Naples, Florida: A Photographic Portrait

Naples, Florida: A Photographic Portrait




Wherever you live, you may have never heard of a town named after its Mediterranean counterpart— Naples. Residents, highly protective of their slice of heaven, try to maintain hushed tones about how perfect living can be in an earthly paradise. To those who have uncovered her splendor, Naples' reputation is that of a coveted vacation and seasonal destination for celebrities, Silicon Valley company executives, and professionals from every walk of life. Enamored with the temperate climate and irresistible Gulf breezes that blow warm from sun-up to after dark, snow birds, visitors, and locals are perpetually delighted as they move about their day with the aid of perfect weather. The wonder of spotting Naples' estuary wildlife, marine animals, land and seabirds winging through their natural habitats makes Naples a beloved destination for flora and fauna devotees and eco-tourists alike. Sighting one of 350 pairs of bald eagles, or an American alligator, languid sea turtles, Florida panthers to graceful dolphins and wintering manatees make the area a bonanza for eco-tourists. Enjoy this extraordinary photographic journey and be mesmerized by all that Naples was, is and what it will become.
