Happy Wednesday, one more day till Thursday, I'm excited! Didn't feel so great this morning so it has been a pretty uneventful day so far. Puppy got a bath and I cleaned my house a bit so all in all today has been low key and easy going. I decided today to share some images I took on a walk downtown through the Pappajohn Sculpture Garden here in Des Moines. There are some beautiful pieces there (and some really creepy ones too!) and it is nice to view art outside of a gallery, no guide, no major rules (resist the temptation to touch the pieces, I got too close to one of the pieces and a speaker in the ground yelled at me to move away! Ha!). There is one piece in particular that I am in love with and has served as the "face" of downtown Des Moines since its installation, introducing.....
"Nomade" by the Spanish artist, Jauma Plensa
You can actually walk in beneath the piece which made for some really cool pictures with the alternate views. I got pretty lucky while I was out, it was actually really overcast and the sky went from bright blue to black in about twenty minutes. I made it safely back to my car right as the first huge drops of rain started to fall, now driving home in it safely is a whole other story. Couple of close calls and becoming completely soaked walking from my driveway into my house, yikes!
Have a great day All! See you all tomorrow!
