Street statues of the "Seven Virtues" are located on the traffic island of St Armands Circle. These were designed and created by Edward Pinto and dedicated in 2008 to John Ringling and others from the city.

Like those...your angle caught shadows just right to make the statuary look almost 3D.

Thank you l-fox. I got these in mid-day and the bright sun was directly on the statues. I had to walk around them a number of times to get the best angle for avoiding too much overexposure or underexposure. The statues are in a small park surrounded by a 2-lane rotary with exceptionally high traffic with six turnoffs, one to Longboat Key, one to Siesta Key, and one across the bay to downtown Sarasota!

I believe that would be Lido Key/Beach. Siesta Key is not accessible from St. Armand's Circle. Gary

It is Lido Beach, not Siesta Key that is in at St Armand's area.
