Photohunters: Daydream Sculptures


I have a tendency to daydream when I'm walking.

I decided to combine the two theme by showing you sculptures at the NC Botanical Garden in Chapel Hill.

I was daydreaming while walking through the garden taking pictures of the sculpture.

Since these shots are from a number of different walks and years I can't tell you exactly what I was daydreaming about.

Even if I could remember, I would probably not want to write about my daydreams anyway.

The botanical garden has a lot of different sections to show the different habitats in North Carolina.

Many of the sculptures are nestled in the wild parts of the garden.

That's the reason these shots don't include many of the flower beds and other cultivated plants that are in the garden.

The bee sculptures are almost scary enough to turn a daydream into a horror movie.

The little boy in the bottom corner below almost looks like he's running away from the winged sculpture.

A great collection of sculptures. I often daydream while I walk too. I think the nature trails inspire them. :) Happy photo hunting and happy Summer!

The botanical garden looks perfect for daydreaming when walking in it -- same as the Japanese stroll gardens I've been to! :)
