Rosemary Court

I used to pick up organic veggies here.  And, every time I stepped foot on those red bricks and walked through that rusty wrought iron fence I thought, "I need to bring my camera here."  Well, at last I did! This is Rosemary Court within the Rosemary District in Sarasota.  It's a somewhat up and coming area with an eclectic mix of boutiques, shops and houses.  This area is also where Overtown, the first all-black residential area in Sarasota, was developed in 1886.

Ooh, very mysterious photo. Anxious to see what there is to see through the open gate.

As a child my father used to take me to get my haircut in the Rosemary district and Clarence Carter appearing to sing his hit "stroking" at the club where a police substation now sits.

I like this composition. I bet you had plenty to shoot in here.

Interesting tidbit, Lark. The sunlight was working against me the day I was shooting there. But, I shall return! Stay tuned.

It reminds me of a secret garden! Very pretty.
