Weekend Reflections

 
Posted by Picasa


The entrance to the Florida State University College of Medicine. The sky is reflected in the windows above the entrance. After I took this picture, I did a little research on the outdoor terrazzo murals you see by the entrance and found out that they were done by internationally renowned artist Steven Weitzman using his own revolutionary colored concrete process. You can read more details about these stunning murals here. There are actually three murals on that wall, portraits of historic doctors specific to Florida: Hippocrates of Cos, Elizabeth Blackwell and John Gorrie. I was so busy (and overheated!) the day I took this picture that I failed to get a good shot of these murals, so I promise I will go back and get better pictures for a future blog post. Meanwhile, you can click on the picture and enlarge it to get a better view of the murals and the reflections. To see more reflections from around the world, go visit James at Weekend Reflections.

I like the blue sky and clouds in the reflection of the upper windows. A hot day for you!

The murals are very interesting - so vibrant!

Very stately entrance. I like the geese image too. I saw three wild turkeys walking across the street today as I was leaving my mom's house. I was too tired to think let alone stop and shoot the critters.
