Really enjoy your photos Lois. Been reading some of your other posts. Found some restaurants in Tallahassee hubby and I want to go to next time we're up there.

He is colourful indeed, I didn't understand exactly what the Center is standing for.

Kind of a funny shot.

Yes, I love the colors! My guess is the Shriners are compassionate to children (?). I'm basing that on the statue but maybe it has a different meaning.

I have read that the Romans and Greeks actually painted their statues in very bright colors...

But what building is it exactly, some kind of cult?

I like it. Eye catching and different.

His arm is going to get real tired after holding that girl for a decade or two . . .

I don't know why but this statue freaks me out.

Nice nostalgic photo, Lois. That seems to be a very tall statue.
