Lunch Time Challenge #1


I'm giving myself a little challenge for this week.  The weather is so nice right now I think should get out of the office for lunch this week and I've challenged myself to take a blog photo at lunch every day this week.  Above is Monday's picture.  Not very far from my office, I spotted this statue in someone's yard.

It is formed from a variety of salvaged pieces of metal and items that have been discarded.  There was a signature on the piece that looks like it says Carla Cola 09 however, I can't find any information to confirm that name.

I can't wait to see what I find tomorrow.

I think this person is the most creative artist whose work of "found things" I ever saw.

Lowell said...

Wow, that is wild! Got to have a good imagination to put something like that together. What a great find. Perhaps Carla had a little too much rum in her cola when she decided to make a horse? :-)

What a great idea Sharon, it will really make you 'look' as you walk around. I have to say this is a brilliant start to the challenge, some people have the most amazing imaginations.

Karl said...

That's simply unique, Sharon!
What an imagination.

Kathy said...

Me too(wait to see what you find)!

My goodness, this is unusual. Neat idea for lunch, should be fun.

I believe I know where may have gotten this. There is a place on Val Vista and Main. I was driving around the area one time, came to the stop and gasped! This looks just like the horse I saw out front. There were other fun and funky sculpture--like yard ornamentation ,too.

Very unique!

I'll be anxious to see and enjoy your finds. I like "junk/found objects" sculptures.

We have a couple of these horses around town. I even posted them on my blog a while back.
Good luck on your photo hunt!

That took quite a bit of imagination to "see" that horse in that pile of...stuff. :)

RedPat said...

It reminds me of the 'horse' they use in the play "War Horse". Great!

That's awesome! How great that you can just take a walk during lunch and find something so unusual.
