It's funny how different a place can seem in black and white. It's almost as if you're suddenly transported to the 1940s and 50s! You know what I mean, like any minute Esther Williams will appear in a swimsuit looking like a goddess wandering through the palms - followed by some great actor like Don Ameche or (sigh) Cesar Romero in a white dinner jacket.
Those were the days.
Don't you love that brooding sky as a storm approaches over the water? It's beautiful.
Here is a Fort Lauderdale, Florida beach before a storm. (And way before Hurricane Sandy hit!)
Get ready for some rain!
