Ripley's Believe It Or Not, here in Grand Prairie, recently added some giant metal sculptures, including this one being examined by a youngster. Canon 20D, 17-40L.

Now you've piqued my curiosity, too, about using car bumpers. I'll have to stop by Ripley's and ask. Let you know later.

That's a very impressive image. And according what you say there are more of these metal sculptures! Please allow us to see some others if your way crosses there again.
Bravo!

Interesting sculpture, and a very nice photo. I see you had a good, cloudy day for it. Wouldn't I hate to try an exposure in full sun!

Very interesting sculpture, WalterC

Since you mentioned bumpers, I thought you might like to know about the Cadillac Ranch in Amarillo, Texas.

Hmmm... looks a lot like one at the science place in downtown Dallas. Same artist, I suppose.

Do I have a shot of it...?

Yeah, sort of. I did a bit of post processing.



Can you tell?

Yes, it look identical to the one you photographed in Dallas. Here's another.
