  1. I love outdoor sculptures - the diver and motherhood were my favs.

  2. What a diverse collection of sculptures.

  3. Beautiful sculptured pieces...I love the graceful curves and the unique expressions. Thanks for sharing, and for visiting my blog.

  4. Aren't those delightful! I'm fascinated with sculpture.

  5. Thanks to everyone for leaving comments on today's post. Many of the small towns near my home have sculptures along their main streets. I've promised myself that I'll spend a sunny day with my camera, capturing them for future Saturday Snapshot posts. Won't that be fun?

  6. Thanks for calling my attention to these sculptures, Sandy. I'm not familiar with any of them.

  7. Judy, there are lots of interesting sculptures in downtown Auburn and in Puyallup. When we're driving by in our cars, the streets and sidewalks just zip by and we miss so much. You and I should take a walk through both towns on a sunny autumn day and take a closer look.

  8. Wow, some really cool sculptures! Wonderful that both places have such nice sculpture exhibits outdoors.

    Thanks for sharing! And for stopping by my blog -
