Sculpture Zoo - animal representations : Sculptures that depict animals, including some that are not strictly representational, but are identifiable as animals.

For the present, the examples all come from the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, Grand Rapids, Michigan.  In time, I'll add examples from other locales.
The gallery is sorted by caption, with each caption beginning with a letter code for the animal, and an index number.  Thus it is effectively sorted alphabetically by animal name.  

If I have taken enough pictures of a particular sculpture that I've made a separate gallery for it, typically I'll collect a few representative pictures of it to this gallery.  If you see the link to the "Original Gallery" in a caption, you'll know that is what I have done, and that if you're interested, you can see more of that particular sculpture in the other gallery.  In a few cases, I've collected pictures of animal sculptures that fit in other categories (the 2010 Chihuly Exhibition, for example).

People known and unknown : Candid photos that express things I find interesting, and mostly appealing, about the human condition.  Love and humor are a couple of recurring motifs.  Naturally, children are irresistible.

Meijer Gardens, Grand Rapids Michigan : The Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park, in the NE corner of Grand Rapids, Michigan, is a 125 acre campus that is laid out in a variety of areas for displaying the sculpture collection in a context of extensive plantings of trees and flowers, along with a number of charming water features. Entry into the gardens is through a large building that houses several conservatories for special plant environments, galleries, meeting rooms, etc.  This photo gallery starts with pictures I took on my first visit there, in early October of 2010.  The only camera I had with me was my point-and-shoot Canon G10 (with the noisiest sensor ever created).  Still, I hope the pictures give you a flavor of some of the main features of this marvelous facility.  There was a Chihuly exhibit of art glass mounted in the gardens, and pictures of those pieces are in a separate gallery.  Voting was just finishing up for the Grand Rapids ArtPrize, billed as the largest prize for art in the world ($250,000 Grand Prize, and $450,000 total prize money).  Some of the entries were available for viewing in a garden that lies just outside the main building, and is thus free to the viewing public.  Pictures of those works appear in a separate gallery, also.

Sights of the Season - Christmas miscellany : Originally this gallery was an oleo of shots taken at various locales during the 2008 Christmas season.  I've decided to expand it to contain miscellaneous shots of indoor decorations.  I've moved the shots outdoor decorations and seasonal sights, like holly, to a separate gallery.  Likewise, closeups of single tree ornaments or a few ornaments together have been moved out to the specialized gallery for that subject.

Christmas at the Conservatories : It is typical for botanical gardens and conservatories to put out a variety of Christmas decorations that emphasize the natural world.  This gallery is intended for photos of such decorations.  For now, I'll simply continue to add to it year after year until it becomes too unwieldly.
Shots which focus primarily on single ornaments or close-ups of a few ornaments on various trees are mostly in other specialized galleries, with just a few examples in this gallery to give an idea of what the tree decorations were like.
