Unusual - #AtoZChallenge #blogboost

I've been saving up these pictures taken in Sanford, Florida to feature on my "U" post for the #AtoZChallenge.  But then, yesterday, nature presented me (in my upstate New York home) with a most unusual day.

Winter has hung on her for what seems like forever.   But today, the temperature got up to 73 degrees F (22.8 Celsius) which wouldn't be any big deal - except we got snow almost every day for the last two weeks.  Of course, it has all melted, and the spring flowers are finally popping!

Anyway, back to Sanford.  In January, waiting for the Auto Train to bring us back north, we took advantage of a free shuttle to go downtown and explore for a bit. 

One of the downtown buildings was covered in mosaic.

I can not identify the building I took these pictures of, but I wonder if this holds a clue.  "Mr. Imagination".  I did a Google search and I wonder if this artist may have been involved.

I would love to know the story of these mosaics in Sanford.
Does anyone know more about this outside art?  I'd love to know.

  1. Alana,

    Mosaics are rather cool. Sometimes they form beautiful pictures and other times they're just unusual capturing an artists randomness or so it seems.

    I'm sorry for the problems you had leaving a comment on my blog yesterday while on your iPhone. Which browser are you using? Did you get an error like before?

    Thanks for leaving a message from your computer to let me know that you stopped by and had trouble. Have utterly beautiful day!

  5. I don't know anything about it - but I love that there are weird and wonderful, pretty things out there to intrigue you (I'm a little jealous because there are none near me!)

  6. Nope no idea but they are wonderful! Usually artists are keen to make their identity known so its strange this one is shy!

  7. Sorry- when I think of Sanford (beside the AutoTrain), only Tyrone's tragedy comes to mind.

  10. Those look fun. I hope it was a fun project for locals (and not some sort of graffiti).
