Dave McFarlane moved from North Dakota to Fort Myers Florida in 2011. Although I have been taking photos for the past 50 years, it was not until I retired in 2015 and connected with the Fort Myers camera Club that I began to actually learn the various aspects of artistic photography. I enjoy photographing local area wild life, landscapes and street scenes. Travel photography has become a passion where I try and make local scenes, people and activities come alive through photos capturing the colors and drama in each scene.
