The theme for the May photo blogging challenge was “Outside the Box”.
I had fun with this theme and let photo opportunities find me, instead of going into a month with a planned set of photos to fit the theme.
I found this art in Davis Square in Somerville, MA
My husband Dave & I were visiting shops for Free Comic Book day, and I knew as soon as I saw this art that I wanted it to be a part of my “Outside the Box” post this month!
I volunteered at Community Servings Gala in May, staffing the sports section of their silent auction. I thought the way they created eye catching displays for each item was “outside of the box”.
It must have taken some “outside of the box” thinking to add a live canary to the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum library room.
Finally, I’ve written before about how much I love walking on the Rose Kennedy Greenway on a nice day. My last 2 pictures are both from the Rose Kennedy Greenway.
This is Circle of Animals/Zodiac Heads by Chinese contemporary artist Ai Weiwei
I think it definitely took “outside of the box” thinking to display the animals of the zodiac this way – but it’s captivating and beautiful!
I could write a whole post on my love of the Greenway Carousel. I was there the day it opened to be one of the 1st to go for a ride. (I let kids go first – I’m not a monster.)
What makes this carousel one-of-a-kind and embody “outside of the box” thinking is that every animal on the carousel is native to Boston! Animals include: lobster, cod, fox, squirrel, grasshopper, peregrine falcon, turtle, butterfly, skunk, oarfish, whale, rabbit, owl, and harbor seal.
The Carousel was designed to be accessible to individuals with physical, cognitive, and sensory disabilities. I always appreciate when sites plan for everyone to be able to enjoy them!
This monthly photo blogging challenge is facilitated by PJ of the Northeast Bloggers Network.
Thanks for inspiring me to take more photos!
