Lens Artists Photo Challenge #249: Art in the Park and Other Places

As always, I am hastily throwing a post together for lens artists as I have left it late…

What to show for art in public places? Let’s start with a slightly unsettling one from a decade ago, at the Hannah Pescher Sculpture garden:

Unsettling sculpture….

Now for a few from other gardens, mostly Wisley from a few years back:

This one, also seen at Wisley, has to be one of my favourites:

Now for a few random images:

Linked to lens artists at John’s here



  1. Great ones, I really enjoyed the favorite one , so pretty

  2. Wonderful finds Sue 🙂

  3. I really like that ‘unsettling’ one, and the last one from Wisley, your own favourite 🙂

  4. I particularly liked the ‘unsettling’ monumental head ,but also the linked half face portraits on the next to last bit of street art and, of course, the whimsical cat and bird sculpture on the sign for La Maison de Grand-Mère.

  5. I enjoy walking through gardens. I find it especially fun when they have an artist’s display that is not always there. A walk through a familiar place brings new things to see around every corner. Not many gardens provide that opportunity regularly, it seems.

  6. Great photos, great outdoor art. I too like the whimsical dancing person.

  7. I’ve seen several of these before, and it’s good to see them again. But you’re right, that first one IS unsettling.

  8. You always come up with a great selection for these challenges, Sue. Well done.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  9. I like most of these, but agree the first one is definitely unsettling. And that’s one very sad looking dog with boxing gloves!

  10. It can be absolutely anything, Sue, and often is! An eclectic mix.

  11. A nice selection, Sue. And great to see Lisbon at the end.

  12. A wonderful collection, Sue! That first one is truly unsettling. I quickly focussed on the little pig peeping through the shrubs.
