I was wondering how I could work this picture into a post and, thanks to Sue Llewellyn’s Word A Week Photograph Challenge, here it is. A sculpture by Sean Henry entitled Lying Man, cast in bronze and decorated with oil paint, at the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
I couldn’t find any other pictures of people fully reclining in the photo files and I wasn’t about to go out and look for any random bodies lying around so here are a couple of images which involve a bit of semi-reclining. Shown above, a sculpture in the grounds of the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett and, below, an interesting character onboard one of the ships at the Tall Ships Festival at Navy Pier a few years ago.

A few images captured at The Kite Festival in the Chicago Botanic Garden are my contribution to Sue Llewellyn’s Word A Week Photograph Challenge. I have enough trouble trying to fly one kite! How they manage to keep all these flying without getting tangled up is incredible!

Once again, Sue Llewellyn has come up with a subject for her Word A Week Photography Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/a-word-a-week-photography-challenge/ that gives me the opportunity to use pictures that I might not otherwise have shared. Thanks Sue!
I think I could safely bet that you will never, in a million years, guess the title of this sculpture. We came across it while taking a walk through the Frederik Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Created by British sculptor Dame Barbara Hepworth, this interesting piece of artwork is entitled “Summer Dance.”
“Hey, this might look like just a hole in the ground to you but it’s home to me!” A prairie dog on guard in The Badlands, South Dakota.
Yes, folks, I’ll take a picture of pretty much anything, even a hole in the ground. This one just happened to be one dug in our yard when the plumber came to clear the tree roots out of our sewer pipes.
My thanks, once again, to Sue Llewellyn for affording me the opportunity to share some pictures of windows in response to her Word A Week Photograph Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2014/09/10/a-word-a-week-photograph-challenge-window/.
Although I’ve already shown images of some of the windows at the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows on Navy Pier in Chicago in previous posts, I still had a few left that I thought might be worth a look.
I particularly liked the window depicting The Fairy Tale of The Bear Attacking Other Animals created in 1997 by artist Khaim Pinkhasik.
