    Croci, crocuses or a chorus , whatever you call a group of this flower make me immediately think spring has arrived. These were taken before todays shocking redux of winter for the umpteenth time so far in 2024. The location must be kept confidential because A. it is very close to my walking options and I don’t want them endangered and B. some of us locals are trying to get this area protected.

      My favorite spring flower. There was an awesome patch in Confluence park that have been wiped out by people walking the field outside the park boundaries.

    This next one is better to shot at night.

    Bottom right corner of the Ed Drahanchuk mural, including the artist’s signature – thought it made for an interesting abstract photo. ISO 100, f/9, 1/100.

  11. Karen Sandra McDaniel says:

    Natural art taken at Beacon Hill Park in Victoria, BA where Spring has arrived in full force. Flowers and birds everywhere. Taken with my iPhone 13.

  12. Beth A Hetherington says:

    Near the intersection of Elbow Dr and 4 Street SW, there are stairs going from the bridge down to Elbow Park Island. The artists that designed the stairs are Wayne Garrett and Caitland Brown. They wanted to reference the transition from urban to nature references fish skeletons, ribs of a canoe and ripples on the water. Shot with my 18-55 mm lens at f/9, 1/500 sec, ISO 250

  13. Beth A Hetherington says:

    The best public art is accessible to all people like this tiny girl who liked sitting with two big bears. This was shot at f/4.5, 1/180 sec, ISO 200

  14. Doug Stewart says:

    Berlin is full of public art. The East Side Gallery is a preserved portion of the Berlin Wall that has been covered in wall murals, including this one that depicts the outpouring of people from East Berlin when the wall was breached on November 9, 1989.

    One of the hundreds of colourful houses in the Muslim Bo-Kaap area of Cape Town. All the houses had to be white when they were leased to slaves. When the slaves were eventually allowed to buy them, they painted them in bright colours to celebrate their freedom.

    This is statue is located in Red Deer across from City Hall. I liked the statue inside a statue. Hazel Eva Brathwaite was an inducted into the Agriculture Hall of Fame in 1978. She fought for equality and justice for women and family rights in the farming community. F4.5, 1/80 of sec, 100 ISO.

    • Debbie McCluskey says:

      I have no idea, why the picture above went sideways. Here is the original of the statue. The location of the statue is under a tree so two different lightening areas which I was not successful at balancing.
