Steve M. Harrington 11/24/2010 1:25:23 PM

What an interesting image, Patti. I want to know more about what is attached. My imagination tells me the title Journey Afoot might work. :) Where is this statue?
Steve #9061945

Richard B. Hallick 11/24/2010 1:41:03 PM

Patti Coblentz 11/24/2010 2:17:59 PM

Hi Michele...and thanks. I just added it to the commentary, but it was part of a very large group of sculptures and waterfall in Rome. #9062016

Lorna Shutter 11/24/2010 5:11:56 PM

That looks like Tarzan's foot! LOL! Fabulous capture and tones, Patti! Very interesting crop! I'd love to see the rest of the statue too! A wonderful, creative image! :)

HAPPY THANKSGIVING to you and your family!!!!! :)

This is really cool Patricia. #9062139

Patti Coblentz 11/24/2010 5:21:44 PM

Thanks Lorna, and Ann!

Is that turkey hiding from the man, trying to disguise himself with a lampshade? LOL!

I will try to locate the rest of the statue that belongs to this foot, to be nice...I think this is a little out there, no? I know what "interesting" means :))) #9062145

Lorna Shutter 11/24/2010 5:34:19 PM

Hey, you're pretty smart to figure out the Turkey thing! Ha! Ha! :)

For your information, "interesting" (according to the MSN-Encarta dictionary) means:
1. arousing curiosity or attention: arousing curiosity, attracting or holding attention, or provoking thought

2. not boring: enjoyable because of being varied, challenging, stimulating, or exciting

That was MY meaning too! Can't speak for Steve though. LOL! :D
