pics of outdoor art

Outdoor art must have very universal appeal or why would it exist?

Over the years I've collected a few favorite shots:

maybe the bright colors


or just watching water flow


I don't know, I'm tired from all this walking



I like odd



This one is about to fall



Refreshing water splash brings a laugh



Oh no, time to go



But the road to nowhere is closed
 



Get outside take some pics but don't forget to check out the ones at Unknown Mami's.

Oh my goodness - - - that  "historic" type eraser with the brush on top to wipe away the eraser shavings is a scream!  I remember when my dad used to USE one like that - - - - well, way smaller of course.

Great line-up of silly pics. Perfect for Fools' Day.

I used one that was from my dad's office when I was a kid.  Your comment just made me realize there might be younger readers who never saw one.
thanks

 Thanks.  I had thought I might announce I won the mega-millions jackpot on Friday as a April Fool's Day joke.  The pics are probably more fun.

I wonder how many people under 30 know what the round thing with the bristles is.

lisleman said...

 Not very many I suspect.
thanks

Ha, that first photo looks like the Red Square :-)

lisleman said...

 Now that similarity did not come to my mind.  After you mention it, I do see what you are saying.  I've never been to Red Square (Moscow one - not some Red Square sandwich shop - right?)
thanks

Belgium or France.  Mannequin (SP) Pis is my clue.  Am I right?

lisleman said...

 Yes you picked the right picture but I had to look-up that name.  I didn't know the name of the famous one which is in Brussels.  Comparing pictures I would say the little guy in my picture is showing off more.  The country for this one is Croatia.
thanks for the informative answer

lisleman said...
