Cormorant Fisherman at Eden Park, Cincinnati, Ohio

Good morning,

My Honey and I went on a photo safari to Eden Park in Cincinnati on a beautiful Spring day.  Eden Park is very close to our home and we pass it regularly.  We make a point to stop a few times a year with cameras in hand.

Above is the Cormorant Fisherman, a statue gift of friendship to Cincinnati from our sister city of Gifu, Japan.
If you are unable to read the plaque, it explains how the trained Cormorants are sent out to fish while tethered, then are brought back to the fishing boats with their catch. 
The statue is on the lower level of Eden Park. 
It is wonderful to have these green spaces so close.  I remember coming here when I was a child. It was a favorite spot for my Father to try out a new camera or take pictures of my brothers and me while we enjoyed picnics here.
More images of this area that I took last Spring are here.

My Honey and I both have many images to share that you will surely see in days to come on our blogs.  He also has been reworking his Hobby Photography web site that you may enjoy visiting.  Although we go on these photo journeys together, we have a little different eye for what we capture.

Happy Spring!

Lois

My parents had many photo sessions in Eden Park too, Lois. As a very young child, I lived near The Taft Museum...totally different there today though!

i'm glad you explained why Ohio had a cormorant fisherman statue. i thought the title of your post was mighty odd! :)

The sculpture is wonderful in that although it's static it also tells a story. Looks like you took a great photo safari!

City parks are SO important, makes me mad when some are built over.

Places like these make large cities livable. Our souls need green space.

Lois and Kjell, it's great that you get away for short road trips. Grenville and I enjoy doing that as well and we always "see" things differently or just different things - makes it really interesting to compare/contrast our views.

Everyone does see things differently and that different perspective keeps things more interesting.

I love to see your country through your lens.

Good morning,

We are lucky to be able to pick the good days for taking pictures to go on our trips close to home here. It's nice to be home on vacation, but it will be over soon and we will head South again.

Wanda, I have a feeling that at some time while we were growing up we were at the same place at the same time. :)

Thank you, everyone, for stopping by and your very kind words.

Best,
Lois
