I thought I might share a few pictures today I've taken when out walking in the last couple of weeks.

The first three are a "sculpture" that is on display over at the Reston Town Center about 1 mile from my home.







The next pictures are more to my liking as nature suits me much better than urban areas




















Thanks for taking the time to look!

Deb, I simply love the nature ones, especially the deer!
The water ones remind me of so many childhood holidays where we would go to places like that.

The sculptures are unusual. The second two look like some kind of primitive huts, lol!

Nice pictures, the nature ones are so peaceful. The sculptures are interesting, it must have taken someone a good amount of time to construct them, are they made of actual branches or something made to look like branches?

Those are some beautiful photographs, Deborah! The deer are lovely and it looks oh-so-peaceful in that area! Is that a specific park to walk around in?

The town center looks very nice and I love the sculptures. I hope they let you walk inside them

Thanks, Emma
The three pictures of the sculpture are all of the same exhibit. I think they look like huts too!

They are actually made of natural branches.

You might find this article about the artist and his methods interesting:

They are made from real wooden branches.

The nature pictures were taken in a small park area that belongs to a nearby subdivision that I drive past occasionally.

I decided I wanted to stop one day recently and walk through it (even though it is posted it is for residents of that subdivision only -- what's up with that?).

I was really happy I did so when I discovered the two beautiful deer out grazing for their lunch in the meadow!

You are not allowed to walk through the sculptures at the Town Center nor touch them.
However, there were a lot of little birds that were certainly enjoying perching in and playing on them!

Wonderful photos...such a lovely area for you to stroll through - loved all the Nature shots...interesting sculpture - you would believe it should be open for all to see ?

Parts of Reston are still nice but it's become very over-crowded and not what it was meant to be when it was conceived back in the 60's.
Way too many high-rise apartment buildings, congestion and people for my liking

Thanks, Susan --
Everyone can see the sculpture, but you can't touch it or go inside it. I'm sure they are afraid people would destroy it if they allowed them too close to it.

My friend and I drove over to Maryland to a “Fairy Garden” exhibit.
Afterward, we went to nearby Solomon’s Island for lunch.
