The Ringling Museum, located on what was the estate of John and Mable Ringling in Sarasota, Florida, contains many famous works of art. The museum building is in the shape of a “U” allowing for a lovely courtyard inside that “U”. Within this courtyard, there are many statues some of which were acquired by John Ringling as he traveled the world searching for circus acts. This particular statue depicts a lively team of stallions pulling a chariot reminiscent of the ancient Roman chariots. The wheel is quite detailed and fits nicely into a finely detailed statue.

It really seems as though two pictures are needed to explain this theme!

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
