Ancient #GreekSculpture  has always been one of my favorite things from childhood onwards. Until the last few years, short of looking at copies, I had no real way to appreciate the #3D  quality of #Greek   #art  . Luckily, #3Dmodels  are starting to become more common. Until the day comes that I can see the originals in person, this will suffice for me. #ArtemisionBronze   #Zeus   #Poseidon   #Athens

One of my favorite #Rodin  sculptures, the #AgeofBronze . Rodin was accused of casting this statue from a live model as the realism was too convincing to the critics. Rodin was vindicated as the public came to see the statue for themselves. Rodin also released photos of the Belgian soldier who posed nude for the sculpture to prove he'd not copied the man from molding. #malenude   #NationalGalleryofArt   #3Dmodel   #WashingtonDC

It's disappointing that our #senators  who claim to represent the average citizen are so out of touch with reality that they seem to think that anyone can afford the skyrocketing prices of #housing , #food  & #utilities and get awfully bent out of shape when people complain about their lack of #empathy . Of course, this isn't a new thing. #ShameOnWashingtonDC

I enjoy the sculpture of #Rodin  and like that this is one of his masterpieces available for download & printing. Nothing against photographs, but they can't truly communicate the 3-dimensional qualities of #sculpture . #MuséeRodin   #Paris   #3Dmodel

Well... I guess this blows the whole idea of quaint, natural beauty out of the water. Even our great grandparents' photographers had their beauty (Photoshop) skills. #photography  
"Photoshopped" photos may be everywhere these days, but retouching images to make them look nicer has been around since the early days of photography -- it

A little part of me dies when I read stories like these about #art  being damaged by #idiot   #tourists . Talk about the proverbial #curseandblessing  that #tourism  is for #archaeology   #history  and #landmarks .

Ha! I'm so loving this! #art #print #Japan
Centuries-old Japanese ukiyo-e have received a delightful update, transformed into animated scenes that sometimes include surprising, modern imagery.

Brian Finkelstein's real life encounter as a suicide hotline counselor was humorous and compelling. It sucked me in so completely that I had to sit in the car at Wal-Mart during a thunderstorm as I had to know how it ended. Rarely does something get my attention and keep it so completely. Mr. Finkelstein's story spoke to me as few do; his story is about people like you or me. #PRI   #MPR   #theMothRadioHour   #stories   #reallife

Call all fans of flight! According to NASA, it's National Aviation Day today (Aug. 19) and the space agency wants you to celebrate the technological marvel that is flight with a photo social media campaign.

I choose home life to the nightlife
Introduction
I'm a youngish middle-aged bear who has found increasingly that I prefers staying home to at the same couple of local gay watering holes. I was always the odd-man out when it came to what interested me and I've stopped trying to find a connection where none existed.

I'm a history and art buff. I try to watch all the documentaries I can get my hands on and I read as much as possible. I also enjoy SciFi and humor now and then. One of my favorite genre's is horror, not the slasher-porn stuff but more like the tension-filled stuff from overseas.

I love photography. I've been expanding my love of photography with 3D modeling in the last year. I'm becoming somewhat good at it but I have a long ways to go as I'm completely self taught.

I am single. I've been looking here and there online but haven't seen or met any men that have the right magic or chemistry. The majority of guys online are looking for one thing and while that's great, I find that it's not as satisfying for me as it used to be. I'd rather sitting nude on the couch with a bowl of popcorn and good documentary than having some slippery, kinky encounter (but that is only if I'm not with the right guy -- then I reserve the right to change my mind).

I found that for a small town it is fairly good-sized as flea markets go. There is a lot of trash and treasures (what is what is up to each persons interpretation) mixed together all over the place. The Four Seasons Flea Market occupies what must be at least two former storefronts plus the whole basement under them. There is a lot of stuff to comb through and pick around. It is a surprisingly clean place considering all the merchandise. The prices are about what I would have expected around the area. Don't expect to come here and find the Mona Lisa for a song--what you'd expect to pay in larger towns and other communities applies here too. After all, this is a business and the days of nickel & dime prices for places like this are a distant memory for even the most die-hard optimists. The prices seemed a bit high on some things but not bad on others. The lady at the register was willing to barter a little on some items depending on who was selling them. I'd say that as long as you come to the Four Seasons Flea Market with a realistic set of expectations, you shouldn't leave disappointed. I myself will be returning a few more times as I saw plenty of nice collectibles hiding on the shelves.

On a lark, I dropped in on Olivia's mid-afternoon today to sightsee and shop a little if anything caught my interest. The staff was quite pleasant and didn't have the attitude of a person wishing they could work anywhere else. They were professional, discretely inquiring if there was anything in particular I was looking for, then left me alone to wander at my leisure. They never made me feel uncomfortable when I settled on my purchase and didn't try to push unnecessary extras. I think I was more nervous about the other gentlemen than anything else but as the custom, nobody approached anyone else unless they'd walked in together, joking about visiting Olivia's. Aside from being exiled to a small industrial park on the eastern outskirts of Tea and having shorter business hours than many gas stations (not their fault -- you can blame uptight city and county officials under pressure from know-it-all religious conservatives) there is nothing to dislike about Olivia's. Word of advice: if you park at the back of the building but are not coming in for the theaters, you need to come around to the front door. The back door is strictly for the theaters.

Not impressed. Dyson has a strict policy about acceptable practices and requiring a $60 "deposit" before Fonder will even look at my vacuum while under warranty isn't one of them. My Dyson had been to Fonder just four weeks before today and the repair man made a point of emphasizing that he'd cleaned the filters and vacuum before letting me pick it up. As it turns out, no he didn't. When I showed up today to drop off my Dyson for service again, that's when Fonder tried to spring the $60 deposit requirement on me. I walked out with my vacuum and contacted Dyson who quickly sent me to another business. I will never take any of my business to Fonder when it comes to Dyson and if you read this, just beware of their sneaky double-dipping policy.

Fawick Park is one of those overlooked gems that everyone drives by. It sits between two viaducts going in and out of downtown Sioux Falls so the rumble of traffic fades and rises constantly. If you don't know exactly where to look and fail to ask a local, it's easy to miss. Once you do find it, parking is on the street but make sure you feed the hungry meters. There is a full-sized cast of Michelangelo's "David" with no fig leaf, just the way the original was made. David has been a presence in downtown Sioux Falls since the early 1970s when he was placed here and had a virtual jungle planted around him for the sake of conservative decency. Eventually the jungle gave way but not so much because opinion had changed as it was found that Fawick Park had been the former site of a coal gasification plant that left a toxic legacy. The entire park had to be literally dug out and hauled away. The park was eventually rebuilt but with David turned to look towards the West and downtown and moved closer to the street since his old spot was now in a floodplain. In spite of the traffic noise, Fawick Park is a pleasant enough park but just be aware that a few people hanging around the park tend to make photographers uncomfortable at times even when they are plainly shooting the replica of David.

You can't beat the price for gently used furniture. Granted some of it looks a little dated, but it isn't anything that a little paint could fix.
