  1. * * * These three photos are just inside the County Courthouse - taken while I was on jury duty just a few days ago. This is the main 'central courtroom' where we all convene to see what trial [if any] we will have to sit on as a juror.

    Note: The Texas Longhorns!

  3. Woah - how original for a courthouse! I would've never guessed. I get a feeling of freedom....but, w8. You were there to sit on a jury. Not much choice in that matter! Happy WW and thx for your visit. p.s. love the little bugs *giggling*

  5. Oooh, beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing.

    And thanks for your help with my blog roll. You're not stalking me! LOL! I clicked on your link to add you to my Google Reader - nothing. Then I tried following your latest suggestion to add you to my blog list, and since you’re not in my Goggle Reader, I couldn’t add you that way, either.

    And btw: I don’t use Google Reader. I have an account because I treid it once. But this new Blogger feature works really well for me. Well, except that I can’t get YOUR site added!

    Computers: grrrr. Or perhaps I should put it this way… my lack of computer skill: grrrr.

    Nah – I like being mad at the computer better! ;-)

  6. Those are such interesting shots. I also never would have guessed it was a courthouse. They are all great but I particularly love how you caught the reflection of the flag in the second shot where you zoomed in on the birds. Very cool.

  11. How many Cadillacs had to die to produce that last sculpture?

    Seriously though, it's a very striking series. And at least they give you something nice to look at while you're waiting. Nothing like the drab all-business look of the Wake Co. (NC) courthouse.

  12. Our local courthouse has no interesting decor like yours does! lol I just love the Texas Longhorns, how awesome it is!! I'm really glad that you weren't called in to serve, much rather have you blogging! hehe xoxo

  19. Hey Anni, I like your court house pictures. I guess the pigeons can come in (or are they gulls?). I like the long horn skulls too, I don't remember any with the horns on or put on.
    I have a regular cow skull.
    Happy WW! You might want to check out our new-to-us poodle dog, Katrin. I think she is a keeper. Anyway, we have to keep her, she was willed to us.

    BTW, I grew up on a farm outside podunk Nebraska towns, Tekamah and Herman. :-)

  37. that's an airy courtroom! with sunlight steaming through the skylight, i think it helps psychologically prepare the jurors for their task... and the bulls are aptly named --- longhorns!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Ohhhhhhh! I just got a picture of a big flag like that the other night too! When we were at Mortons! I love that - especially with the birds... very pretty!

  44. You must have some courthouse. I was thinking that it was inside of a big shopping mall. Those Texas Longhorns are neat.

    ReplyDelete
  45. I think the horns would look good in my downstairs powder room.

    ReplyDelete
  46. Wonderful photos ... and marvelous reminder to take my camera with me when I go somewhere the way I did once upon a time ... years ago.
    Hugs and blessings,

    ReplyDelete
  47. These are lovely shots. I love the long-horns. They are very Georgia O'Keefe looking. Hope jury duty was interesting. Long time since I last served, but I always found the process fascinating and inspiring in a frustrating and annoying kind of way.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Great shots... way to take advantage of being on jury duty!

    Hope you will stop by if you get a chance!
