As has been the norm of late, my week was busy, I only got to take photographs on three days, but I did manage to get a very nice photograph that was actually enhanced by the crazy cloudy weather we’ve been having recently.
This week I give you a scene from the Botanical Gardens, I was in the central area of the Seven Ponds, where some of the Nation’s revered men have been laid to rest; including the first Guyanese Governor General, Sir David Rose, the First President of Guyana, Arthur Chung and the great Guyanese poet Martin Carter.
Facing the ponds is The Mausoleum where the body of the second president of Guyana, Forbes Burnham, is entombed. Linden Forbes Samson Burnham was the first Executive President of Guyana, and was called the Founder Leader during his tenure as president.
The Mausoleum is a recent addition to the Gardens being built in 1986, it has numerous sculptures on the interior walls done by Ivor Thom.
The reflection in the pond was what drew me to this scene, I hope you like it.

It doesn’t matter if you only get to take photos once a week if you are going to produce quality like this. It’s not always easy to find inspiration in your everyday surroundings, but every once in a while, you can truly make something marvelous.
I like that word “marvellous”, I’ll take it 🙂
Great picture Mike, love the reflection in the water and the sky, looks great even though its black and white.

Thanks David, its very nice of you to say 🙂 I am very sorry that I have been so busy lately, I really hope to find the time soon to go back through a lot of the blogs I am supposed to be following! Thanks for taking that time to visit mine 🙂
This is a very vibrant image. Viewed large it is great and I can imagine how very, very large would really bring out its atributes of tonal range and wonderful lines.I do think black and white was the perfect choice for it.
Thanks Cindy, It is one of my better ones of recent 🙂 Now that you mention it, I may just print it large 🙂
