I really don't "do" scenery pictures but I'll share a few of my Tampa pictures:

The old Tampa Bay Center back in 2002.

The Sulphur Springs tower probably around 2001.

The Woolworth building in Downtown.

Many more where these came from!

Alright then.

Old 28th Street Drive-in, St. Pete

Clearwater Mall, 2002

Mustang Drive-in, Pinellas Park. ~2001
http://i32.photobucket.com/albums/d3/ferret111/Mustang/mustang5.jpg (broken link)

Kress Building. Franklin St, Tampa. 2007.


Cuscaden Pool. 15th St, Tampa. 2007.


Finally, another Tampa Bay Center picture with the semi-iconic entryway. Tampa, 2001.


As you can probably tell, I like to take pictures of places normally considered "boring." But hey, they become semi-historic when the places are demolished!

That store closed in 1998 with the whole chain. It just sat abandoned and with the signage until they tore it down in 2002-03.
