There is something about nature and art that always seems to blend perfectly. ❤ ❤ ❤
Today my mother and I went to a Raku pottery event, by artist Dal Shoesmith. It went on at his charming home. While walking around the gardens near his workshop, many pieces of his work blended in with the surroundings. We watched the process of this technique and learned about its Japanese background. At the end of the night we got to pick one of the pieces he made. I am happy with my choice ❤.
If you’d like to know more about this Michigan artist I will have another post about his work in more detail this upcoming Thursday. And I can’t wait to write about it 😉. See you all tomorrow!
I have lived in Michigan most of my life, and have only seen a portion of it’s natural and created places. In late March a friend of mine mentioned a place I had never heard of, a park with all cement bridges that were made to look like the texture of wooden bridges. Who knew this charming place was just an hour drive away.
To know more about this park check out it’s Wikipedia linkor click on the picture below to read the green sign.
We first stumbled upon these lookalike stumps that are actually chimneys to the house above.
Each bridge had its own personality and charm. The texture really was amazing! I often thought that maybe cement had been poured over wood.
Along the way to each bridge were interesting abstract images in the water that flowed underneath and inside man made ponds.
Besides the cement bridges the park also had benches, large bird houses, a pond, a water fountain and so much more.
My Friend, Susan, that introduced us to this place managed to take a few pics of me in my element with nature.
My favorite experience here, was of meeting the huge tree in the center! Well that and seeing these little guys below.
I hope you feel as if you walked through the park with us! I’m thinking of doing more walks like this. What did you think about all the pictures, were there too many or was it all enjoyable?
I’ll be posting again in 2 days. Thursday’s post will be about the “Spring into the Arts” art walk, that happened May 18th. See ya then!
It has been a crazy busy week, but I managed to take a few quick pics. Today I messed around with my favorite app PicsArt. I’ve noticed I like to make pictures rainbow colored, invert the colors, or to”galaxize” my alterations. 🙂
I took another photo of something abstract, can you tell what it was?
I’ll be back next week with more pictures and maybe even another Photography Reflections post, haven’t done one of those in awhile ;).
