Jimi Hendrix


This mural is located on the outside wall of a local night club. The ladder was leaning up against it because there was some construction going on in the building when I took the photo. The mural is the work of Sarah Painter, a local artist and student at Florida State University majoring in studio art.

Clouds and pastries



Clouds gathering behind the Holy Mother of God Greek Orthodox Church. I took these photos when I was attending their annual Greek Festival a couple of weeks ago. As you can see from the second shot, I went a little overboard on the Greek pastries. They lasted several days in my refrigerator though and were all delicious, especially that Baklava Cheesecake in the lower right corner.

Grim reminder


It's always sad to see one of these "ghost bike" memorials near the road because it means someone was killed in a bicycle accident nearby. The memorial is meant to serve as a reminder to be careful and look out for bicyclists when you are driving your car.

Hot


This past summer my oldest grandson spotted this sign along the highway and thought it might make a funny photo for my blog. I had forgotten all about it until I was going through my pictures and saw it this week. We wondered about it for several weeks until a new one appeared in its place advertising a local air conditioning repair service. I didn't even notice the moon was in the shot until I posted it!

College golf



The Seminole Golf Course and Club is the home of the Florida State University men's and women's golf teams. The course also serves as a learning laboratory for the University's Professional Golf Management Program and the building in the second photo houses offices, classrooms, a clubhouse, pro shop and restaurant. The course is also open to the public.

Note to Lowell: I could not pass this golf course without taking these photos just for you!

Great Blue Heron


I saw this beautiful Great Blue Heron lurking at the edge of Lake Ella while I was on one of my afternoon walks.

Steeple


This steeple belongs to the oldest public building in Tallahassee in continuous use. The First Presbyterian Church is located downtown and the building dates back to 1838. Below you can see a better view of the entire front of the church. If you are interested the church's history you can find out more at this link. To see a historic photo of the church from the 1800's, go here.

Faux window


I'm not sure what the story is on this, but I like it. I took this photo several months ago. At the time, the building seemed to be empty. I only noticed it because it is across the street from one of my favorite restaurants.
