One With Nature

.
Citygarden 2012-10-25 1

I managed to get out of my well-appointed cell at lunchtime yesterday and take a few shots in Citygarden. In this one, Jim Dine's Pinocchio revels in the autumn sun and colorful trees. Peace, happiness and satisfaction. Were it but so easy . . .

Why does Pinocchio wear white gloves? The question just occurred to me.

Love the textures in this photo. Perhaps he wears gloves because it was fashionable to do so at the time? Was he created around the time of Minnie Mouse - I think she wore gloves ...

It's past Labour Day, and there he is, still wearing white gloves. Miss Manners would be shocked. Shocked, I say!

Great pic, Bob!

The square arms didn't make a bigger impression? I think the artist knew he couldn't do justice with having square hands.

Jim Dine? Really?
