Bok Tower, Florida



Many of my images are made while killing time before a flight out. This is one of those times. I was on my way back from Tampa to catch a plane in Orlando and had a couple of hours, so I took a detour through the Bok Tower and Gardens in Lake Wales, Florida.

Their website says this: Bok Tower Gardens has offered some of Florida’s most remarkable experiences to more than 23 million visitors since 1929. Through its historic landscape gardens, unique Singing Tower carillon and magnificent 1930s Mediterranean-style mansion, the Gardens offer unparalleled opportunities for artistic, cultural, personal and spiritual enrichment.

Turns out, I didn’t think any of the photos I captured of the tower did it justice. But I did fall in love with this massive tree and a reflecting pool of water. To me, this symbolized Florida.
