Sculpture Saturday

Shedd Aquarium, Chicago

Every week, the blogger at Mind over Memory hosts a sculpture photo challenge. It’s quite free-form allowing bloggers to post photos of any sort of sculpture they like.

I used to go to the Shedd Aquarium once a summer for its Jazzin’ at the Shedd. With CCP Virus I doubt I’ll go this year. It’s a shame because this evening event was so much fun. Held on Wednesday evenings, it was a perfect place to see the mid-week fireworks display. Alas, that too has been canceled. I hope next year it’s open.

If you want to join the fun create a post featuring a piece of sculpture and link it here.

Three Girls Taking Tea : SEpia Saturday 526

Every week Sepia Saturday challenges bloggers to share images based on a photo. This week we’re challenged to find photos inspired by this photo of three women who seem to be having tea or a picnic on a nice summer day.

I went over to Flickr Commons, which features archived images from all over the world and chose these photos.

Seurat could have made a great painting of these folks.

It looks like the 1940s or 50s. This family was in Argentina. Perhaps they were missionaries.
