L'art comme en français


















Even in the countryside far away from the capital one can find signs of the desire to pursue art.

Hi Asta!

I embiggened this photo and saw that you've photographed a beautiful piece of art in a beautiful area, and your photo is excellent - nice and sharp!

Artistic work such as this enliven and brighten up any area.

This looks like a wonderful site with that lake in the background!

Good job!

Have a wonderful weekend!

Asta said...

Thank you Jacob!
It is indeed something that brightens up this fantastic area...... There are so many signs of life and creativity that it is difficult to choose I feel......

Cheers,
Asta

Beautiful fountain and the variety of plants is marvelous. I would rather relax and enjoy anything outside of a busy city! I guess there's still a lot of "farm girl" left in me. :)

Asta said...

Yes Cheryl, one does get this countryside feeling-:) It's a nice feeling I think.....

Cheers,
Asta

Asta, where is this taken?

Asta said...

Hi John: It's taken in Jaervsoe, which is in Mid-Sweden. It's at Stenegaard, which was created by a local farmacist in the mid-1850ies.

Cheers,
Asta

That is so beautiful, Asta! I love the flowers around it and the trees and sky in the background too.

Really a nice place and the statue is a perfect choice for this spot. After 'embiggening', as Jacob says, I can see something written on the base. Any idea about what it says?

James said...

The fountain,trees,flowers and even the building are all so beautiful.

We are surrounded by art. All we have to do is open our eyes.

Asta said...

Vogon: I will try to get back and check what it says.

B Squared: You are absolutely right. It's just pick and choose.

Cheers,
Asta
