Lens Artists Challenge – Surprise

This train car is an example of the type of transportation

the circus animals were in while traveling from state to state.

 

One of my granddaughter worked as office staff at the circus in Sarasota, Florida while attending college.

 She had complimentary tickets for family. We went with some of the grandkids.

It was our last visit to the circus. As much as it saddened me to see it close, I’m happy it did.

The animals weren’t always treated in the best way. PITA had a right to voice their dislike of the animal cruelty.

You can imagine my ‘Surprise’ to see this poor little monkey with a heavy, heavy chain around his neck.

Unacceptable!

You can imagine my ‘Surprise’ when I saw this man going past me with a snake on his shoulders.

Sarasota, Florida is where the John & Mabel Ringling Circus owners used to vacation during their summers.

There is a museum dedicated to the circus with miniatures on display.

Their home is a museum with extensive art and furniture. It’s a wonderful place to visit.

They were major contributors to the arts. They created a well-known art school.

 The circus has closed.
