Make Way For Ducklings
Photograph - Photography
A favorite Boston landmark and tourist attraction for young and old, this bronze sculpture by Nancy Schoen was created in 1987 celebrating the 150th anniversary of the Boston Public Garden. It pays tribute to Robert McCloskeys popular children book, written in 1941, about a family of ducks who make their home here. To reach the lagoon in the Public Garden, Mrs. Mallard, the mother duck, leads her babies across a series of dangerous streets assisted by a friendly police officer. Because of the story close association with Boston, no replicas exist in other cities, with the exception of an installation in Gorky Park in Moscow at the request of Russian First Lady Raisa Gorbachev.
Good light and happy photo making!
