This week was my choice for the topic! I picked “juxtaposition” because 1) I absolutely LOVE the word, and 2) I thought it was a challenge that could be interpretation in a bajillion ways. I had no preconcevieved idea of what I was going to do for it. The word just came into my head when I read that the choice was to be mine this week.
I took this picture this past weekend in Denver. When I took the picture I was only taking it because it tickled my fancy. I thought it would be way cute to have my little friends copy the big blue bear’s pose, all lined up. Only after I got home and was going through and catalogueing the photos from the weekend did it strike me that this would make an excellent and FUN submission for this weeks “Photo Friday”. So, here is “Big Blue Bear and Little Friends Peeking”!
From L to R that’s the Big Blue Bear, Abner, Stephanie, Colin, and Clare — in juxtaposition! 🙂
This Big Blue Bear is peeking in the windows of the Denver Convention Center. His body is made up purely of planes. Pretty cool. Designed by a computer.
The sculpture was unveiled in June of 2005 and is called “I See What You Mean”.
They are all interested in what’s going on in there! 🙂

Welcome to CordieB of the blog “Looking Through The Window“
(Jan’s entry – A Curious State of Affairs – uses a cool online tool called a Hockneyator to create a collage. You should check it out and snag that link to try this tool yourself!)
I’ll add anymore links should I find that there are any more new players out there!
Next week’s topic comes to us from Tina of SkyWindows and is “Religion”.
