Good shot Jack. I like the angle and the reflection in the window.

Well done! I like symmetry of this shot -- and the low angle.

As a child I loved stories of explorers; guess it was the beginning of wanderlust.

Lois said...

The county I live in was named for him. Nice reflections!

Nice reflection Jack!

there's a street in atlanta named after him. and i've drank from the fountain of youth at the ponce de leon park! can't you tell?!

Nicely composed. Every bank, even First Seventh Fifth Ninth Bank, needs a statue of good ol' Ponce! But I don't think he made it all the way down to Naples. :)

Your banks are much more welcoming than ours !

Sylvia K said...

I have to agree with Malyss, your banks are definitely more welcoming than ours here in Portland -- they're all BLAH and duller than cat poop! Hope you have a great weekend!! Enjoy!!

I always love to see palm trees, Jack! Cool reflection.

I wonder if ponce means the same there as it does here :) I like your perfectly placed palm tree reflections Jack!

When I was a little kid, I used to just love saying "Ponce de Leon". It just seemed like such and exotic name.

That's one of my favourites now.

The reflections of the palm trees make a perfect setting.

Kay said...

Nice reflections. And I suppose Ole Ponce could be considered a "First Citizen," couldn't he?

That is quite the snazzy pair of boots her is wearing.
