Amelia Earhart

 

There is a new sculpture in front of one of my favorite galleries in Scottsdale.  This time it's Amelia Earhart taking a rest on that park bench.  The last person I photographed here was Albert Einstein and before him it was Mark Twain.  Sculptor Gary Lee Price does an amazing job bringing these people to life.  

I love the quote that is printed on the bench.  "Everyone has oceans to fly, if they have the heart to do it. Is it reckless?  Maybe. But what do dreams know of boundaries?"

Very nice. The first thing that popped into my mind is that I am old enough to know who she is. :-)

What a pretty sculpture, so inviting to take a seat next to her.

No boundaries to whatsoever... at least mentally.

Beautiful statue and love the quote too :)

Wonderful image, she is a fascinating person, talented, driven, she fought back against restraint. It is possible she was a victim of the sexism she fought against. I could carry on about that,

People love this type of sculpture where they can sit and have their pic taken beside a famous person. It is a good one, Sharon!

Great! I wonder if we will ever solve that mystery.

I'd been wondering what had happened to her.

The bench has been a place to sit for so many famous people. Nice pic and the others are too.
