A Dance in the Park

Sculpture of dancing couple, Tivoli Park, Ljubljana

These joined hands are from a sculpture of a dancing couple that’s situated at the far end of the Jakopič promenade in Tivoli Park, near the park’s eponymous castle which houses the International Center of Graphic Arts. It’s one of my favorite sculptures in Ljubljana, and a nice place to end a three-hour hike through the park’s snowy hills and trails. It’s also a pleasant snap with which to remember very enjoyable Sunday afternoon company.

For the dancing sculpture-curious among you, a few more snaps: a shot of the pair taken about a month ago, another of the young man taken today, and the last showing the view they share of the park’s main promenade, facing east. And if you’re still longing for more, check out a vidblog I put together a little over a years ago composed of 1200 pics, with the pair –naturally!– making a cameo appearance. Enjoy!

    Nice images! Some great angles, and the snow-draped ones look brilliant! :)

      Thanks – that was fun to make. Went for lots of walks that winter when I finally quit smoking. :)

        It has all the elements of a good documentary, while exposing a lot of great local color and even humor.
