may theme day: statues

may's theme day coincides with the final installment of my project documenting pasadena's mosaic park signs. this is one of my favorite parks because it is the setting of pasadena's free summer concert series. fortunately, memorial park includes a statue - thus fitting in with this month's city daily photo theme!
