    If you are familiar with south Florida, you'd know that Boca Raton has a certain stigma... snobbs.

    Having a Boca zip code means that people will assume you are among the rich 'n famous. I live in the town bordering Boca Raton to the south.

    When people ask me about Boca, I have an anecdote to share:

    ... one night, after a movie in Boca, my date and I were walking along the street when we came upon a brand new red Ferrari convertable parked at the curb. It shined and glimmered. We stopped and as I was telling my date about Ferraris..... another Ferrari, just like the parked Ferrari, pulls along side! The big difference was that this Ferrari was all yellow in color. We stood there with jaws dropped as the driver of the yellow Ferrari stood on his seat and looked in to the red Ferrari as if it was a bug.

    It wasn't 5 seconds later that a third Ferrari, zooms up behind the yellow Ferrari! This Ferrari was red just like the Ferrari parked at the curb. The driver of the third Ferrari stood up on his seat and yelled to the driver of the yellow Ferrari, "See. I told you you should have gotten red!"

    Then, the two Ferraris, one yellow, and one red, zoomed off into the Boca night.

    I've been to Rome. I didn't see one Ferrari, yet alone 3 together on the street! Only in Boca Raton does this wonder occur.

    Here's the start of today's walkabout at Mizner Park in Boca Raton.

    Ted, I like picture #2, the one with the sculpture flanked by the park benches ...but I am a little disappointed that there isn't a Ferrari anywhere in that shot ;)

    The last photo seems to be showing a blue cast/reflection on the sculpture.
    The shadows are bluish too in the other shots.
    Nonetheless, very nice images.

    In photo #1 there's a large blue wall. Perhaps that is what's casting the blue reflections.
