So, in part two of our visit to the Grounds for Sculpture we sat in the calming and serene water park...
Green, lush, like heaven
and I purposely didn't retouch or adjust any of these photos because some of them came out looking just like paintings.
I used a telephoto lens on this little guy...hand held...steady..I was amazed at the detail cause he was pretty far away.
Just in case you are wondering what camera I used...let me begin by saying....I have always been a huge SONY lover and have used many of their DSLRs with changeable lenses...BUT...I wanted something smaller, with a fixed (telephoto) lens for travel, so I bought The CANON SX50 at B&H Photo in NYC and I'm in LOVE !
This gorgeous sculpture garden is a 42-acre park and museum so we weren't able to cover the entire thing in our one day. There is still one whole side we have to go back to visit....and we plan to do that soon.
as I mentioned in yesterdays blog....this magnificent place was founded in 1992 by John Seward Johnson II.
His desire was to make contemporary sculpture accessible and offer people from all backgrounds the opportunity to become comfortable with contemporary art. Grounds For Sculpture was conceived as a place where audiences could experience sculpture in a familiar, accessible, and informal setting.
Here is more of his FUN....!
you can't help but LOVE the whimsy of these statues and how you can interact with any of them as the spirit moves you...
and so ends our wonderful day...
Now...I must take another minute to CONGRATULATE our oldest grandchild Michael (18) on his HS graduation and acceptance to U of CONN.
Great party at his dads house (our son Marc)!
We adore Michael..he is funny and bright (and over 6 feet tall !!!) and everyone loves him. We are exceptionally proud of him !
well...you know me...this wont be the last of some fun adventure...stay tuned !
