My Town Friday Shoot Out - Textures & Yard Objects

Last week, I was out of town for My Town Shoot Out and while looking for this week's I managed to find a great way to combine the two themes. Last week's theme, texture, was suggested by Linda, while this week's theme of yard objects was suggested by NoeNoe Girl.

These pictures were taken in Perrysburg, OH while we were on our travels for vacation. This is a public park area right on the Maumee River, where the Perrysburg Area Arts Council has created a Sculpture Exhibit. This is not all of the art, but the favorites of myself and my 6 year old who, as you can see in one of the pictures, accompanied me on this adventure.

Click each photo to enlarge if you wish.













Next week's theme is reflections, chosen by Audrey. I'm looking forward to see what I can catch of Roseville, MI & the Detroit Area. Thank you for stopping by!!

What fantastic pictures. The wood Whale's tail was just stunning. (Ha, I just realized Audrey and Sarah already used the word stunning - so much for being creative).

Tremendous post. The first picture of the whale tail was my favorite. I just returned from Alaska. We saw plenty of whales. They always amaze me.
