Photos from Florida's Capital City (and occasionally a few from other interesting places I have been fortunate enough to visit in my travels!)

Awnings on the Old Capitol
Here is another view of the old Florida Capitol from a different angle. You can see the dome on the top through the tree. You can also barely see the newer 20 story modern Capitol building peeking over the old one in the upper left corner of the picture. The red and white awnings on the windows have generated much debate over the years. Some people like them and some people hate them. I didn't like them at all at first, but now I think I am just used to them. What do you think?

First of all I could not for the life of me remember the word awning the other day! You already know they are not my favorite, I do understand trying to make it look like it did a long time ago. I love the inside and miss the cannons out front. I posted my daughers field trip last year.
peppermint awnings! I am glad you are enjoying the cactus on my site. thanks for your comments!
I think they are perfect for that old building. Many original old awnings were done with stripped canvas. Great photo, Lois.
Hi Lois, I am hoping you will accept a 'Nice Matters Award' from me over at my blog. You always do so many kind and caring things for the world around you. I just wanted to say 'Thank You' for making a difference.
Be Well, Be Happy... Pam
I like this angle, Lois. And I think I could begin to like those awnings a lot.
I'm not ready to say "Awesome awnings" yet, but maybe some day.
Well maintained and clean as well as outside the building. Greetings.
I like the awnings, but they do seem out of place on a Capitol building.
I don't care for the striped awnings but if I recall correctly, they were chosen because that's what the capitol had originally. Sometimes historical preservation could stand a little tweaking...
hello Dear Lois!
Lovely awnings on the windows!
The tree is huge!Beautiful!
I think the major in your city is doing well.The city is so nice!
When I think of Florida architecture, this is exactly what comes to mine. One day I will visit!
