Zen Monday: #155


Zen Monday is the day you experience the photo and give us your thoughts rather than me telling you what I think the photo's about.

Just share your thoughts in the comments as they come to you. Here at PDP, we accept all breeds screeds creeds.

I feel better about Monday already!

Oh, my!
For a moment there, Petrea, I thought you'd come in secret to Europe and had let loose your camera in Rome or Athens.
Could this really be America? I gasp in awe, my senses reeling. Such taste! Such elegant refinement. A pinnacle of classical perfection such as this renders Parthenon and Pantheon so much kitsch trash. The very Renaissance itself never reached such dizzying heights of ├Žsthetic splendour. The Sistine Chapel? Pah! Michelangelo's David? A pale shadow. Europe bows - indeed geneflucts - at the feet of such a wonder.

Uh..."pied a terrier," possibly?

Shell Sherree said...

Nope, I don't know where to start.

If I had to choose between the Virgin on the half-shell, the plaster swan with green feathers all askew, or the carnival prize dog, I'd choose ...none of them!

" OK, Let's get this fountain filled with water. Then the Holy Gal is going to turn the water into wine. Think the California Gold Rush of 1849 was big? You aint seen nuttin' yet."

Some garden statuary is more lively than others...

I didn't know my Italian relatives had moved to Pasadena.

I can't tell if the dog is real or stuffed, but it looks like it's seeing a vision and must consult with the blessed oracle.

Desiree said...

There, but for the grace of God...


my vote is for pied a terrier

Our lady of...what's with the dog? Seems like you've got everything in this... an amalgamation of plant ornaments and religion.

Ms. M's comment made me realize that it's hard to tell if the dog is real or not! I hadn't thought of that. It's a stuffed toy. When I saw it, I didn't know if a child had placed it there (sweet) or an adult (odd, at the very least).

You people made me laugh, starting with the "Diveatribe" and on through the day. Many thanks.
