This is really a beautiful statue. She looks like she can step down and walk away any minute.

Raven said...

That is a nice statue. I bet that cost a lot of money. Nice picture.

Lovely Denise. If you'll email me at backyardboutique@aol.com, maybe we can work out a time for lunch one day.

Magical little spot. And when I clicked on it to enlarge the photo, I liked it even better - how sweet that she's sipping from a seashell!

Mary said...

What a pretty fountain! The statue is really lovely.

I love this Denise! It's wonderful. You captured the essence of the statue very well - very nicely composed.
Some patina on it!

Judy said...

Beautiful photo! Not just the statue (lovely patina, I like the detail of the shell she is drinking from, and the way her eyes seem to be looking at you above it - maybe she is ready to drop it and run?) but all the textures of the bricks and plants.
Thank you for sharing!

Cool photo, the nymph is extra skinny, they need to provide more nymph friendly food.

The Nymph seems to be inviting us into her very own Watery World. Cool Fountain.

That is very pretty and a clever choice for WW..

Mojo said...

If I could keep company like that I might not mind being turned to stone. She is a lovely creature.

I wonder how one goes about becoming a satyr?
