Fish Sculptures in Pompano Beach

Painted Pompano

“The Painted Pompano series is Pompano Beach’s first large public art installation. The project consists of 12 five foot tall fish sculptures which are being placed at various locations throughout the City. Each of the Painted Pompano sculptures has been individualized by artists in a variety of styles and finishes…” (SOURCE: City of Pompano Beach)

I photographed these sculptures today while visiting the Pompano Beach Library near A1A.

The View from Riverwalk Park

Riverwalk Fort Lauderdale is the organization that manages Riverwalk Linear Park. The park runs along the New River in Fort Lauderdale and offers spactacular views of downtown Fort Lauderdale.

I stopped by the western end of the park at lunch time and came away with some decent shots. Here are a few taken near The Performing Arts Centre.
