Off topic: When people hear that we’re in Florida, they almost inevitably assume that we’re in South Florida (e.g. Miami). We’re actually in Tampa Bay (Clearwater), which is a completely different place. Set on the Gulf of Mexio, it’s a charming area, which doesn’t get nearly as hot as our southern neighbor and even has mildly chilly winters—so north-easterners don’t have to throw out their sweater collection.

We often relocate people from other parts of the country to work for Sunbelt, and one such hire was Robert LaFollette, our Creative Director. He set up a blog which details his new life down here, but most stunning is his collection of photographs. Check out his blog at here and his photography website here (not all of the pics are from Tampa–many are from his home state of Ohio and other places).
