I generally try to limit my posts to 4 or 5 images, but there is so much astonishing art in this setting that I am finding it nearly impossible to winnow down to just a handful. So, to balance off all those images, I will remain quiet for a bit.

    The natural patina on the statues is lovely. They are time travelers.

    Wow. These are amazing.

    Okay, holding the head tops it. It’s what I am doing now whilst men with hammers pound on window frames.

  4. all I can “say” is… wow. And tremendous!

    • “Wow” is good. I’ll gladly take that. (Thanks, Bob!)
      I see that a major political convention is coming to your city…thinking of switching to some street photography?

      • Cleveland has had quite a few great things happen to it, recently… I think it’s great about the convention, and we now have Superman back, playing on our basketball team! And i will probably sneak in a few shots of “street life” during the convention–but I have found that people in general… particularly, strangers, don’t like cameras pointed at them… they think you’re up to no good!

    Fine fingers, I particularly like no. 6. Waiting a long time for these 🙂

    • Thank you, Andy. It is full-on summer here now and it has also been full-on friends and family time lately. I am taking advantage of a lull in the action.
      And, so…while you were waiting…how’s that dissertation going? (Are you the only candidate who has a global network of women crabbing at him?) 🙂

        I am happy it is full on friends and family time. It’s cold Winter here, and unlike you who took steam and snow shots, I stay inside and sometimes add a little to the topic. Taking a break from work for a week so I hope to add a photo or two with luck. Crabbing as in being “crabby”, I can manage 🙂

    • I should have said “encouraging” rather than “crabbing.” 🙂

    What dramatic pictures? Where is this place?

    #4 is more than a little weird. Great shots though.
