Week 39 #45 Statutes/Statues


After meeting downtown at an attorneys office to close on our new home in November I spied this Sumo Wrestler Statue in an outdoor garden area. It just struck me as such an odd thing to find in of all places Sarasota FL. There was no plaque nearby with who the artist was or why it was there. I tried to find some information about him online but, nothing turned up. So I could have used this for the Mystery Theme too. Fellow blogger Patricia had a close up of his face a while back, so I decided to go ahead and show his entire body. I can’t imagine how much he must weigh!

I have always enjoyed photography, but with encouragemet from family and friends over the past several years I began to realize I really love it! Belonging to this blog and a local digital photo group has challenged me to look at the beauty of the world and to enjoy capturing it with my camera.

  2. A rather ominous figure to have in one’s garden! It is a good picture of this statue — you’ve captured the details of this massive figure well.
