Even in busy metropolitan areas you can often find a little bit of nature tucked away, out of sight. These shots where taken outside of Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater, Florida. Although I’ve been there many times, I didn’t notice the cool pond beyond the parking area until today. Given the 10-foot alligator sunning himself a few feet from my car, maybe I should start paying more attention.

So, let’s try something different today. Kudos and big thumbs up to the first person to correctly identify this historic building. While the graffiti doesn’t help the look, this unassuming building played a HUGE roll in history and may have even affected your life. Name the building.

I enjoy checking out the local markets when I travel. They can say so much about a culture and the people.

I stopped to shoot this simple image because I liked the symmetry of the doors, bushes and such. I didn’t notice until I returned home that the house numbers ran right to left, which makes sense for how they were located on the street, but still looks a bit weird.
