A twenty-year-younger me visiting the Superman monument in Metropolis, Illinois. My wife snapped this shot of me with our dog, using my first digital camera, a 1-megapixel Kodak DC3200, with cautioning from me: "There's a delay between when you press the button and when you'll hear the shutter click. Don't move 'til you hear the click."

I could do some pp now to improve the image, but the slight tilt and flare seems to dramatize confronting the big super guy.

Has anyone else ever wondered as I have, with no zippers, laces or buckles, however does he get those super-tight boots on and off? Maybe they are made of stretchy rubber. Did Superman's mommy train him to always wear his rubbers?

Not only was he fastener deficient, he had to change his clothes in a telephone booth!

Walt, I believe you may be forgetting that, "He's Superman." How can you have any doubts? )

The first group are all so happy that the baby finally went to sleep... they're so good when they're asleep, they all look so relieved. Possibly they look like that because they've all been smoking pot; or perhaps have been relieved of some digestive disorder.

The elf seems to be saying, "Come here, little girl, I'll give you candy!" (q.v., Jethro Tull, "Aqualung": "Eyeing little girls, with bad intent, yeah.").

I suppose very small statues are included: note the angel on the left in back - I think she's the nonconforming freethinker, the sort who questions authority.

I think that figurines count as "mini-statues."

Indeed Walter: especially small ones that cost $280.00 (you left the price tag on--was that for insurance purposes?)....

Sculptures such as this are made in large numbers to tempt well-heeled tourists, but nevertheless they are interesting and show enough imagination, skill and hours of labor to be worth admiring.

Definitely! It's sand sculpture! Pretty good too!

New Sculpture at the entrance of Rietvlei Nature Reserve, no doubt connected to World Rhino Day and the plight of these magnificent creatures
