“I fly every chance I get and every chance the weather gives me the opportunity. The more I flew around here the more I started noticing the striking images from the water.

George Kirvin Floyd owns and operates the Apalachicola Maritime Museum, for which Burgher is a volunteer on boating trips up the Apalachicola River and floodplain.

“His family goes way back in Franklin County and owns quite a bit of shoreline in Apalachicola and the area,” Burgher said of Floyd. “He established that museum to maintain that heritage.”

One day Floyd and Burgher were perusing Burgher’s work and talked about Burgher’s idea for a book when Floyd offered a proposition.

Floyd would ensure the book was published if the museum could be the beneficiary of the profits.

“The book will be on photographic paper and have a nice layout,” Burgher said. “The book is done but probably won’t be printed until sometime next year, probably in time for Christmas.
