The Falconer

"The Falconer" (Statue at Lynch Park) Nikon D300, 48mm, F/8, 1/640s, ISO 400

When the sun came out (hallelujah!) for a few moments this afternoon, I was able to get a better shot of “The Falconer” statue at Lynch Park.

Commissioned by the Evans family in the 1920’s, it is a replica of the original “Falconer” in New York’s Central Park, which was in sight of Mr. Evans’ window as he lay sick in a New York hospital. 

The statue, depicting a young boy dressed in Elizabethan-style clothing releasing a falcon from his left hand, stands guard over the sunken Italian rose garden.

Now, don’t we all feel smarter?
