THROUGH MY LENS - Sculptures in Bangor Walled Garden

I visited the Bangor Walled Garden recently and they had an exhibition of sculptures intertwined within the plants and although these are not all of them, I tried to show you a good variety of them.  
On Wednesday I will show you some of the flowers in the garden.

SUNDAY THOUGHT

How do you know what is going to happen tomorrow?
For the length of your lives is as uncertain as the morning fog—now you see it; soon it is gone.

FRIDAYS HUNT and WEEKEND REFLECTIONS

Time again for Friday’s Hunt and Weekend Reflections and today’s letter is Y, Favourite and Splash.  Y is for YELLOW and I thought the first shot had a wonderful SPLASH of colours and you can see the YELLOW is SPLASHed throughout it.  Also my YELLOW clogs are slighly on the big size for me!!.  These 2 images were taken when i visited the Keukenhol Gardens in Amsterdam this year..





Not only is this a REFLECTION image above but you can see the YELLOW lights in the background of the hotel and also the way the water fountain makes a SPLASH on the water.  These images was taken on our way back to the hotel after an evening cruise in Amsterdam.  





While we were in Amsterdam we visited the Rijks Museum and in the garden they have this fountain and it was such fun to watch as all the jets did not come up at the same time and people tried to get inside the whole fountain before they got wet and then had to try and get out again before they even got one SPLASH of water on them. Often they did not succeed!  Two if us had a go.


I was away for the weekend on Great Saltee Island, near Kilmore Quay in Wexford and while waiting for the boat to take us to the mainland I photographed the waves as they dashed against the rocks creating a huge SPLASH.
