WEEKLY PHOTO CHALLENGE: SCALE
I searched through my archive of photos and came up with a few that I feel fit this weeks challenge.
AMISH SCHOOL HOUSE & BUGGY
Not far from the hustle and bustle of city life live the Amish of Lancaster County, Pennsylvania. These deeply religious people shun the conveniences of modern society to live a simpler life where transportation is a horse and buggy and horsepower really means horsepower. The Amish children are taught in a one-room schoolhouse.
The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, is where the 1883 Renoir painting titled
Dance at Bougival resides. It was one of a series of three paintings Renoir did of couples dancing. In
Dance at Bougival The couple twirl in an outdoor cafe scene near Paris. This is the painting that has been brought not so much to life, but to three dimensions and bigger than life, by artist J. Seward Johnson. His 20 foot tall bronze depiction of the dancers in Renoir’s painting graced PPG Plaza in 2014.
40 FT YELLOW DUCK
The first U.S. version of the 40-foot-tall rubber duckie that’s made a splash in harbors from Hong Kong to Sao Paulo since 2007 appeared in Pittsburgh last year at Point State Park to the delight of thousands.
