“Life imitates art far more than art imitates Life.”
— Oscar Wilde
This week, find inspiration in a piece of art. Then, imitate it. As I went through my photos I realized my children and I have stood or sat with statues quite often over the years, blending in to make them feel a part of our photos. My children are hanging out with the cowboy, just taking a little rest, in an early 80s photo. You can probably tell by the cigarette hanging from his mouth. This cowboy was part of Story Town when the adventure land played a big roll in Lake George during the summer months. This park is now the Great Escape Adventure Park, Story Town plays a very small role, if any today.
While visiting my daughter in California we visited La Jolla, checked out the seals on the beach and then strolled through town. I had to stop for a photo shoot with a Dr. Seuss character and assist him with his tray.
Last summer while visiting Mystic Seaport, CT I noticed the runner, John Kelly, and his dog. I decided to join them in their run. We didn’t get very far.
Living in the moment and enjoying life! That is one of the reasons we pose with the statues and allow them to be a part of our enjoyment. Why not have some fun, be silly, and laugh. Isn’t that what life is all about – enjoying the adventure. Do you ever stop for a photo shoot with statues or other interesting artistic creations?
