Two Things Symmetrical/Abstract

False alarm, and I am glad as I really like blogging. Because my son needs broadband for a new game he has got for his birthday, a compromise has been reached whereby the computer connection is removed during the day so I can't idle my time away. (I wasn't just pretending just to fish for any compliments, but any are gratefully received lol )

Great! I can use some more of my pictures of the North York Moors for this.

Here are two otters (but parred down and containing wicker lines) so abstract representations facing each other (so symmetrical) at the North York Moors Visitors Centre. Some dodgy plastic bag gremlin in the background (which I didn't notice at the time) reminiscent of the chocolate wrapper in a recent flower picture of mine. Easy to see why some people find ghosts in photos; if you were short sighted this could easily be a shrouded ghostly figure wandering across the pasture.

I love these open air sculptures that people are putting up all over the place just recently. We have a country park near us that has a sculpture trail and at the kid's school somebody has carved an owl at the top of an old tree.

yay - so is the plastic thing symmetrical or abstract?
you are just fated to blog. so glad, Bev, I think john.go was into a decline at the thought of your disappearance. LOL
I waste time online - i play very awful games on Facebook and don't do all the lovely artistic creative things I should or the housework, more to the point... and at the moment am not checking marking. Excuse was I answered a query from someone on my team and then got notifications of your comments. So your fault for distracting me.

Glad you back, tho you never really left. Isn't life fun?!
Compromise is good.
Nice interpretation for 2things. I need to get to work or I'll miss this one too.

send back the flowers, if you are stayin'


ps i thought these where milk chocolate prarie dogs,but them i am american

John, I did wonder whether these could really be counted as abstract, but from your comment I can see that they could be, because these forms could either be very English wicker otters, or conversely chocolate prairie dogs, from an American view point lol

So they are definitely abstract and I hope that counts for me in The Two Things, because I take it seriously LOL

John, I did weedle some flowers out of you on a previous posting LOL

Symmetrically abstract otters playing soccer with a plastic bag. Can't get any more abstract than that. This was a fun one, I'd like to revisit this one again.
