The original 'Dock Worker'

I don't know about you, but I often find the story behind the story of some of my photos.  In 2010, I posted this statue that I called The Dock Worker, since the plaque was missing.

On October 4th I posted that I'd been to the October Salon, a visual arts event that's been taking place since the Sixties. Inside as part of one exhibit was this photo that I rephotographed that shows the man who posed for this statue (he's on the left, but I think the fellow on the right may have had some influence, too).

His name, I believe, is Milorad, and he's still active in the art world.




SLEEPING IT OFF

 Seems like this holiday gnome has had one long season....too much holiday cheer. I'll check and see if he's still there tomorrow....
