Humm. So you always thought it is a busy place with a lot of people always there as if there is a crazy party going on there. But have you tried it on a weekday or even evening (excluding Fridays)?

Take a look at the pictures to just get an idea. Also notice new additions to allowing sit down in comparatively quite areas.

Larger Than Life statue of Marilyn Monroe – a job well done   Leave a comment

So finally I paid visit to much talked about Larger Than Life statue of Marilyn Monroe by Seward Johnson. I just wanted to take few pictures and was really not that excited. When I started to take pictures I was more absorbed with the people posing my the statue and how they differ from each other. Some shy, some naughty and what not and what not.

Then I came home and started to review the pictures and first time the detail of the statue got my attention. The skirt, the blouse, the under wear, her muscles, the lips, even the mole and the facial expression so real.

We often hear that a lot of times good opportunities seams like a lot of work for most people and they pass on them. After noticing all the detail and the work that possibly has gone in designing and making of this statue, I have to say this is a hell of a fine example of that saying.

Good work Seward Johnson. Keep it up.
