Cinco de Cinco

Happy Cinco de Mayo, dear readers. I hope you are enjoying a tasty taco and a lovely Margarita, if you are so inclined. (I know I am!) As it is the fifth of the month, it’s time to take a photowalk for Five on the Fifth.

I set out on a journey. I wasn’t sure where I’d go or what I’d see, until this little fellow showed me the way. I wasn’t sure which was more odd— the nose piercing, or that he was wearing a fluorescent orange muffler on such a nice day.

Walk This Way

I walked down the street and into a park. Suddenly, a fearsome shadow fell over me. I looked up and saw a fantastic shape. It was public art. Statues of this sort are all along the waterfront.

Big Fish in the Sky

I walked through Seaport Village, a pleasant little collection of shops and seaside restaurants, and on the other side was a huge metal head, looking out over the water. At its base was an inscription describing how Penelope waited for Odysseus.

Penelope Waits

I wondered what the world looked like through Penelope’s eyes.

End Of Line

Soon, I encountered the next Urban Tree, this one called “Green Fire. ” I wonder if the artist planned for this particular angle of view at this particular time of day. I like to think so.

Let The Sun Shine

And though I wandered a bit farther before the day was done, that was the extent of the day’s adventure.

  1. You are invited to take part in the next “5 on the fifth”.  As usual, everyone is welcome to take part. You can either take 5 random pictures of something that happens to you on the 5th of September (or the days leading up to it) or perhaps go for my suggested theme. This month, the theme is The Blues.
