Candy for your eyes with Cosimo Cavallaro's Jelly Beans in West Hollywood Park...

If you go down to the park today your sure to get a big surprise, three in fact. That's what I thought when I was out walking our Labrador Cooper on Friday morning after being away for a few days in Palm Springs.

Three vibrant large-scale jelly beans have appeared in West Hollywood Park alongside San Vicente Boulevard as part of the city's outdoor public art initiative.

The trio of bright orange and green, plus black (or is that midnight blue?) sculptures can't help but catch your eye as you walk, or drive by, and are another example of the fantastic whimsical art to be seen on the streets of West Hollywood.

I'm not quite sure what Cooper thought about them, but at least he didn't want to cock a leg and pee over them, but I'm sure it won't be long before another dog has the same idea.

These humorous jelly bean sculptures by Cosimo Cavallaro are a fun addition to the park and really complement the equally whimsical Temple of Folly sculptures by Liz Craft to be found near this new installation.

I certainly couldn't help but capture the super-sized candy, like some giant had dropped them from on high, even though the dazzling sunshine and hazy heat of the day didn't make for the best photographic conditions.

Even though this photo is a tad overexposed, it's cool to see the Pacific Design Center (and me photographing it) reflected on its shiny surface.

Let's hope these giant jelly beans are treated with respect and nobody vandalizes or tries to steal one, like they did with the William Sweetlove's pink bulldog statue earlier this year. They look pretty hefty, so the possibility of theft seems unlikely, but let's face it, you never know.

Hopefully everyone will get a chance to enjoy this latest West Hollywood eye candy...
