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.
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.
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.
I wondered what the world looked like through Penelope’s eyes.
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.
And though I wandered a bit farther before the day was done, that was the extent of the day’s adventure.
