Imagine my delight when I happened on this sculpture on our June road trip from Southern Indiana to Orlando, Florida. “The One That Got Away” by Sherri Warner-Hunter greets motorists eastbound on Interstate 24 making a pit stop at a rest area near Chattanooga, Tenn.
I was so excited and a bit rushed by my family wanting to keep moving on down the highway that I made the mistake of getting my shadow on the plaque and the frog close-up. And the turtle you see in the background of the sculpture truly was “the one that got away!” No close-up to show. 😦
Photo of the Week series: Every Sunday in 2012 I will either share a photo from my archives or something new I just can’t wait to get feedback on for future art shows/exhibits.
Blogger participation: My hope is to receive enough input on each week’s photo to later post a Bloggers’ Choice of the Month and wrap up 2012 with a Bloggers’ Choice of the Year.

Love this set of photos… great…
I was thrilled to share them, Rob! Thanks for the compliment!
These remind me of Parque Guell by Gaude in Barcelona. I will need to find this rest stop some day. I think these are wonderful!
They truly are. Check out her website for other locations with her work.
