Friday Shoot Out

I was so happy when I learned that the subject this week was metal! Driving around town, I took quite a few pictures of interesting metal things, but I've been patiently waiting for just the right time to show you this work of art!

It's attached along a very large wall on the front of our public library.

The first time I saw it, I was enthralled. It speaks to my imagination through books.

Check out the details.


I will be posting the rest of my shoot out pics over the next couple of days, but I felt that this was special enough to show alone. Have a wonderful weekend!

LOVE it! I would have been just as enthused to discover that.

Your photos do it justice, I felt like I was right there - minus the heat, since I am back in MI. Ahhhh, 64 degrees F.
