Weekly Photo Challenge: ABANDONED

Even made of marble, these handsome creatures are subject to the hardships of time and circumstance. True, they’ve ended up at the small but delightful Mount Holyoke College Art Museum, but in rather crowded circumstances:

    Close quarters indeed. But imagine all the conversations they get to eavesdrop on! šŸ™‚

    Amazing how alive the armless, headless woman seems! I wonder what they all get up to when no one else is about…

      So true, Pauline. Perhaps it’s her powerful stride, and how her draperies flutter in her wake —
      An interesting “wonder.” Do you think they look down upon us in more senses than one?
      (I hope you are all recovered from misbehaving sinuses!)

      • Pauline says:

        I’m of the mind that everything has a spark of consciousness, maybe not as we think of it as it relates to ourselves, but there’s a thread of awareness in everything. We simply don’t make the effort to listen or see beyond what we expect. (That’s the royal use of “we” by the way. There are those who do.)

      • Touch2Touch says:

        Yes, but few.
        I know I need to remind myself all the time. Which I don’t. šŸ˜¦
