Snapshots: Flowers at Ringling

The Ringling Museum of Art in Sarasota is a beautiful site filled with an amazing collection of art acquired by John and Mable Ringling. Also, there’s a lot of circus history and memorabilia.

There also happens to be a garden. Armed with my macro lens, I took the following pics. A good flower is a true thing of beauty. Intricate and infinite in line and color.

I guess I feel about flowers the way birders feel about birds.

Does that make me a … flower-er? God help me …

Snapshots: Christmas In Florida

For Christmas this year, my family rented a house on Anna Marie Island, off the coast of Sarasota.

It is a beautiful little island and well worth a visit.
