Photographer's Note

Mallory Square sunset in three photos .

According to Wikipedia Mallory Square is a plaza located in the city of Key West, on the waterfront in historic Old Town. It is located just west of the northern end of Duval Street, facing the Gulf of Mexico. It runs the entire length of Wall Street. Adjacent to the square are the Key West Shipwreck Historeum Museum and the Old Post Office and Customshouse (Key West, Florida).

It is the location of the "Sunset Celebration", which is considered one of the main tourist attractions of the city. The "Sunset Celebration" involves hundreds of tourists who arrive each night to view the sunset. The celebration includes arts and crafts exhibitors, street performers and food carts. It begins two hours before sunset, every day of the year.

I am here to tell you it is a hoot. The performers are unabashed and not the least bit ashamed of browbeating the tourists for bigger tips for the corniest of street theater. As listed above the sunset celebration is of some note and the setting sun is truly wonderful though I know here on TE some think there are already too many shots of it...

Anyway this is part of the Key West experience and should happen to be in this drinking town with a fishing problem you owe it to yourself to go see the circus.
