A composite of statue man doing one of his patented moves. I'll be trying for a shot tomorrow too, but just in case, heres wishing everyone a Happy Holiday!
A special Christmas Eve rule breaker today, as I usually restrict width to 750px. To retain some of the detail on this one, I pushed it out to 900px.
I've recently turned off comments for a variety of reasons, the biggest of which is that I haven't really had time to take many photos these days, and therefore get few comments. This means that largely, I just fight spam. You may still email me at the contact address if you wish.
This is an interesting composition. You've handled the silver body paint well, a tough material to photograph by itself, and the reflection captured in the performer's sunglasses has me asking what does he see? Wish there wasn't such a bright white diamond in the top middle of the frame from the crossing of the awnings--makes my eye go right to it.
This statue was there last year too, wasn't he? Seems like you had some pictures of him before.
Does he call himself Statue Man? I think of him as a robot man, but I've never seen him in action - he's usually just standing there when I go by.
He's been around for a few years I believe, but these are my first shots of him. You might be remembering someone else?
I'm not sure if he calls himself statue man, but others do I believe. I found an article about him versus the City of Portland, which you can read here.
