Neighbors

This space on the 100 block of Gay Street often hosts temporary art shows. This looked like someone forgot to take part of their exhibit. Or maybe one of the neighbors has turned into bronze.

Wow. I was surprised to read your comment on your photo.

Imagine my surprise at what popped-out of my sprinkling can > Dances on Sunshine

LOL, maybe its a mother in law who wasnt left by accident.

Now Jim, mother in laws are people too! :)
I would like a close up of this sculpture. Could you maybe break in and take one?

Maybe the people of Knoxville are not quite as evil as the preacher you featured a few days ago makes them out to be, so they don't get turned into pillars of salt. Maybe they're just bad enough to become statues of bronze. It seems lonely and cold because the room appears to be empty but the statue faces inward, avoiding contact with passers-by.

Thank you for your comment today. It was very perceptive. You are exactly right about the quality of the color. Not all HDRs look quite like that but I'm just learning the technique. Click the link to the tutorial from my post today and you'll see some pictures by a real pro. Moving objects in an HDR could certainly be a problem. The Photomatix software attempts to compensate for that (no idea how it works) and the train was moving very slowly. The software did a good job with that.

I like the mystery of the figure's back. Too heavy to move? Now part of the permanent collection?

Jim was to quick for me today. Ilove the mother in law comment. I would happily live Gary's mother anywhere. It is spooky.
