  2. Hi Belita!! Three great shots for this week's theme. Frenier's dog sculpture is wonderfully crafted, you can see his fine attention to detail. I most definately agree with you on the second one.....those cats DO look like owls!!! Lovely shot of the statue of St Elizabeth, it has a great position among the trees.

  4. Hi, Belita! What wonderful statues. I love the photograph of the bronze dogs and the colors in it. The stone sculpture in the middle is just fabulous! So creative, and yes, I see owls too. A beautiful statue of St. Elizabeth; that is my Confirmation name so I am partial to her. Gorgeous greens to set off the bronze.

  6. Hi Belita, I love the bronze sculpture of the dogs. One of them reminds me of our beloved dog that we lost in May. I love the originality of the cat sculpture. Beautiful statue of Hungary's saintly queen.

  7. Hi Belita. Your dogs are certainly the very cute sausage dog or dachshund variety and such great details.

    I agree the Cats looks more like owls, lovely none the less.

    I am not much clued up on Saints but a very lovely statue.

    As per usual your entries have that special Belita touch. :-)
