This week’s Journeys by Johnbo challenge features a focus on the arts. Public art in all its forms and locations. Whether in a park or a parking lot, an outdoor theater, or a street corner, art in public places can be found in communities worldwide.
Art Found in a Park Setting
Art representing place
One day this sculpture appeared on the corner of Eastern and Marconi. I went home, grabbed my camera, and headed back. A while later it was gone.
A couple of years later, this rooster appeared at this remodeled shopping center. So far, this rooster has found its home in Fair Oaks.
Animals in Public Art
Public Art that enhances its surroundings
Found this creative exhibit of public art in South Sacramento in a vacant lot.
Have I shown you something that you yourself have seen? Are there similar works of public art where you are? There is always surprises to see! Enjoy.
Patti from Pilot Fish creates this week’s Lens-Artist Challenge. “In this challenge, we’re exploring different types of still life images, not only the traditional “created” arrangement, but also “found” still life scenes–which you might discover in store windows, in a garden or museum, or just about anywhere.”
Benches and their surroundings
Hats in still-life
Antique kitchen settings
I love to go to farmer’s markets. I admire store-front displays. Sometimes I will arrange the food for a photograph.
Parts of sculptures
These are some still-life settings that I created.
As you can tell, I love to use my camera to focus on things around me. Luckily, I use my left eye to focus. The left eye still just has dry macular degeneration. My right eye has wet macular degeneration and all is a swirly blur. Till next time, enjoy these still-life images and let me know which one catches your eye!
