52 Weeks Of Photo Challenges

A theme based photo blog

13. Zig Zag


Sarasota if filled with statues/sculptures! Just in googling for this blog I found stories about the Museum of Art and Whimsy, The Art Center Sarasota’s Statue Gardens, Sarasota Season of Sculpture and one that everyone is very familiar with the Unconditional Surrender kissing statue near Marina Jacks! I must admit I don’t always understand some of the choices of sculpture they choose to display along the bay. The Unconditional Love statue attracts a lot of tourists, but I’m puzzled how a statue that is based on a photo taken in New York found its way to the bay front in Sarasota. Oh well.

I found this silly alligator art/sculpture on Palm Ave. recently while walking around in downtown Sarasota. It’s not my favorite piece of downtown art but it did fit the theme “Zig Zag.” Because of that it will earn a place in my weekly photo blog. Maybe next year one of our themes will match some of the other statues that rank higher on my list!

Hi, my name is Mindy Towns, I live in Lakewood Ranch, Florida. Along with several friends I have been participating in a weekly, theme based, photo blog since August 2012. Each year we receive a new list of 52 themes. We then post a photo each week that fits one of the themes along with a brief description about why we feel the photo fits the theme. Over the years I have learned a lot about my camera, new photography technics and also a lot about my fellow bloggers. I've peeked into their homes, met their families and traveled to exotic places through their photos. This year I am challenging myself further by trying to become even more creative in my posts. I found the cutest little Playmobil person complete with a camera and a little dog. She is going to be my little personal assistant over the coming months. I'm going to use many of the photo skills I have learned from participating in the photo challenge along with some new photoshop tools I have been practicing. I hope you will continue to follow my blog as I change things up a bit this year. Perhaps some of you will raid someones toy chest or toss something cute into your Target shopping cart and get a little silly with me. If you want to see examples of my grown up photography please visit one of my links listed on this blogs home page!
