A bear I would like to have taken home with me.


 I cropped this bear image from a picture of a throw rug hanging up on a wall.  It was taken in Yellowstone in a lodge gift shop near Old Faithful last September.  I enjoyed giving it the sepia look but wasn't sure which one I preferred, color or sepia?  What would be your choice?


Below is the original picture.  Now what I would really have liked would have been to bring that throw rug back home with me. Well, maybe next time!

  1. From my point of view the full colour one works best... but the sepia is nice!

  3. Colour, definitely. The little flashes of red bring the picture to life. But then I nearly always like colour best.

  4. I like the coloured one best, when I first saw the police I thought it was a stained glass window, can you imagine it with the Sun shining though it? XX Don

  6. That bear looks like my old brother Bogart! If I see him I would bring him home too!

  7. The bear rug picture gave your blog an interesting appearance. It made me want to study the rug in detail.... which I did. Not sure which I prefer out of the two versions, but the coloured one grabbed my attention faster so I guess that's the one.

  8. That is so beautiful and this time I prefer the coloured version.
    Bears are so beautiful, big or small. That is one lovely throw rug.

  10. Yes, I agree. That is one bear we all would love to take home with us.

    Have a great day. We are busy working in the yard. After the weeding, we are now mulching... Oh how I love spring.
    Hugs,

  13. A beautiful rug and I like the colours of the pattern which I expect is traditional.I also meant to say that I liked your last header which must have been a piece of native art work.

  21. A nice conversation piece for anyone's home. :) I definitely like the colorful version of the bear. The entire wall hanging looks wonderful in the shop.

  22. I don't much like the sepia look on anything. The colorful shot (original) is best. Probably an Indian motif. I am nuts about American Indian art, and have been since I was a kid and visited Indian reservations with my dad. (Who was an Eagle Scout). Dad had a collection of what we called 'arrowheads' in those days. Archeologists call them 'projectile points.' He collected them throughout his youth spent in Wisconsin. Wisconsin is home to many different tribes. Second largest population of Indians in the US. Arizona (Navahos and other tribes) is the largest.

  23. What a great rug. How could you 'bear' to part with it? ;-)

  24. I prefer the color version over the sepia. You love bears, as evidenced by your trove of teddy bears!!!
