Photo hUnt Saturday - Shiny




This week's photo hunt theme is shiny. Last year, when Meenie was at the Children's hospital, I would often sit under this sculpture to take a few minutes and just breath. Or I would call and update family members. At mid-day, the sun would just shine off the red ball and send color around the room.

That sculpture is sure shiny. I wish I could be there when the sun shines on the red ball, it must be so much fun to chase the reflections!

Oh my gosh! It is indeed a very nice sculpture. And that red ball, I can't imagine how that reflects the whole area when the sun shines on it. Red is my favorite color.
Thanks for the visit.

Oh, I love this photo because of the meaning behind it and the memories you have with it. I'm sure they weren't always good memories, but what a neat statue to take a breather under...

Nice shining ball. Looked like a bowling ball to me. I wondered why nobody took a shot of a shiny bowling ball :)
