I usually run with a theme. A couple of weeks ago someone asked whether my city has a lot of public art or whether I sought it out. The answer is both. While I much prefer more natural surroundings I am grateful that my city has a lot of public art. I don't like all of it, I don't understand all of it, but I am grateful that it is there. I think it reduces the impersonal air that so many cities have, and adds colour and life.
As I so often say, come walk with me. Other than the early photos (which were taken on my way in) all of these were taken within a couple of blocks close to my volunteer work. I didn't photograph all the art in those few blocks either.
The merry go round has also been there for a very long time. Even on a chilly day there were people riding it.
