Ready For Warmer Weather?


So is she. This is another statue that is still floating Canyon Road. I thought she made a great shot with this little tuft of snow.

Good night :)

Realy funny.

I think we are all ready for warmer weather. In Germany today we had -6 degree Celsius. And as we wait for the warm, the cold feels even colder.

These street sculptures are wonderful, I'm always enchanted when I meet one sculpture in my way when I'm walking and taking pictures.How luck you are!And thanks for sharing!

Nice shot. I must say now that our snow has melted and the sidewalks are not all icy, I am looking forward to warmer weather.

Doug Hickok said...

Wonderful point of view and juxtaposition. The line of snow makes a nice compositional divide.

She looks quite comfortable there and in contemplation on Canyon Road... I imagine that you are ready for the warmer weather. Never fear because spring is near or that's what the groundhog said - hah!

Fun shot!
Spring is coming soon! ;-)

Sharon said...

I hope that's a hot spring she has submerged herself in! :-)

Kathy said...

Oh, to be floating down some peaceful river right in a tube with the sun on your bath - pure joy!

Marty said...

Luis Gomez said...

Aren't we all Randy? Nice shot.

Kate said...

what a great statue and great capture.

Allison said...

She reminds me of warm weather pool-side. :)

VP said...

I like this! Awesome idea!

It took me awhile but I see it now. She's floating in an inner tube. Makes me wonder why the artist would choose that. It would be an ideal piece for here in California along the Russian River.

Birdman said...

hahahahaha! Funny shot.

You framed this perfectly. It's a really expressive shot. Great work.

Jarart said...

You find so many wonderful sculptures and this one is fun a unusual. She does look cold though. Must be a hot tub!

What an interesting subject matter for a bronze casting. I love seeing what other artists are doing... I need to peruse canyon rd a bit more perhaps? On one hand, I am ready for spring, though I wouldn't mind maybe one more good snow before winter is over!

Mahon said...

Original this statue, I like your photo and the title chosen well ! excellent randy :))

Bye**

JM said...

She has pushed the snow away! :-) Very cool!

Winchester Daily Photos said...

Our snow has long since gone, I'm amazed how long it hangs on for in the states!

Wick Daily Photo said...

I'd be afraid of tripping over her.

cieldequimper said...

Did she appreciate your going down on all fours for her? :-) This is more surprising than the last one but I like it!

RedPat said...

This is a fabulous piece and it looks to be perfectly placed there! Nice capture.

Leif Hagen said...

What a fun piece of "summer sculpture!" I would have posed with her!

Isabel said...

You have very nice photographs here, thank you for sharing them!

Irredento Urbanita said...

She is thinking because she was made for that. Lovely sculpture, I enjoyed it!!

This shot made me chuckle a bit. =) Great find!

lizziviggi said...

If I was that snow, I would melt under her pensive gaze! And yes, I AM ready for warmer weather... think you can arrange it?

Dawn said...

She looks like I feel. Tired from all this winter:)

EG Wow said...

She's not the only one waiting! :)

Farmchick said...

She looks so real!

T. Becque said...

What a neat idea for a statue!

Jacob and Lois Anne said...

What a fantastic sculpture! Never seen anything quite like it.

Great photo, too. I like very much how you got down on her level to make the shot! Hope you didn't sink without an inner tube, though!

Thanks for the nice comments!

Jack said...

That is a pretty odd sculpture, isn't it? I don't see it in my living room.

黄清华 Wong Ching Wah said...

Such creative minds ...

Magpie said...

So unusual. Glad to see she's wearing a cap with a visor to protect her face from the sun.
Did your knees get wet from kneeling in the snow to get this shot?

Lisa said...

Love this one - you've got some great photos!
