Basketweave Palm

An interesting find a Marie Selby Botanical Gardens in Sarasota.  I neglected to note the botanical name so I am calling it Basketweave Palm.  To check out the color version go to my 52 weeks with Carolyn blog, the link is on the top right.

Selby Public Library

The Selby Public Library was the first library in Sarasota County, Florida that was established in 1907.  Located on 1st Street in downtown Sarasota the building was designed by architect Eugene Aubry and constructed in 1998.  The large bottom heavy columns support and grace the outside of the building, providing large shaded porticos .



Big Cat

No photos with clouds this week!  I decided to bring you instead this Big Cat.  Several months ago my photography group made a trip to the Big Cat Habitat and Gulf Coast Sanctuary, located in Sarasota.  For over 30 years this family run Sanctuary provides a safe home to Tigers, Lions, Ligers, Zebras, Bears and numerous other animals.  Our group was fortunate to have a behind the scenes photo opportunity to see some animals up close and personal.  Only a chain link fence separated us from the animals while a trainer watched over them.  I caught this Tiger enjoying a dip in cool water on a hot humid Florida afternoon.



Contemporary House

About a month ago in my post Abrovitae you could see this house from a different view.  I don’t know the history of the house, who designed it or when but, with its white exterior and immense curved wall of glass squares, it provided me with some interesting photographic opportunities.  Once again, the clouds were amazing that day.
