Sarasota's Ringmaster

You'll see the name 'Ringling' all over Sarasota.  The Ringling Museum, Ringling College of Art & Design, Ringling Bridge, and Ringling Boulevard to name a few.  John Ringling, and his wife Mable, spent their winters in Sarasota after he made his fortune in the circus business.  This is a statue of John Ringling on St. Armands Key, which he used to own.

I never knew that! I love the composition you chose here.

I'm not sure how I'd personally feel if somebody made a bust or sculpture of me. But since he was quite a prominent figure, I suppose it's ok to have something to remember him by.

Have a great weekend!

Many thanks for visiting Norwich Daily Photo and leaving your comment. Come visit again tomorrow!
