From Cee’s to Shiny Cee’s

Time for a change of pace: switching from the A to Z Challenge to Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge. Cee’s theme this week is “shiny.

Here’s a great place for photography:    Grounds for Sculpture

Grounds for Sculpture near Trenton, New Jersey was the brainchild of sculptor, J. Seward Johnson.  Built on New Jersey’s old fairgrounds, Grounds for Sculpture opened in 1992, and now displays over 270 works by well-known artists.  Some of the life-size pieces are serious, some whimsical, some humorous, some modern, some traditional, but all guaranteed to increase your appreciation and enthusiasm for large sculpture. While strolling around the grounds, you will be surprised and delighted many times by what you see. The park is a photographer’s seventh heaven. It’s a good place for families and friends to visit.

Unnaturals Invade Grounds for Sculpture in NJ

Late October, 2013.

News Flash. Unnaturals (Spooks? Zombies? Undead denizens? Dead Denizens? Residents of the Deep?) have found their way onto the Grounds for Sculpture in Trenton, New Jersey.

The NJ State Police have sent out detectives to ascertain their purpose for being in these local woods. Perhaps these undead are looking for Dan Shamble, that dead zombie private investigator who still works for his living by solving strange murder cases…including his own. Shamble was last seen in Kevin J. Anderson’s book, Death Warmed Over. Just ignore that bullet hole in his forehead. Anyway, you hardly notice it when he pulls his hat down.

Latest news: The Governor of New Jersey, Chris Christie, has asked the NJ National Guard for military reinforcements to protect the citizens of this great state. In the meantime, he has made a newsworthy public announcement in which he emphatically stated, “Hey, You. Whatever you are. Get the hell out of New Jersey’s woods!”

Are you brave enough to go seek these unnaturals out? Look in the bamboo grove at the Grounds for Sculpture, but enter cautiously. These unnaturals reportedly have supersensitive hearing and can smell aliens (that’s us humans) a block away. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

What? Are those horns on this unnatural? Is it … Satan… himself? In person?


Don’t miss this incredible landscape/sculpture park. It is beautiful, amusing, and surprising. You never know what you might find hiding in the woods or just standing out in plain sight.

I found a coven of witches there which I reported on here: Witches on the Prowl.

Here’s another (human) view of the Grounds  for Sculpture…before the invasion of the unnaturals: Traveltimetalk.com, Grounds for Sculpture.

The Last Meow

Those unnaturals don’s scare me. Let me have a go at ’em. I can get rid of ’em faster than Chris Christie can say, “Meow.”
