A Word A Week Challenge: Metallic.

I might be a bit late to the party with this one but as the old saying goes, ‘better late than…’ whatever. This is my contribution to Sue’s challenge over at A Word In Your Ear.

Each week she picks a word from the dictionary to challenge us and this week the word is ‘metallic’. So I dug up some photos of some beautiful metal sculptures that I stumbled upon in the Dunedin Botanical Gardens, New Zealand.

_MG_9337The sculptures were life size, incredibly detailed depictions of Peter Pan. They looked completely at home amongst the incredible flowers and manicured lawns of the Botanic Gardens. _MG_9339  Tinkerbell whispering endless secrets to Peter Pan. _MG_9342The Lost Boys were curled up amongst the roots of the tree stump Peter Pan stood upon.  _MG_9344The sculpture was decorated with all sorts of beautiful woodland creatures, such as this little guy. He was no bigger than a matchbox.  _MG_9377To one side of Peter was this gorgeous sculpture of Wendy, Michael and John Darling, flying off to Neverland. _MG_9341I thought this plaque was the perfect surreal touch to the entire masterpiece.

Harold Richmond must have been an incredible man.
