Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Metal

Cee’s challenge for the week is metal. Click on the link here to see the rules and more photos.

For my foto entry, I have a collection of modern sculptures from the Modern Wing of the Chicago Art Institute made from different metals. Hope you like them.

    Cool interpretation. I’ve always heard that Chicago has some great museums. I haven’t made it there yet, but it’s on the list.

    Even if I don’t play chess … I wouldn’t mind a chess board like that. Stunningly beautiful and if I had garden big enough I would get that metal house too.Chicago has everything .. and everything they have is good – Number ONE in my book.

    You definitely have to see Chicago. The best time to come is during warmer months of course, you’ll enjoy the museums, neighborhoods, festivals, etc.

    I know that first set of silverware is a conversation piece. I am afraid the second set will get stuck in my throat. The horse? I think it is pretty obvious.

    I know …. one of the reasons why I like Chicago .. the food – one of the best food cities in the world. Too old to start at the circus again. 65 this year … I leave that to the young and hungry – and I enjoy being their paying guest.
