Hi. I'm James Sweiderk (@jsarasota on Twitter and Instagram). I've spent my whole life here, enjoying the beach, running and cycling, taking my dogs to play in the bay, hanging at local parks. I literally have thousands of photos to share, including:
And that's why I've created this site. I want to show you my perspective of the Sarasota area, all the breathtaking views and all the fun you can have here.
You can see more of my photos using the Twitter and Instagram links above.
I'm not a professional photographer. Most of my pictures were taken with my smartphone (though I recently picked up a Canon G12 and a Panosonic DMC-GM1). Sometimes they include my family or dogs. They always include the REAL Sarasota.
See you at the beach,
