My name is Leigh Wax. I'm a Nature and Wildlife Photographer residing in the small village of Windsor, Florida, near Gainesville.
My interest in capturing the natural beauty and wonder of the area was inspired by the writings of Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings who's original homestead in the near-by town of Cross Creek, remains much as she left it.
When relocating from "the North" to Florida, Marjorie was so captivated by the raw splendor of her new surroundings, that she studied the features, habits, and sounds of the wild creatures, the shapes, colors and hues of the seasonal wild flowers; and with her gift of expression, “painted” “word pictures” of them, woven throughout her many tales of the area. Sadly,much of the wild and natural Florida that she was witness to is rapidly "giving way" to the impact of increasing human population
As an Interpretative Volunteer for the Florida Park Service, I make frequent visits, camera in hand, to nearby, and surrounding area parks which, thankfully, strive to preserve the original beauty and diversity of Florida's by-gone days.
I strive to capture images of places and things in time, that reflect the spirit of Marjorie's Cross Creek experience.
