On our walk this past Sunday, we saw one of the installations for the new “Art Around Roswell” exhibit for 2017.  I made the rounds to see all the sculpture from last year’s first annual exhibit and just happened across this one.

The sculpture is positioned along the Roswell Riverwalk just across the street from the Chattahoochee Nature Center.  Titled “Reception“, it is the work of artist Fred Ajanogha.

There will be nine other sculptures appearing throughout Roswell and will be on display for the year.  There will be ribbon cutting ceremony for the 2017 Art Around Roswell tour on Saturday, April 22, at the Heart of Roswell Park on Canton Street.  Be sure to keep your eyes open for this wonderful artwork!

River-walk reflection

It seems that the time-change has extended the hours of the River Walk along the Chattahoochee in Roswell.  Joyce and I went out around 5PM yesterday to walk along the river with the thought that we would be pretty much alone.  That was not at all the case.  The walkway was still very much in use and there were parties in the pavilions along the river.  It seems that, since this was a nice, warm and sunny day, everyone had the same idea.  I guess the fact that we just made the spring-ahead time change had something to do with it since there was no hint of the sun setting anytime soon.

We spotted this Canada Goose along the way.  I just loved the reflection in this scene.  Of course, within a couple of minutes, all the other passers-by saw it as well and the geese swam off due to all the close attention.  Oh well, at least i got a decent shot before that.

Chattahoochee fog

Last week offered some interesting weather to try to photograph.  The week started with the rainy, foggy weather you see here and ended with ice and snow.  Oh well, it’s supposed to be into the 70’s this week.  This is change of seasons in Atlanta – the season changes every day!

This view is actually from the new River Walk boardwalk near the Chattahoochee Nature Center.  It is a very nice walk which I expect will be great to explore as the seasons actually change over the year.
