The Man With Two Hats

This circular flowerbed in Commissioners Park had two types of tulips- when I came back here for another photo tour on the last Friday of the festival, they were fully open. I'll be showing that set before this series is done.


This was a temporary installation in the park.


This is a permanent installation, Man With Two Hats, by the Dutch artist Henk Visch. It has a double in Apeldoorn, the Netherlands.


The flowerbeds further on in the park were irresistible for photographers.

  7. Now I like the man with two hat. It's thought provoking. Tulips are more showy when they are fully in bloom.

  8. Love the flowers! But you know that. I like that quirky sculpture, too. And the man with two hats is pretty funky. It seems he needs two heads! And if those heads were empty he could become our president! Yea!
