WEEKEND REFLECTIONS - Victoria Park, Befast ( Part 3)

Before I show you my main post today, as many of you saw and commented on the 'Swan' sculpture last week and as you wanted to know who had made it, I am pleased to tell you I had a lovely conversation with the artist this week.  Her name is Rosi Gomes and she signs her work Rosi G and the sculpture is entitled "Taking off".  It turns out she lives in my town and this sculpture is dedicated to her grandfather who had several businesses in Newtownards, where the Sculture now resides at Kiltonga Wildlife Reserve. For those who missed it last week, below is another photograph of it.



The reflections were not great at Victoria Park but I hope you enjoy the Tufted Duck, Shelduck and the Common Tern.  






I am linking this post to WEEKEND REFLECTIONS.

Thank you for for visiting and also to those who leave commnets.
