Beautiful tones and textures captured in this B&W compo!! Interesting to see that modern addition in the frame. smile
Ginnie Hart: Thanks, Steven. I guess the "modern addition" is unavoidable no matter where we go nowadays!
i like how massive this man-sculpture is, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: I know, Ayush. He was well-suited for the job.
Il a l'air de porter tout le poids du bâtiment sur ses épaules.
Ginnie Hart: Exactly, Martine.
Well seen Ginnie, great b/w.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Frank.
Voilà  un costaud qui a la charge de soutenir tout ce poids... toute sa vie ;-)
Bonne journée Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: ...and with never being able to take a break, Pascale!
I love it when they are depicted as such! Great shot!
Ginnie Hart: I know, Elizabeth. Thank you.

A strange concept, based on Atlas, I guess. I like your rendering
Ginnie Hart: One wonders, Lisl! Thank you.

The poor old fella looks to be under pressure here Ginnie..
Ginnie Hart: You can say that again, Chris.

He forgot his "hard hat" again, Ginnie. Finally a sculptor with humour even back than... one might wonder.
For some reason that security camera fits this picture. Great B&W.
Ginnie Hart: HA! I like your imagination, Astrid, as you know. smile Bedankt.
Sculpture très particulière !
Bien vu pour le titre Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Merci, Claudine.
Die mag echt wel even pauze nemen, logisch dat je daar hoofdpijn van krijgt smile
Goed gezien
Ginnie Hart: Good way to make a point that we ALL need a break from time to time! Bedankt, Marjolein.
The camera next to him is a sign of the times Ginnie.

Well done to the USA last night.
Ginnie Hart: The sign of the times, indeed, Bill. And thanks for your congrats!

Hhah!! I though of "Ouch" too even before I saw the title smile A shame that the CCTV camera did not capture the event.
Ginnie Hart: I thought the same about the camera looking the other way, Alan...maybe in embarrassment/shame?

JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
Did he bonk his head on that stone shelf? well, God is sovereign, it was need be smile
funny pic and caption, sister!
Ginnie Hart: I have a feeling sovereign God had nothing to do with this one, Elaine. grin

Looks like he has a bad neck from holding up that building Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: A bad neck, a bad back, a bad head, a bad (fill in the blank), Chad. All of the above.
Atlas: "Oh no, I forgot to put on my pants today!"

CCTV: "That's what I am recording now!"

Ginnie: "..."
Ginnie Hart: BUSTED!
This makes me think of my dear old Dad who would have taken one look at this and said 'I bet that makes his head ache' smile
Ginnie Hart: HAHAHA! Exactly, Brian. smile
Cette statue semble porter toute la misère du monde sur ses épaules. Bon break Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Indeed so, Marie! Merci.

Somebody has to do the hard labour. smile
Ginnie Hart: I guess you're right, Andy. (sigh)
I see the humour in the sculptor and think everyone must get a smile.
Ginnie Hart: Indeed, Mary. All's well that ends well.
I like the strong details you have captured. Friendship
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Ruthie.

If I was him, I would have stepped away long ago. One can't take such cricks into pensionable age.

Great picture.
Ginnie Hart: Good point, Louis! Thanks. smile

It makes him look like he has a headache. Which is no wonder ;-)
Ginnie Hart: No wonder, indeed, Cherry!
he needs a reliever to take over holding up that column for a hundred years or more Ginnie... good image....petersmile
Ginnie Hart: I probably needs a lobotomy, Peter! HAHAHA. Thanks.
That looks like a painful pose, Ginnie. Love how you've captured the textures here.
Ginnie Hart: Beyond painful, I think, Beverly. Thanks.
