When we were on our road trip up north a few weeks ago, we drove through McCloud, a small town that sits right up against the river. I guess someone that really appreciates the gifts of fish that the river gives decided to put a sculpture of a fish in their front yard. It kind of looks like it is upside-down to me, but then again, I don't fish so I wouldn't know right-side-up or upside-down. I just know that I saw it, stopped the car, and shot the photo. I really couldn't even tell you what "kind" of fish this is...trout, salmon? Someone out there probably knows the anatomy of a fish and the variety that it is. Me: I just know that it was a great sculpture and I was happy that I took a detour off Interstate 5 and happened upon it.

When I worked for the County one summer I always took my camera with me because I found so many things out there that people did and unless I had walked up to their yard or driven past their house, I would never have seen any of it.

Here are some of the photos I took of yard art I found out and about that summer. I hope that you enjoy them. (I have even been known to mail the photo back to the owner so that they know how much I appreciated the gift of their art).I think it is important to always carry your camera with you. I kind of feel like I can't leave home without it now because just when I do, I miss a great opportunity.

Did you know that Travelled can be spelled either this way or Traveled? Hmmmm.....I guess it is just one of those words like Gray or Grey. Both are correct. You live and learn!

  1. I enjoyed your sculpture photo collection. I love what people come up with for their homes and gardens too.
