another angel and mellow yellow monday



























known as the general sherman monument, I photographed this as I passed by while riding in a taxi in manhattan the other day. the sun seemed to be illuminating both the figures and what was left of similar colored autumn leaves on the trees in the background, which also happened to create a beautiful backdrop for this sculpture. I thought this could be a perfect mellow yellow way to start the week. 
for more of all things yellow, please stop by drowsey monkey's mellow yellow monday .

They are beautiful. I see they need some touching up though...makes me want to head over there with my gold leaf.

The leaves in the background do take on the color of the general and the angel. Very nice effect.

wow. I have to wonder though whether this sculpture is painted? I can't imagine a yellow patina.

btw, Rupert is not enjoying this snow business at all! Does Priscilla wear booties?
