Art in the Park.


Along with the animals, birds and plants Parc Phoenix is home to a display of sculpture and there are works of art dotted amongst the greenery many, unfortunately, without name tags. Some of you have already noticed the sculpture in the middle of the fountains that I posted here and, no, I don't know what it is either, but here's another one which I actually prefer. It's far more graceful and makes a pleasing frame for the water..

I like it too, but I like those huge trees in the background even more! :)

belle sculpture, qui se marie bien avec la fontaine.

I think that public art is very important, even if we don't recognize the subject and/or understand it. My only frustration is unlabelled pieces! Nice shot!

This is beautiful and you captured it just perfectly. The graceful "arm" draws the eye into the photograph. I like your park very much.

And look, you caught all the water droplets from the fountains. They look like bridal veils. maybe that's the bride's arm reaching for her veil.

This is wonderful, the delicate arm and those droplets. I msut have photographed The Arc In the Park about 20 times when we were there.

This really has good depth of field and strong 3-D effect to it.
