a walk in the park

Yesterday, to clear my mind, after the morning's flooding rains....three feet of water in front of my home, car flooded yet again...(ahem).....I decided to take a long walk in City Park.

I took the camera and a (n empty) backpack, hoping someone would mistake me for a German exchange student, or at least a tourist from Little Rock. It didn't happen, but I still had to take a few photos to keep the illusion up.

A fairly new sculpture. I remember watching the artist working on it last year or so. It's encrusted with all sorts of broken pottery shards.

That last snap is the money shot. Makes me want to have bar-b-que up at Twelve Oaks in my crinolines...

Those trees are gorgeous, but at night must be creepy & haunting I'm sure!

Such a gorgeous park. Those trees...those trees...

The new sculpture looks like a guillotine as interpreted by Dr. Bob.

Lovely pictures, Herr Jason. Vielen Dank.

You took beautiful photos. Love the one with the large limb framing the scene.

I've had my car flooded before...it's just gross.

Dammit. Ayem8y got here before me.

I was going to suggest you wear lederhosen.

I don't I knew before that you lived in New Orleans until I saw your pix here today. NO has such a unique style that to quite matches it anywhere in the world.

I haven't visit there in about 10 years; I'll have to go back soon.
