City Daily Photo Theme Day: Landmark


The biggest landmark in Tallahassee is the historic old Florida Capitol building. I took this picture of the dome just as the sun was setting behind it. The first day of the month is Theme Day in the City Daily Photo community. To see other interpretations of this theme from all over the world visit our Theme Day page here.

Happy Halloween


I took this picture at the airport a couple of weeks ago while I was waiting for my flight to depart. I think this guy's luck may have run out while waiting to win the lottery.

A black bird and a broom


They make a cute and simple Halloween decoration, don't you think? I took this picture inside one of the old shops in Havana while I was enjoying the Pumpkin Festival.

Rubbish Tuesday


I saw this old sewing machine at an indoor garage sale. I just love the color. Linking to Rubbish Tuesday.

Hot Dog Hat


One of the vendors at the Havana Pumpkin Festival. I couldn't resist taking this picture because of his hat.

Weekend Reflections


Every October I like to attend the annual Pumpkin Festival which is held in the small town of Havana (Florida, not Cuba) just a few miles north of Tallahassee. There are quite a few interesting shops and restaurants there and this shop is called The Wanderings. You can see a bounce house that was set up in the street in front reflected in the window.

SkyWatch Friday




The sky could not have been more perfect on the day I toured the Texas State Capitol in Austin last week. That is the Goddess of Liberty statue standing on top of the dome and is actually a replica placed there in 1986. The original 1888 Goddess of Liberty statue was taken down, restored and moved to the Bullock State History Museum. I'll probably be returning to local pictures this weekend.

Texas Longhorn and friends


This is another picture I took last week when I was visiting family in Austin, Texas. They live in one of the small towns just north of the city and this handsome fellow posing for me is one of their neighbors. That is a donkey in the pasture directly behind him. Believe it or not, that other animal in the middle on the far right and almost out of the picture is a zebra. You may have to click on the picture to enlarge it for a better look. My sister and I had stopped on the side of the road so I could get a picture, but the cow was so preoccupied with grazing that he would not look up. My sister decided to bust out with a loud "moo" and he looked up just as I snapped the picture. It was pretty funny, but I guess you had to be there. Linking this post to Good Fences.

signs, signs


I'm still showing pictures from my visit to Austin, Texas last week. The Texas Chili Parlor is located within walking distance of the state capitol building, which we had just finished touring when we stopped here for a late lunch. The food was fabulous and so was the atmosphere. I also bought one of their cool t-shirts. I liked their sign too, so I'm linking up with signs, signs.
