Very interesting and innovative way to present this statue, Rob. It is always difficult to present someone else art but you have made it yours by adding the timetable behind like they were thinking about going somewhere. Well done!

Sorry, I have run out of green smiles for the day!

Does the combination make sense or have any symbolic meaning? Well, it doesn't really matter since it works so well. The only thing that bothers me is that passepartout inside the nice frame, which although extremely original and I am sure ideal for hundreds of images, seems to steal some of the effect of the stautes dancing in front of the timetable.

Hi Rob. Zeer apparte compositie vooral de achter grond geeft een speciaal effect. zeer geslaagd.

The background makes the statues huge. Nice combined subjects. Wonderful and cute human shapes.
Nice work Rob.

Ha Rob,

Prachtige foto van die lekkere ronde Botero billen.

Ik heb er destijds een gemaakt in Liechtenstein maar die staat niet meer op de site.

A very funny shot,Rob! I love the Botero sculptures (as well as the paintings)! It is a very creative photograph,kind of Dada picture,I would say! I like the non sense expressed here! Very well done! Bravo! Michel

Bonjour Rob,
Sculptures qui changent des règles de Michel-Ange, le corps prend une autre dimension (dans tous les sens du mot).
Il me semble avoir vu ces sculptures à Paris.
Très bon cadrage avec en arrière-plan cet horaire de chemin de fer.
J'aime beaucoup.

hello Rob here are models required of the time of Rodin where the woman was to have roundnesses. It would not have been disappointed by this sculpture.

Beste Rob
Till now I never saw any work of you.. so
I like to say 'so pleased to meet you ' and making you
a compliment on your overall work.. to start with this charming coupple of ''Ballet Dansers' ^_^
Compliment Rob en een fijne Zondag
