A very beautiful and unusual sculpture and you captured it brilliantly, Ryan! The snow even enhances its beauty. Greetings, Anne P.S. YS for this one!

Thanks Nicolas, Dana, and Anne! Just imagine if the eye would turn to look at you, then start hopping down the steps to get you...

Nicolas, I think it would take a telephone pole to poke this eye. Anne, an extra thank you to you. :)

Oh, how FUNNY! That is just the most unusual shot ever!

Thanks Kim! But...not funny: spooky! It's a spooky scary giant eyeball.

:D)) - wow - I love this! I'm assuming this is a sculpture park / museum? (and not that the Jolly Green Giant lost his glass eye ! ) once again I sure wish you took 3D pairs, though!

and so if it started to roll down the stairs as you were walking up, could it be thought of as truly 'Staring You Down'? :D

Thanks Kamaly! Yes, it is a sculpture park, although most of the pieces are not quite so literal as this. Maybe one day I will learn about 3D. :)

Ryan, have you heard of a game called ingress? These photos are surrender being used for the game (and have been for a while) wasn't sure if you were aware... If you have an android device you should definitely check it out though!
