The even have piggy glints in their eyes 🙂
Probably the light hitting a loose piece of rust, EllaDee! 🙂
One can only ask … ‘why?’, plaintively. 😉
You have not yet given me approval of my final nav area …
Well, I reckon the book’s visible, at any rate 🙂
Love the pigs 🙂 🙂 🙂
Very cute, I thought. Whether I’d go so far as to buy them for my own garden … 🙂
little piggies! who would have thought of such a thing?
I don’t know, Christine – I suspect someone saw cute piglets in some plastic medium and thought it would be fun 🙂
AAwwww love the piggies 🙂
Oh yes, I definitely covert the iron pigs (was this someone’s idea of a metallurgical joke – pig iron?) Love them.
I hope so Trish 🙂
Pig jokes aside, I’m leaning toward the Juxtaposition of new rope, rusty anchor.
It’s terrific, isn’t it – though not new, but the colour of plastic rope is pretty well indestructible, especially in brackish water, which is where I came across this particular anchor. 🙂
Wonderful! I love your entry!
Thanks dear 🙂
I’m a veggie.I need help here.
Sorry love 🙂
“lol” love 🙂
I love those pigs. I would want every one of them. There are several places I can see them lined up.
They’re rally very cute, aren’t they – I was struck by how many poses the mould maker had created, which made it impossible to choose one, but want a whole herd 🙂
I love the simplicity of the twisting rope. Really perfect. Tell us the story behind those fabulous pigs…are they individual works or art or connected in one big piece?
Individual pieces … I’m not sure where the initiative came from – the shop where I saw them is owned by a man who commissions artists and artisans to create ideas he has, or has picked up from overseas trips – but wherever the impetus came from, the artist did a terrific job, didn’t he, creating moulds for individual piggies in a whole herd?
Sweet pink piggies, and I love the colours in your last pic. 🙂
I did too, Sylvia. Its beautiful to see muted and faded colours enhancing each other like that. 🙂
Those pigs!!!!! Is my favorite
One more vote for those adorable little pigs! 🙂
Hmm, it’s a toss up if I like the little piggies best or the anchor and rope…. Luckily for me, you photograph some of the most amazing, intriguing, and twist-on-the-ordinary sights from your journeys!
Just love the piggies. 🙂
(chuckles) – I love how popular the piggies are 🙂
Funny, I find their collective expression somewhat ‘heavy-metallic’. 🙂
