Lonely Statues

The only visitors these lonely statues are seeing are the people who park their cars along the way. Most people walk by them without even seeing them to rush toward the vendors and programs further in the park.

Perhaps because it's cold? I wonder what the statues look like up close.

Is this a fountain?

You're probably right that people probably don't notice the statues as they rush by. I think most of us are guilty of that most of the time.

I like the bricks, the patterns, the circle that captures the statues. People do have a tendency to wear blinders often.

Thank you!

Poor statues ... someone should see them really ... well, at least you did.

Could it be that they've already seen them and now just look at them as part of the landscape, like a tree? Looking at some of the photos posted by Clueless and Fenix, I'd have to say I took a lot of the beauty of Boston for granted, never really stopping to take a second look!

The city with all the different sights reminds me a lot of Wiesbaden, but I think I said that before...

Most of us are always in a hurry not seeing the beautiful things they pass along the way.

Over here in Vancouver Canada a well known artist/photographer placed huge photos of ancient gigantic trees uprooted during a terrible storm in the famous Stanley Park area. They were placed next to a construction site in a busy part of the city. Very few have noticed them or even knew what they resembled.It seems people in general are always in such a hurry to get somewhere they rarely take note of what's happening right where they are.
This is a lovely composition Isadora.
