CJ Groth Photography - Key West
This is a link to new photography I have done in the past few weeks.  Some photos are from Key West, others from "up north" - autumn scenes in Connecticut and New York.  Thanks, everyone.

Key West's Royal Poinciana Trees are in bloom!

Ok, I'm no botanist, but I love these trees!  (Of course, I don't have to sweep up after them.) The Royal Poincianas are coming into full bloom just now all over the island of Key West and probably beyond (but I haven't been off "the rock" for awhile.)   These are a variety of Key West photos I have taken over time which include this gorgeous flame tree.

Thoughts on kindness

This post has nothing to do with photos, but everything to do with humanity. 

Very early this morning, while still in my nightgown, I heard voices outside.  My view was somewhat blocked by foliage, but I could see a black guy on a moped talking to someone who appeared to be sitting on the sidewalk.  My immediate thoughts:  1.  Drug deal.  2.  Drunk guy on sidewalk.  3.  Moped or bicycle accident.

Now, I'm not sure why the man was on the sidewalk.  But I watched as the guy on the moped talked very sweetly and calmly to the man on the sidewalk.  Then, he spent considerable time helping him get up and seeing him on his way.  The moped guy was so kind and caring in his manner, so patient with the other man, it was beautiful and inspirational for me.  Just wanted to say that.  CJ

Another new Key West Photo ... bicycle and bougainvillea

This photo is a wide view of one of the bicycles featured in my last blog post.  The house in the background used to be somewhat derelict and now seems beautifully restored.  This was an overcast day giving me nice even light with very few shadows, which is what I was looking for.

I love how the yellow and red in the bicycle picks up the colors of the house and bougainvillea.  If you want to see some more of my new photo pairings, go to my website at and choose "CJ's Photo Pairings" section.

Beautiful sunset in the Keys at the Wild Bird Sanctuary in Tavernier

I posted these four companion photos on Facebook and got some great response.  Here is the link to the whole portfolio on Facebook which I am calling "New Photo Pairings".  These are the most recent images.  This is my first time posting photos here, so forgive me if they don't sort out properly.

I'm having fun with new "photo pairings"

For the past week or two I've been posting "photo pairs" on Facebook (look under Connie J. Groth).  I've had a lot of fun working on them as I've given myself the freedom to just post anything that strikes my fancy.   I think this link should take you right to the photo album:

If I ever figure out how to post photos here I'll do that.  Don't forget my photos are available at Guild Hall Gallery, 614 Duval St. and online at
