Studious gentleman


This shot is for Elisabeth, who likes statues she can interact with. If Elisabeth finds that Kermit isn’t the greatest conversationalist, maybe she’d prefer to sit next to this colonial gentleman (whoever he is). But unless she’s friends with the owners of this private house in Alexandria, She’ll have to content herself with looking at him through the railings, as I did.

    It’s too bad there was a fence keeping you from getting up close and personal with this sitting statue. I can imagine all kinds of photo opportunities if you’d been able to pose some friends or passers-by here.

    The way he’s perched at the edge of the bench, it looks like he’s about to jump up in excitement and say something.

    Love the photo – all statues should be interactive, don’t you think? What good is non-accessible art?

    He is absolutely hot, and he writes to boot. So, it’s really not allowed to get anywhere near him? Sorry I did not visit your blog until today, my life has been very hectic for the past few days.
