LOOSESCREW GATOR © 1996Big Cypress Gallery
This guy is the resident gator of the pond in my backyard. Why is he called Loosescrew Gator? Well, when I bought the property in the middle of the Big Cypress National Preserve to build my gallery and home, a friend said I had to have a screw loose to build so far away from civilization. So, I called my property the Loosescrew Sanctuary…and this impressive creature became the Loosescrew Gator. Loosescrew Gator was taken with a Deardorff 8×10 camera on T-Max 100 film.
