His Unique technique is a breath of fresh air in a tourist... More > town overrun by plain-Jane postcards, dripping with "wish you were here" sentiment. A champion of a genre known as street photography, he is a fine artist who finds humor, and beauty, and wonder during his wanderings amongst the city's ever-present horse carriages, pedi-cabs and tourist trollies. When given a rainstorm, he makes a masterpiece by pointing his lens towards a puddle. Under his care, a storefront window glare becomes a crafty eye-catching collage. This guy is having too much fun, and it shows in these pages. Charlie’s images are slice-of-life stories, told from the point of view of a tour guide that is part professor, court jester and confessor. The streets of St. Augustine are filled with poetry and Cawley gives us an eyeful of verse in this well-crafted collection.< Less

More > career as the bar became a full time writer. He published volumes of poetry, mainly of a satirical and humorous nature that have seldom been out of print.
