    Culture and Artistry Thrive In This Book

    The photography is this book is spectacular. I lived in the bay area for years and I have to be honest and say that I never knew half of these places listed even existed! I was amazed at the journey it took me through and have a list of places to visit soon. I not only purchased one for myself but for relatives up north who I have been trying to get to visit for a long time. They are actually coming to town soon and I believe largely due to the contents of this book. Whether you¿ve been to the Tampa Bay area or not¿this is a great book to have around. I think every hotel in the area would benefit from carrying these too! Brochures cannot touch the vibrancy of the bay area like this. I give two thumbs up and a standing ovation for this creation.

    One of the best books on Tampa Bay

    This is a great coffee table book on the beauty of the Tampa Bay area. It is filled with some of the most amazing images of the area, and makes for a great 'Where do I want to go this weekend?' guide as well. I never knew the area looked as beautiful and breathtaking until I picked up a copy of this book. Robert is a talented and gifted photographer who captured my hometown to perfection. I highly recommend this book to residents and visitors alike. A must have!
