Thanks to Vicki Parker, Kathy Heid, and approval from Kim Krystopa, Stone Creek Photos is back for the community to reminisce and enjoy.
The original website, with its 200 plus pages, has been consolidated down to a few pages, but still offers nearly all of the original content taken from 2006-2013. I am no longer physically located at Stone Creek, so the legacy of this website is now completely in the hands of the residents. Everyone is welcome to share their photos taken within the community or in the Ocala area. Please attach your photos to an email with the date taken and a brief description (optional) directly to me, Tim Jacques (firstname.lastname@example.org) and they will be posted on the website.
Additionally, the Stone Creek Photos Wordpress blog remains active and you are most welcome to send me posts for publishing or if you like, request to be added as an author to the blog.

Former Stone Creek resident Tim Jacques introduced the Stone Creek Photos website in 2009. During its active period, the website grew to a multi-page archive of over 50,000 photos taken within the community as well as in and around the city of Ocala, Florida. Initially, photos of pets were the focal point but within a few months, many other categories were introduced to include albums featuring Stone Creek Birds, Cattle, Critters and many other visually interesting subjects. Soon after the website went active, the Stone Creek Photos Wordpress Blog was created to coincide with its namesake in order to add occasional narratives to noteworthy photos and give visitors an opportunity to make comments. Unfortunately, Tim and his wife Sue moved away from Ocala in July 2013 which sadly meant the website would be and has since been closed.
On a happier note though, even though the Stone Creek Photos blog’s visits have dwindled to a trickle, the blog remains active. Not wanting these memories to be forgotten, and prompted by an inspiration to keep those many memories alive, on a daily basis, the site will feature a single photo with the hopes that someone’s memory will be nudged and surfaced with a smile and a fond remembrance.
