Stairwell With A View

This is the view from the sixth floor stairwell of the new Sarasota Police headquarters, which overlooks Payne Park in downtown.  (To see a photo of the $44 million building when it was still under construction click here.)  Earlier this week, it opened with much fanfare including a community open house where everyone had the opportunity to walk all six floors --- and check out this wonderful view.  The fire truck and tent were set up in the park for another big event, which I'll tell you about in Friday's post.  (Oooh, the suspense!)

I wondered what this was going to be from the thumbnail. Is that the ocean straight ahead?

No, that was a squall line building. But, down the hallway (to the right in the photo), one can get a glimpse of Sarasota Bay.

I hope this will be the only time you're in there.

Looks like some ominous weather coming up!

That's a cool perspective. I like this shot. It's so much fun having your camera with you this time of year with the afternoon weather we get. My Friday post is the ones of the yellow sky we had last week. I am sitting on the edge of my seat for your Friday post! :D
