@Lorraine: Thank you, Lorraine!

Chris from South Jersey, United States

wonderful details - it is always so amazing to me that in nature and art there is beauty far away and beauty up close and in the details.....

13 Jun 2009 12:01pm

@Chris: Thanks, Chris; attendance was light, allowing me to get up close and personal w/the help of my 18-200.
Each face is different and there are so many statues ... very moving.

Betty from New Jersey, United States

The emotion in the faces moves me. Bravo, Judy.

Marion from Nanaimo, BC, Canada

This duo shows wonderful detail of this very expressive statue. Have a good walk Judy. We have been in the 80's all week. Love the smells of fresh hay, barbeques, flowers etc., but the cottonwood is flying and oh my, my allergies :(

13 Jun 2009 1:06pm

@Marion: Thank you ..... the statues are each different.
We walked a little over 1/2 mile this morning but tonight may go to Sam's Club to walk inside. the heat and humidity are oppressive w/little to no breeze here. .... Oh, I remember the cottonwood when we were at Lake Powell ... the only place we've seen it or had it tickle our noses! xx

Susan from Fort Lauderdale, FL, United States

Beautiful shots Judy...that place is just so striking......and somber....

@Susan: Thanks for your support, Susan, and I hope your physical therapy will help your back!
I can almost see your pretty 'footsies' ... <grin> ... walking tonight may be at Sam's Club for some A/C!

@tyan: Glad you got away ... breaks are good for us. I had one too. <grin>
I'm doing very well, thank you. Walking daily, but otherwise taking it easy. Mike is doing an admirable job with meals (and I'm letting him do it). ♥

Krisu from Tampere, Finland

Hope you're getting better? I've been away, too, so lots of photos and (old) news to catch up. Hugs and hugs and hugs to you sweet lady!

Wonderful close ups and details on these incredible pieces of work!! It is great to hear from you and know you are out walking! Keep up the great work and keep recovering!

@Scott Schilling: Thank you, Scott, for your comment and your encouragement!

Barbara from Florida, United States

I like how you have split the image to give up close details, especially the face. Wonderful documentation of the memorials. What type of material was used, a form of cement?
Taking a walk indoors at one of the big box stores is a great idea. Stay cool!

14 Jun 2009 2:04am

@Barbara: I truly don't know what the material is, Barb, I couldn't reach it to feel it.
Tonight we did the neighborhood again as it wasn't too oppressive, but the 'big box' option if there!

Magda from Vancouver, Canada

Great detail in both images. Nicely done Judy!
