An old house on the outskirts of Ybor City in Tampa, Florida. How or why this building is still standing is a tough question to answer. Someone thinks it is important. A sign on the front porch announces that security cameras are in use.
Fort Zachary Taylor is Florida's southernmost state park. It was built in the mid 1800's as part of a series of forts designed to protect the southern coastline of the United States and played an important part in the US Civil war and the Spanish-American war. Located in the middle of an operating military base, it is undergoing restoration work. In this photo the flag is shown at half mast on the parade ground.
