It is worth the drive to get there. We will be meeting in front of the big round mirror by the Arts Building at 10:00 a.m. This place has a lot of photo opportunities for a wide angle and/or zoom lens. You might even like to take some macro shots. It is very interesting to see works of art come to life in the sculptures.
