Old and New

SDP  5-13-11

Better late than never with today's post. I hope the Blogger folks get everything fixed soon -- and SDP returns whole (yesterday's post is MIA).

There's a lot going on in this photo of downtown Sarasota, so let's begin with the building across the street. Although it's owned by the city, it's still referred to as the Federal Building. It opened as a U.S. Post Office in 1936 with a construction budget of.... **drum roll**.... $175,000. You probably can't tell from this photo, but the architecture is wonderful. Hop across Ringling Boulevard and you're under a portion of Ringling Square. While the architectural design is similar to the Federal Building, Ringling Square opened in...2006. Pretty neat! So neat, you might want to do a little happy dance like these two figures. This is a public art piece called "Standing Bow" by Matthew Mattox. Sarasota has an acitve public art program which requires public art for new developments. And that concludes today's tour of downtown.

Don't think we're gonna get our posts back, but who knows!

I've always liked Sarasota...it's such a beautiful city. I think I've driven close to what your picturing today! Time for a return visit!

Ernie said...

Where is this? I think it's near the current post office in downtown, but I don't know that I've ever seen it, or payed attention to it...

I like the photo, I sometimes wish I could move some of the cars that interferes with my photography.

Beautiful building in a beautiful photographic frame. I was unable to post on the 12th (I generally post in the evening). The 11th's post stayed intact until about 9 this a.m. and then disappeared, only to return later this afternoon, so perhaps your post from yesterday will magically reappear too!

I like the dancing statues - very graceful.

Kate said...

A very joyful statue!

You can get your post back by hitting the publish button, it's probably still a draft or scheduled. The comments won't come back though.

This is delightful!
