Not Deep

"I must be a mermaid, Rango. I have no fear of depths and a great fear of shallow living."
Anaïs Nin 1903-1977

 I found this fearful mermaid in Las Vegas where shallow living is an art form.


This week’s Corner View theme is statues. To see more statues from around the world wander over to some of these blogs. Thanks Jane and Joyce!

  1. Pretty good! I actually met a nice tourist the other day who asked me if what was at Le Louvres was real. I had to tell him "this is not Vegas..."

  4. WOW- Don this is a beautiful fountain! I so love how you captured the water below and above. Not sure if I ever thanked you for finding my blog and leading me to yours. I love to see what I can learn from others and their camera.
    I got a kick out of your comment about the "cage" for the cardinal. Smile... Would you believe that little stand for my tomatoe plants managed to stay out all winter? I forgot to pack it away. Enjoy! xo
