Archer in the desert

There's something about this sculpture that I really like. Maybe it's those wonderful circles or the lovely patina on the archer himself. 

The only thing I couldn't decide is whether I like it better in color or black and white. What do you think? Photo taken in February 2013.


  1. I dunno, they both have certain attractive characteristics ... fortunately it doesn't have to be "either - or" but we can enjoy the duo.

    Glad to hear you did well on an Arizona golf course! Sometimes, a bit of a layoff helps. Maybe we forget our bad habits for a bit?

    I played yesterday with about an 8 to 1 ratio: I'd hit 8 bad shots and 1 good one. It was very ugly! :))

  2. I like it in color. The circles give this another dimension, almost like the "Man" by Leonardo with his arms outstretched.

  3. This sculpture is wonderful, I love both versions, b&w is also very artistic and I love the green vegetation around this lovely sculpture in your first shot.


  4. Hello, Halcyon.

     Your work is embraced in your gentleness.
     Sharing a moment of peace.
     It is a joy for all.

     Your heart warm message in the cold.
     I always give mind of thanks to you.

    Have a good weekend. From Japan, ruma❃

  5. I choose not to choose one over the other. I like both for the different aspects they offer.
    The blue is really a magnet for my eyes with the other softer colors around.

  6. I prefer the color version, I think because of the blue circle/sky.

  7. I like the color version best. Great shot!

  8. Hey, nice. Glad to see that you got some time away. Both photos are great, but this might be one of the rare times where I prefer the black and white. The figure stands out more clearly against the background in black and white.

  9. @Jack - I usually like b&w better, but in this case I was leaning more towards the color. :)


Thanks for visiting. I love hearing from you.
