With my new camera I will travel to take pictures and that’s just what I did on Friday morning as I traveled to downtown Albany to Washington Park and snapped some pictures of well, the park. And of course the tulips that were left over from the Tulip Festival.

Every year on Mother’s Day weekend they throw a festival called the Tulip Festival and well, it’s in honor of a bunch of tulips they plant and they sometimes make interesting designs and what not with the flowers.

It’s one of those annual events in which everyone comes out to celebrate, I personally haven’t been since 2009, but I went by a week later and took a bunch of pictures.

You’ll see a few of the flowers, some statues from Washington Park and a bunch of other stuff. I got cut off from taking more pictures because a sudden down pour of rain. Which scared me because of my new camera. Oh, and there’s a special design from a recent movie can you tell which movie it is?

It was erected in 1893 with a monumental bronze statue of Moses smiting the rock for water on Mount Horeb. Four Israelite slaves are included representing the four states of life: infancy, youth, adulthood and old age. It was a gift from Rufus H. King and was sculpted by J. Massey Rhind. The fountain is in the center of the formal gardens laid out by William S. Egerton.
