Men in Trees



I saw this guy standing near the side of the road in front of a local tree service company not too far from where I live.

Is he made of wood, I suppose so. Funny statue.

He looks larger than life.

Darla said...

He looks thirsty, lol.

Ms. Moon said...

Very cool.

Leif Hagen said...

Nice to find some art among the trees!

Kaori said...

He looks very buff ;-)

Birdman said...

Ha! At first look I thought those were pigeons at his feet. Better get my eyes checked.

He looks ready to go.

great carving!

Quite unusual and eye-catching. Tree trimming is very dangerous work. Especially if you don't know what you're doing. We hired a guy one time who scampered around shirtless and shoeless way up top...found out later, while working for another person, he fell and broke his back!

I'd hire him!

I am with you on having a hot day. It is 23┬║ here now and that seems even colder. More snow if forecast for tomorrow when the kids go back to school.

If the guy was carved with a chain saw, the carver did a good job.

I though he was there to paint the fence behind him. I hope he doesn't cut down any trees.

be Well, be Happy Lois.
warm Hugs,

Hi Lois - re your comment on Cedar Key: The girl was acting bored; a typical adolescent...she got turned off immediately when she was not the center of attention. It was pretty funny, actually!

I'm impressed that a tree service would present a big piece of public art to the community like this. Good for them.

How very odd -- he seems to be rooted there like the trees around him.

This is great -- love it!

I think he's on his way to lunch.
