If I was going to hitch-hike (what we calling "thumbing a ride," I'd borrow this. I think. It is a thumb, right?

Funky! Nice light here!

About the thumb, I have seen a 12 meter version of this at La Défense...

What a sculpture. The shinny copper without patina makes it really standout. Almost representing a symbol. Perfect focus!

Congratulation!

Gunn said...

CONGRATULATIONS!!!
Well done, and THANKS for "marketing" your city/area so well. (I sell guidebooks etc. and tell people to go and see the area, and sometimes write your webpage on a piece of paper that I give the customer..... mainly to those who are renting a car and will see more than just the capital.)
I look forward to see/ explore more, so do keep up the very good work you have done!
Great artistic image, that goes well for the celebration!
Greetings from Gunn / Norway

Talk about a "Thumbs Up." Sorry, that couldn't be helped! I think that piece could easily go into major production mode, or at least be like the little Oscars Award Statue. A Thumbs Up Award Show, ceremony, I can see it all now. Anyway, a big Thumbs Up to you JM. You deserve it!!!
