At Redington Shores, you’ll find everything you need to unwind and relax. For miles there’s an abundance of natural beauty stretched along the Gulf of Mexico. I come here often usually to watch the sunset by the pier and catch up with needed alone time.
When I saw the epic view of someone doing back flips on a trick line between two palm trees and in front of the water, I knew I had to pull over and strike up a conversation!
Ben told me he was passing through Florida and only had a few days left. We exchanged contact information and planned to meet up in Turtle beach a few days later.
This was a new experience for me. I had never seen someone perform dangerous tricks on a thin elastic band and now I had the opportunity to take photos of it.
Watching Ben slack line was exhilarating because there’s a certain level of risk which puts you in a heightened state. There are so many ways to mess up but with his skill, his balance and commitment to the sport it made it even more exciting to capture!
Here are some photos I took of Ben
One hour and 10 minutes south of Tampa.
I hopped on I-75, rolled the windows down, blasted the music and cruised to Venice Beach.
The only plans I made were to walk around, sight-see and take photographs of what I found interesting. I arrived at Venice around 4:00 p.m which gave me a few hours of sunlight.
I parked in the Historic District and walked right over to the beach.
