nice," and I certainly don't think the tacky McMansions of Cheval are inspiring - let alone beautiful. Superficial beauty is hard to come across here. Finding anything deeper is rarer.

Like I said, aside from two months of the year, don't bother trying to enjoy the pittance of West Florida's natural beauty that remains unmolested by bulldozers and eager yuppies.

Just my opinion.

Okay so your dirty is different than mine, I look at the Bay -Gulf sandy beaches-Hillsborough River- palm trees-tennis-fishing-golf capitol of the U.S.A.And the fact we are going to pass New York as the 3rd largest state and I have to wonder if all of these people are MAKING SMARTEST MOVES IN THERE LIVES, OR THE DUMBEST... My answer is the smartest..

Bias just a bit still..!!

But did want to say the St Pete skyline looks so much better than it use to..

I know that I am often a cheerleader for this area. I grew up here, but moved away to go to college and worked elsewhere for many years before I came back.

The area does have both negatives and positives... and because I love this area, I am very quick to point out the positives and the things I enjoy.

But I have to admit, I appreciate it more now since I have lived in other cities, traveled a bit and moved back here. I assume from another post (you applying to college) that you are a young guy. I think it is probably pretty normal to want to get out of town and see the rest of the world.

My point is: Just maybe someday after you leave and live in other places, you will appreciate the area more.

I thought about the fact that I am young before I posted the message - I usually do consider what I say ahead of time... and in this instance, I'm confident I've travelled enough to make that call. I've visited 25 states and five countries - more than most my age. I'm certainly not an expert, but I feel like I've made a thoughtful consideration of what I *want* to see in an area and what is lacking here is certainly apparent. I'm actually from Western Michigan, where I was born and spent a chunk of my childhood (I've lived in Boston and have spent approximately four months in S. California over the past three years, too...) so I haven't been tainted completely by Florida... but I do see your point, and I respect it. I'm not ready to make up my mind on everything just yet, but I do feel confident that this community is certainly lacking in many departments crucial to me. The social environment I prefer largely defines the "merit" of a place in my books, so if I don't feel as if there is enough for me here.... I can't help but envy other places I've found with the desirable elements, right? Or so I've reasoned... :-P Anyway, I still strongly believe in what I said, even if I said it a bit spitefully earlier...

Well, good luck in finding the culture that you are looking for. Personally, I like the "culture" of sport fishing. And I am able to enjoy it almost all year round here.

For an 18 yr old, your better than thou attitude is surely flowing....

Slow down, the vision you have now will not be the same when you are 21, 27, into your 30's and beyond. What defines an area to you now will definitely not be the same if you are lucky enough to raise a family of your own.
