Looks a little confused as well...not sure where she is going cos she left no footprints to indicate where she has been.

Markers can be useful.
vz-nostalgia: because she lacks the rear end, there is nothing to leave the markers with, Ray. smile

Fossilized perhaps. smile

strange indeed smile the front end looks sort of like an aardvark, with the front legs and body of a bear. a lovely piece of tree sculpture
vz-nostalgia: now it's my turn to ask, Ms. E, what the heck is aardvark? smile
My Visualisation is the toy bird that while rocking dips into a glass of water then springs back up. Striking Picture.
vz-nostalgia: I've never played with those, Martin. smile

I always like the nature sculptures like this strange wooden bird- weatherbeaten, modelled by sun, wind, saltwater, the "sands of time" (nice metaphor, lets think of the sand-glass)-a work in process! Never "forgotten"!- you have presented this bird to us and given him a "footprint" which may be also a print of yourself!

(I like to collect also such, often rotten, forgotten or lost things, to give them names or to tell their life stories. In my corridor there hangs such a collection of some self-found things.)
vz-nostalgia: "which may be also a print of yourself!" Oh, Philine, you stepped on my Achilles' heel without knowing it. smile There was more to the text, one line of which was "...or do I look in the mirror again?..." smile

vz-nostalgia: :
...what does she look for in distant countries?
what does she seek in foreign lands?
who does she wait through light and darkness,
through stormy nights and gloomy days?
It sure is weird but a fine capture VZ, and wonderful imagination too.
vz-nostalgia: oh, I didn't imagine anything, Ron. It was there, standing on the empty beach after the storm, waiting to be discovered. smile
It reminds me of those birds you used to see that would dip into a glass of water. I don't know if you had them in the US. If not you will have no idea what I am on about......
vz-nostalgia: I haven't seen them neither in the US nor in the Soviet Union, Bill. So, I have no idea... smile

Looks vaguely prehistoric, almost as if the dinosaurs burned down rather than just dying out.
vz-nostalgia: Hell knows what happened to the dinosaurs, Martin. That was so long ago. smile
strange bird maybe, great image definitelysmile
vz-nostalgia: wonder, if it would work in reverse as well, Tim, as great bird, strange image. smile

Oh, VZ, my excuses, I thought of your photo skills, never of your figure or face I can only imagine -in a lovely, younger looking way!
vz-nostalgia: Hahahahaha. Oh Ms. Philine, no need to apologize. No special photographic skills were applied to this. What I meant by "looking in the mirror", was not the physical similarities, but rather the weathered wood that has been through a lot of storms and burning suns. smile

vz-nostalgia: oh my, you are an early bird, Ms. Laurie. It is 7 in teh morning, where you are. smile
I was fishing nearby, and felt that I've been watched. Went I turned around I found this "bird" staring at me. smile

How would you know it is missing the rear end? It may be missing the front end wink This thingy looks more human than avian to me. Like in a weird gymnastic pose.

Instead of hair it is growing little trees on top, midle to right.
vz-nostalgia: As the Russian saying goes, the way we see things is determined by the degree of our depravity, Louis. smile
Fine capture of a .. a.. a....................
vz-nostalgia: just let your imagination run wild, Nig. smile
Mas realmente os sentidos são poderes infinitos....Ao olhar para essa foto tenho a impressão que se fixar um momento a mais ela saira andando...Maravilhosa.

beijos
1/2 dog or fox for me.
