Grey Hair


I did not know my hair had gotten this gray. The stress from social media and seven years of recession has taken its toll.

NOT GUILTY!


United Cab got a toll violation from the State of Florida. Their cameras took a photo of the tag of a taxi not paying the toll, and sent it to the company. The low resolution image made it difficult to read the cab number and they thought it was me. Impossible. I never use the toll roads.

We are only talking $3.50. I went in to contest it, and sure enough, the tag number did not match mine. I am 378 and it was 338. I was off the hook. How bout that!

United Cab does not like getting these things from irresponsible drivers and charge a $25 handling fee. They are in the cab business, not the toll business. I was ready to pay. (Note money order.)


I was very glad it was not me. Just an oversight.

I want to state for the record United Cab has been very good to me over the years. Everyone from the owners to the back office has been beyond great. That is why I have stayed all these years.

Beautiful sunrise in the wilderness


I took this photo last September on Lake Hudson in the BWCA. It is on the Canadian/Minnesota border far away from any semblance of civilization. On this morning the ducks were stirring; the loons were calling; the frogs sang in a cocofony of delight. The growing embers of my campfire, combined with lake water, turned instant coffee in high-brow brew. This wilderness is wonderful. I cannot tell you how beautiful and peaceful it was. Unfortunately, I was not really there.

This image was taken behind the dumpster in the back lot of Publix supermarket in New Tampa this morning. No frogs; no loons; But the silence was puncuated with the sound of hundreds of cars just off my left going to work. What a drag.

TIMMY PHOTO TIP: you don't have to travel to exotic locals to get good image's. However, I really wish I had been in northern Minnesota

Clearwater Beach booming


The crowds are thick and there are signs of expansion. Many of the mom and pop properties were torn down to make way for condos. This happened in 2006, just before the economic collapse. Well shazam. That kind of sucked

In Clearwater today you could see tower cranes in the distance. That is something I have not seen in years. Must mean the economic is recovering.

Gone swimming


Trying to develop regular exercise habits is difficult. My favorite exercise of long distance hiking is sort of hard in the summer heat and humidity. The pool now seems like the place to be. As Arnold said, you wear a spedo, get a tan, and everyone is almost naked. Sounds like fun

The baglady


This is really sad. I have seen this lady for years pushing this cart down the street, loaded with stuff. She is obviously mentally ill. You would think someone could help her. Maybe the cops could Baker act her, and get her help. On this issue, they say its a liberty issue and she can do what she wants. Funny, on other issues the cops are all up in our business. Sad. Very sad.

Smell the roses


I had a run way out to the Turkey Creek area. Instead of dead heading back, I went to a nice park for a couple hours. As Tony Soprano said "sometimes you just got to smell the gorilla shit."

This boardwalk is next to a camping area, and goes our to a wilderness preserve. There is an observation tower which gives a spectacular view of the former phosphate mine. Unfortunately, the lakes out here are man made.


There was a storm brewing in the distance and I could hear thunder. So I cut the trip short. I got back to the car in the nick of time as the bottom of the bucket opened up.



It has been raining so much in central Florida that we have already reached the annual average for rainfall and we ate not even in the rainy season yet. Wait until a hurricane comes around. Yikes!

Arizona Shootout


Dave is moving the operations to Tuscan away from the more vista areas around phoenix. The nudist camp in the south allows more privacy, and scenes that ate not like Florida. For the first time since 2007 I am planning for the November event. My life may finally be back online. Now, that would be cool.

Xzanthia has moved away

Xzanthia
I found this on an old TBT. If you remember back in 2007, I had the honor of shooting Xzanthia in an art nude shoot. The recession hit and I could not keep up my craft. She was a fantastic model and artist and held events at her fathers nudist resort. I now know now she has moved onto other things. I wish her well. Her and her father were top notch.
"Through festivals, parties and an artists’-colony sense of camaraderie, the Pasco County performance artist created an enclave of creativity and diversity in Tampa Bay at the Riverboat Nudist Colony in Land O’Lakes. Her work with the band Impotent Sea Snakes, herXBash Music Festival and her legendary foam partieshave made her a fixture of Tampa Bay’s underground art scene.
But after years spent working to connect and create a community, she has decided to leave. Citing a desire to de-complicate her life and focus on her art, XZanthia is moving away. She remains positive about the Tampa Bay artistic community, but says she just “needs a break from the massive workload.” “Every city has its ups and downs, strengths and weaknesses ,” XZanthia said. “We have the talent and resources, but we need more structure and focus.” XZanthia has been a bridge between the diverse communities of Tampa Bay. Artists, clubgoers, Goths, vampires, naturists, burners and creatives of all stripes saw her as a common friend who made the Riverboat Nudist Club a safe mingling spot for all. What she has helped build will continue in her absence. The photo events and model connection events will go on; the resort will continue to be run by her father. The XBash music festival is scheduled again for July, and next month a nude Rocky Horror Picture Show starts at the resort. True to her spirit, XZanthia has no firm plan for her destination but instead will travel till she finds the place that needs her. She said she “could be happy living in the woods with a teepee and moccasins without a care in the world.” -- Eric Sturm, tbt*"

Tampa Taxi Shots new location


I have the URL Tampa Taxi Shots and I have shifted resources there. To promote my brand Tim Fasano, that domain is attached here. My Sasquatch Evidence blog is taking off and almost 1,000 views a day. The internet has been the most successful thing I have ever done. Check out my sites.

Survivorman Bigfoot episode


I am home watching Les Stroud and Tod Standing searching for Bigfoot. Stroud would make an awesome footer and it seems they have gone to lengths to make sure Standing does not upstage the star. I like this episode and has more pace then the Finding Bigfoot show. Todd seems like a cool dude.

Tampa from behind the wheel of a taxi cab

I shot this video a couple years ago when my computer was functional. I really need to get a new one. Anyway, I hope you like this. I did put some work into it.

Downtown Tampa


A different vantage point to shoot downtown Tampa. This is on Harbor Island on a beautiful morning. The next photo has the taxi in it.


I kind of like this one. It shows taxi cabs get all over town.
