Three Views Of Geppetto

Citygarden 2015-12-05 3

In Citygarden, two blocks from yesterday's location, Tom Otterness' Kindly Geppetto stands at a quiet intersection, ever ready to blast Pinocchio's cranium. He never unleashes that left-handed swing, though. The puppet may yet grow up to be a real boy.

I saw the smooth, chocolaty bronze of the statue against the sunset-orange brick of the Wainwright Building and knew there some good shots to be had. My regret is that I didn't think to walk around to the front and shoot the puppet maker's face against the azure twilight sky. Another day.

Hmmm... this is an interesting work! Not sure that I'd immediately recognize this as Gepetto!

You are right, that is a beautiful color combination.

It has a very modern look.

Your compositions of this version of Geppetto couldn't be any better. Brilliant series, Bob.

Looove the first shot Bob and yes this sculpture did remind me of chocolate which I immediately had to have (a piece of!)I don't know how many time I've done that very same thing, get home and think why didn't I take a shot from every side, soooo annoying :)
