In downtown Salt Lake City there is this little gem of a sculpture garden hidden behind a block of houses near Trolley Square. Created in the 50’s, Gilgal Gardens is now open to the public and is home to some pretty interesting sculptures. I decided to pay a visit and would recommend it if you happen to be in the area and want to stray off the beaten path. Don’t forget to check out the Joseph Smith Sphynx near the garden’s center while you’re there. View photos of the garden here.
In other news, if you haven’t noticed, I’ve decided to change the format of this blog a bit. Also the blog address. I had to change it to Arnoffotoblog.wordpress.com since I decided to follow some advice from Reddit and purchase a domain name for my portfolio. Arnoffoto.com is under construction, but will eventually launch with some spiffy portfolio work. Anyway, now you know. Here are some links:
