Camaguey Cuba

Bronze Statues by Martha Jimenez. We visited her studio and I bought a small original picture of hers. The old chap reading the newspaper was apparently the original model for the piece.

Manga Me!

Manga are a Japanese phenomenon and the highly stylised cartoons are renown world  wide. These are a couple of photos I  played around with on some random app. Please don’t ask me which one it was, because I haven’t a clue!

The Jefferson Memorial in Washington DC

Pedal Power in Camaguey, Cuba

These wee cyclos were a great way to get around Camaguey and were the subject of many colourful art pieces. This was me racing with “T” and “D” as we went around the town exploring the art galleries.

The Hakone Outdoor Art Museum

This outdoor sculpture park is an easy day trip from my place and I love to take my visitors there.

Here are “D,S and J” being good sports and re-enacting  Henry Moore’s sculpture, Family Group.

 

and this is “B” attempting to mimic the sculpture’s flight. I am not sure if he is Pegasus or Bellerophon?
