Week 4 – #20 Impression of Art

20 Impression of Art

Gulfport, FL is a quaint little town.  This past Saturday, they held their Annual Geckofest.  It was a collection of vendors with their art work, crafts, etc that you find at street festivals, and they had stages with bands playing.  I went with Diane early so as to avoid as much of the heat of the day, so we missed the themed dress – which this year was Roaring 20’s.  It would have been nice to see them, but with the threat of rain, and the heat, it was too much.  But I digress.

This horse is on one of the side streets just off the main street in Gulfport.  With all the iron work, I selected this statue of the horse as my entry for Impression of Art.  I will probably go back when it is cooler and submit more on just Gulfport, as there are decorated homes and gardens making this a nice place to visit.

    When I visit Gulfport, I always leave feeling happy. Nice, quaint little town whose residents know how to throw a party!

    You are right. Diane found a t-shirt on one of the servers at O’Maddy’s that said – “We don’t have a town drunk – we take turns”. Nice fun little town.

    You used the background to add interest to the horse, while I tried to show only trees behind it. iI like yours better.

    Interesting sculpture.

    Yes it is Terry, and this is in an artist corner on the main drag of the town, where a micro burst struck a year or so ago that damaged some of the shops there. I was surprised the horse survived.

  7. Gulfport is on my list to visit. I would like to see the art walk they have once a month. Was this the event you attended? Love the photo!

    I never knew there was so much to see in Gulfport. Cooler temps come, I’ll have to devote a day over there.

      It is right on the water, with a view of Don Cesar in the distance, so you have harbor views, and then the artist side of Gulfport itself. And all the places to eat/drink. There have been some car shows there as well. So yes you should go, but you could do it in pieces since it is so close so do a little and enjoy the food. Can you tell I am retired yet? I now look at things a lot slower. lol

  10. I like the point of view you have chosen. The town sounds an interesting place to visit and so many events to photograph too! great take on the theme.
