That is pretty varied, Lowell. We have painted cows, not horses, in West Hartford.

Some interesting looking signs. Fine collection of photos.

Good shots; now I know a bit more about Ocala.... I would love to paint one of these horses or cows or pigs or whatever they give me.

Nice table, too hot for wine but I'll try cajun!

Love the painted horse!

Halcyon said...

Sorry to say, but from these shots it doesn't look like the town's "history" goes back very far. ;) But I do like the bright colors, they draw me in.

Who dat? Nice English 2 Harry's. I'm still trying to decipher that sign. Gosh, I'm hungry though.

Cool collection of images!

Sharon said...

What a great variety of shots but, I'm worried about that colorful horse. He doesn't have much room to run.

I love the old town areas! And they all seem to have the tattoo parlors. This is a pretty cool set of pictures.

I like the painted horse.
Very nice series, Lowell.

We had painted Moose several years ago and there are still some around but they all lost their antlers almost immediately after being put out on the streets. Quite a variety of shots!

Lois said...

We have a Harry's here too and it's one of my favorite restaurants. I like the horse with the red nose!

The painted horse is my favorite, too. As for the 2003 Chardonnay, I lived in Sonoma County in 2003. There they had characters from the comic strip "Peanuts" that were painted by various artists and installed on the streets of Santa Rosa, where Charles Schultz lived as a generous patron for many years.

the gazebo looks to be the most historic bit in town!
