Here are a dozen icons made with my own photographs of the landmarks and scenery in St. Augustine, Florida. Two of them are actually Christmas icons, because most of my photos of the Old City have been taken during holiday visits, and some prominently feature the decorations around the town.

1. Please credit either [ profile] jordannamorgan or [ profile] wolfbane_icons.
2. Comments are expected if you take an icon, and also appreciated if you don't.
3. Do not alter the icons without permission, and do not hotlink.

Icon Subjects:

01-04: Assorted shots of the Castillo de San Marcos, a seventeenth-century Spanish fort.

05-06: The St. Augustine Lighthouse at night. (No, its light beam is not a manipulation on my part!)

07: A pizzeria occupying one of the historic houses near St. George Street. It had rained that day, and the wet street reflected the lights on the building as perfectly as a mirror.

08: St. George Street, the main hub of shops and eateries for tourists.

09: One of the marble statues for which the Bridge of Lions is named.

10: Okay, I confess--I actually shot this sailboat at Canaveral National Seashore. But I needed to round out the dozen. *g*

11: A lamppost near the Castillo, all dressed up for Christmas.

12. Another decorated lamppost, this time on St. George Street.

If you want to see or even purchase one of the photographs used in these icons, you can find those and many others at Chalidocean Photography. (It's not much, but the updating and improvement of that site is on my to-do list.)

Ah, I like things with sails even if they're not St. Augustine-bred. ;) These are lovely! I think the Castillo de San Marcos ones are my favorites - especially #2.

Ooh yes. We must indeed!

Hmm... I wonder if Amtrak goes to Orlando... I could go through the lovely 1920s train station in Fort Worth... *plots*

You're right! I tried to use their "route finder" and it shuttled me through Chicago and D.C. Hmph. So I looked at the route map myself, like I should've. :D I can go from here down to San Antonio, then along the Gulf Coast to Jacksonville and thence down to Orlando. It can happen!

These are all great -- but I gave a special "yay!" for #7! I love the way rain-washed streets reflect back the light. It's the film-noir romantic in me, I suppose :)

Wow they are really pretty, I especially like the first two, but love the colours and effects on all of them.

The effect with the boat is my favourite ...
