I was drawn by the composition but could only shoot it through window screen, which added diffusion and a subtitle texture. Something a little different.

John's pool

No, not mine... John Ringling's pool.

It is located on the grounds of the Ringling Museum and near his former mansion, Ca' d'Zan.

The pool was originally deep enough for swimming but was recently restored but at a shallow depth for safety of the visiting public.

Rubens at the Ringling

One of the highlights of the Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota Florida is several large (huge?) paintings by the Flemish artist Peter Paul Rubens. This canvas it titled The Triumph of Divine Love.

The museum was a gift to the state of Florida from the man famous for his circus, John Ringling. Today the art collection is made up of over 28,000 items covering a wide variety of periods and styles, and well worth a day-long visit.

Scenes from a mall

Another (nearly) dead mall. The only thing open in this wing is the vending machine. Sad, but things change.
