In Dayton Ohio we have recently added a series of statuary downtown of people during the normal everyday routine of life.

I hope you enjoy as much as I did walking through a quiet downtown and shooting them.

The first is a builder downtown.

This one is a lady waiting for the bus near city hall.

Included you can see some of the very fine detail involved.

And this guy is creepy.

He looks eerily like me about 20 years ago and about 30 lbs lighter ... and I used to have the same type camera when I was a kid.

Two sightseers.

The husband upclose looks remarkably like Geors Herbert Walker Bush.

All photos taken with a Nikon D50 on aperture priority at f8 with 18-55 kit lens and built in matrix fill flash.

Nothing special as they are largely snapshots, but some very cool statuary.

I hope they have been enjoyed. They have done wonders for the downtown's appearance.

Thanks and thanks.

I may start posting more works here.

The place is trolled to death on the left and you can't get the sheeple to listen to anything that doesn't end in B-B-B-BUT B-B-B-BOOOOSH! so maybe we need to talk about some other stuff.

This post and you blew all the good will you had built by posting those nice pictures.
Just not very smart, are you?

What a jerk...he can't even post something interesting (for a change)...without adding some a$$hole commentary.

[Hondo and Wolfie]We're just trolling along,
Singing their song,
Side by side...[/Hondo and Wolfie]

You two would take a dump in the middle of the Louvre' and think it made you appear cultured.
