Nature. Funny sometimes….

I have been taking a few photos of different subjects, but I saw something that really shows that nature just doesn’t get Art. I have a statue of a boy that was once a fountain, we unearthed it again when we cleaned up one of the garden beds, scrubbed it clean and white, and it is sitting near the garden until we can work out what to do with it. From the back, it looks like the boy is sitting (uncomfortably) on a log or tree stump. As it is white, when it changes with any addition to it, the addition really stands out.

Here, there is a moth:

nature doesn't get art...

closer up it doesn’t look any better:

Pigeons attack statues, they sit and err, mark them, but I bet that one has never pretended to be a fig leaf…
