Travel Photography - The Back Story
On a photo walk in Armenia's capital, Yerevan, this beautiful display of art in the park caught my eye.
Yerevan is not an attractive city by any means, but some of its surroundings are; Armenia's ancient monasteries and the views across to Mount Ararat.
At weekends, much of Armenia's beauty is displayed through works of art by local artists in Saryan park; elegantly arranged around the statue of one of the country's most famous masters of colour on canvas.
Martiros Saryan (1880-1972) was a Russian-Armenian painter and founder of the Armenian national school of painting.
The site of Saryan's house in Yerevan was extended into a house-museum during the artist's lifetime.
