Weekly photo challenge: Simple

These statues are spread about Waihi.

They represent a time when living here was about the simple things in life.

I really love the first one and the contrast of the statue against modern life.

    1. Thanks. I was really happy with how they turned out – the day was really sunny and it was difficult to see the monitor so it was a real click and hope that I actually got anything in the frame at all…hehehe

    1. Awwww thanks Hook – but these were really luck. I couldn’t see the monitor on the phone from the sun most of the time, so I simply prayed I was pointing it right, and that I actually had the camera on…hehe

    1. Hey Gracie – thanks !!! I like that you like that one, there is something special about that sculpture – it makes me feel…isn’t that what art is all about.

  1. Beautiful post, Jo. We can always chose to appreciate the simple. :) I loved the composition of your pictures, great job!

  2. Nice shots Jo – especially for a phone camera! I always forget that I always have that camera in my pocket! I kind of like the second one – reminds me of childhood and a simpler time.

  3. Simple, yet profound, photos Jo! Love the statue of the mom giving her child a bath in the washtub. Thank you for the pingback.

  4. super jo, it is good to think of those simple times … i grew up with my grandparents who lived on the land … they knew how to recycle everything … it was a very simple life right to the outdoor dunny!

  5. aw, bless you for the pingback Jo!
    much appreciated!!
    i thought i’d commented using my smart phone – but i guess it wasn’t so smart after all :)
    love this post – especially the first image. the b&w makes it so realistic – hard to imagine that there really isn’t a kid in a tub of water!
    thanks for sharing.

  6. Black and white was the color back in the 70’s. At least in my country. I am talking about the TV before according to my mother and I had seen B&W TV. What’s the point? Those pictures remind me of the simple life I left 12 years ago.

There are two things I know for certain. One: Bert and Ernie are gay. Two: I want to hear your opinion.
