A snowbird shows photos from southwest Florida (Naples) and southwest Connecticut (Ridgefield) and New England and other places he goes.
nicely captured, jack.
I knew all those candid shots would land you in trouble!
Yesterday many bloggers asked what happened to the congregants of Congregation Ados Israel. I don't know, but my guess is that they moved to the suburbs and joined synagogues closer to their new homes.
That sign makes me want to run right past it and go sit in one of those chairs!!!:D
As it should be. The results of the legal issues are the most important aspect of those chambers. The blue color of the rug is terrific!
But it is elegant. That sign seems unnecessary...I mean no one wants to hear a judge say, "Please step forward and address the bench!"
It is a very nice room Jack.
Looks as stern as one would expect from such a place. Interesting shot!God bless you!Cezar
Certainly interesting to a fellow member of the bar. I'd describe it as elegant and warm rather than plain. I haven't been in the Missouri Supreme Court chambers since I was admitted to the bar eons ago.
I agree with Bob that it is elegant. The area in front of the bar is very spacious, perhaps to allow room for that big seal in the carpet. The expanse of horizontal space makes the bench seem closer to ground level, rather than being raised as high as I would expect for a Supreme Court chamber.
Oh my, I think this room is simply elegant. Very official looking but, with warmth and style. The color of the carpet just brightens the whole room and brings out all the other little touches of blue.
I think they're all a bit like that. The carpet is neat though! ;)
I would be standing very tall, straight and have excellent manners if ever I stood in this room.
When I first looked at your capture, I had to look twice -- for just a second the backs of the chairs looked like smiling faces! Jeez, I didn't think my sight had gotten that bad, but it was a fun moment. It is a great shot with or without "judge faces"! Enjoy your weekend, Jack!Sylvia
Do all they all have the same blue carpet? :)
Nicely documented Jack, even though the room is not too ornate, I bet that painting on the back wall would have cost a small fortune.
A scary place indeed - I hope to avoid ever appearing in such a place!
Beautiful shot. But "small and plain?" With a ceiling that high who needs cavernous? And the woodwork and artwork certainly takes care of "plain!" The small library would make any legal type happy, too. I'd guess no one feels they're slumming in a room like this.
Simple but elegant. I like the blue carpeting.
The word that comes to mind Jack is plush! But not overly ornate.
Love the painting in the background!
I feel the need to take off my shoes and run my feet across that lush blue carpet. tsk-tsk. So inappropriate for the Supreme Court! Re: sandhill cranes --- they're fairly common in the Sarasota area. They really like golf courses, so that makes sense where you've spotted them. In fact, golf balls injure many sandhill cranes. They're quite impressive looking, aren't they?!
That painting on the back wall looks anything but plain. What a great look at a room I hope never to see in person.
Simple and solemn at the same time!
I've had business before the court, so I can tell you that there is little plush or elegant about the chamber. It's very minimal except for the paintings. Not imposing or reverential, and not the least bit cozy or plush. As a litigant, not a lawyer, I didn't feel at all out of place. It's vibe is surprisingly informal, with a very business-like atmosphere. Real egalité, as the French might say. It seems to encourage participants to act accordingly.Oh, it was only procedural and we won (case reinstated). But they did slap around a very hostile Superior Court judge (schadenfreude?).
