Cee and Marsha’s Public Art Photo Challenge is in its third week, I think. This week is Marsha’s turn, and I linked to that. If you haven’t seen other contributions, click on the link and see some awesome petroglyphs!
Fire hydrants are a good place for public art – they are necessary and they are always there. People walk by them every day and don’t look at them, but sometimes it is worth stopping!
This photo was not shot nor edited black & white. The trees and clouds actually looked like this on a spring day in northern Wisconsin.

Some animals are the color they are to blend in with their environment, such as hyraxes who hide among the rocks where they live, mongoose who inhabit giant anthills, and even a hippo with just its eyes & ears above the water. (All photos taken in Tanzania.)
There is a lovely park near here, known as Clearwater Park. It’s a great place to walk, on a sloping path that loops around the edges of the park, which contains two ponds. In the ponds there is often wildlife – ducks, geese, herons and egrets. These photos were taken in a late afternoon in July, right after a rainfall.
