Skipping stones

These are photos from different angles, and of different water levels, of bronze sculptures of two boys skipping stones. They were along the Mihe River in Shouguang, Shandong Province, China (I’ve shared others that were in the same general area before: Children Playing, Playing Go; and explained that this area was under construction when last I was there.)

Fall is racing away from me and it is looking less and less likely that I will be able to get away for my semi-annual trip to China. I wanted to get over to Shouguang and see how the construction has progressed. I know there was another major typhoon last month that caused major flooding.

I miss getting away for a while, fall always gives me itchy feet, but the upside is that my son was able to come here for a visit at the end of September, and may be back again for another soon.

For Sculpture Saturday, hosted by Mind over Memory and while not exactly brazen I’m also linking to Weekly Prompts Photo Challenge: Brazenly Bronze, because to me these meet the criteria of “the types of bronze sculptures that you find soul inspiring and lifelike”. I just love the way they incorporated the children playing and the landscape of the river together.
