Odd Shot Art in the Park

The Washington State Arts Commission has an extensive program of Art in Public Places and it is not uncommon to see a variety of sculptures in parks around the state. We saw a number of these pieces as we walked the 60 mile route of the Breast Cancer 3-Day Walk in the Seattle area earlier this month. This one in particular seemed very apropos to the occasion--resembling the "porta-potty squat"--an exercise very popular at the pit stops along the way.

Nice choice and whoever made the work, it's beautifully done.
Oddly I've just been to Julie at Sidney Eye where she has a couple longing in chairs similar to this.

What a pose and so ummm "earthy"! Is that the word? (Sorry! Laughing here!) But it presents very artistically!

Here is mine for this week! Amazing where you can find odd things!

I love this! Actually, it doesn't look as if it can stay upright.

I've finally got my act together, and I have an Odd Shot up this week.

Now that's an odd and funny shot! Most unusual sculpture. Great capture!

I'm still have trouble with my connection so you may get this twice.

Ah ha, I recognize that port-a-potty squat, aka Honeybucket hunch! Great catch, Katney.

My silly shot is up a little late today (technical difficulties): http://inexplica.blogspot.com/2008/09/proceed-with-caution.html

Porta Potty squat is a perfect description!

"Louis" is very late in letting you know he posted his Odd Shot, another in his series of the Urban Art on Albany Point.
