About FNP

Florida Native Photography is the work of Ronald Broome, a 5th generation Floridian. The focus is on the old towns and structures, Florida landscapes, and other remnants of Old Florida. I also include images of the native wildlife that is facing an ever increasing loss of habitat.

Summerfield Florida sits directly on US Highway 301 and was a thriving town until I-75 bypassed it.  There are a number of large homes, churches and schools sitting abandoned near the heart of the town.  It must have been a magnificent little town in it's day but the passing years are leaving their marks.

This amazing monument is located in Westview Cemetery in Palatka Florida.  Along with the identity and birth/death dates is the inscription "Mother".  It is one of the prettiest monuments I've ever seen.
