Photo Hunt #229: Sculpture/Daydream

21 Jun

My practice (or strategy) is to take a peek at the theme list at the beginning of the week so I can prepare for what to post at the end of the week. I don’t look at the list then take photos; I look at the list and browse at my albums to see what would fit with the theme/s.

For this week’s SCULPTURE, I originally planned on posting something else (the Thinker by Rodin), but accessing that photo requires scanning through tons of images saved in CDs. Yes I was planning on posting a photo that was taken in the early days of my blogging circa 2006-7. So to “simplify my life” a bit, I decided to go with plan B. I don’t have plan B. Plan B is scan through what’s been uploaded on Flick’r, which can be also be a daunting task since I have around 10,000 photos there.

Anyway I come up with this for today’s combined themes, except that this sculpture is no longer where it stood when I photographed it. Read this for more information.

    What a great picture for both themes. Now I have “Rocket Man” in my ear! and considering the amount of pictures you have, browsing the archives sounds like a hard task.

    Wow! You have quite a collection of photos 🙂 I am like you and I scan my existing pics for something that would work with the themes. I think you did a great job with this pic. It is inspiring of space travel dreams.

    I love this photo. I do the same thing too – look at the theme and then browse the archives. Can almost always find something! Happy weekend to you.

    I hope the sculpture’s new setting is as beautiful as the one you photographed it in.

    This sculpture is quite striking in its new location, and the big sky to fulfill the dreams!
