Is he with us or ahainst us...that is the byesction.
Bill Phillips: Good to see you back Ray! Hope you are feeling better. You gave us all a fright
Hmmm - it's very different, isn't it...
I don't remember Ogden...
Bill Phillips: Different= horrible grin

Ogden was my "alternative" shutterchance blog. It specialised in ludicrous and simply awful pictures and was great fun for me to do.

An impressive statue, but I cannot see her face.

Morning Prayer - Poem by Ogden Nash

Now another day is breaking,
Sleep was sweet and so is waking.
Dear Lord, I promised you last night
Never again to sulk or fight.
Such vows are easier to keep
When a child is sound asleep.
Today, O Lord, for your dear sake,
I'll try to keep them when awake.
Bill Phillips: I don't think she has a face!

I love Ogden Nash and this one is a delight and so very true grin

Memories - all bad ones!

I can see what you mean about this metal thing, it's a bit spooky really..
Bill Phillips: I don't like it at all.

I miss Ogden. Wish I had the time to revive him

Much clearer today Bill, but the figure looks a little sinister to me. Love the video, very clever.
Bill Phillips: Like something out of Star wars...but the dark side.

I miss Ogden
An aura of mystery, Bill....
Bill Phillips: A creepy sardine Ginnie

Hmmmm.. Its quite spooky. I don't recall seeing it on my visit or perhaps I just walked swiftly past it. It's not very attractive.
Bill Phillips: Hideous Alan

This doesn't quite look like a church figure, Bill
Bill Phillips: I think it is horrible Lisl

Is that 10 years ago..... time flies and we have done silly things meanwhile ha ha ha. That is one shiny lady, Bill.
Bill Phillips: The video I did in 2009......and yes we have and yes she is.

I had tinned sardines for lunch the other day ... they were actually very satisfying.

Yes I well remember Ogden
Bill Phillips: I like a nice sardine. Fresh ones are very good too

He was a legend
It really does look like a Sardine in colour doesn't it, not the most impressive of sculptures. I remember some of the Ogden images but not all, it was around the time I started out on SC I think.
Bill Phillips: Yes it does.

I had fun with Ogden
The metal is beautiful.
Bill Phillips: Sadly the statue isn't grin
So what has changed from Ogden then.
Bill Phillips: Not a lot

It looks slightly scary
Bill Phillips: I don't care for it at all Anne
As you said, Bill - no less intimidating in colour!
Bill Phillips: Nothing very peaceful about it Tom
You had fun with that video - is that a new bench you have sneaked in?
Bill Phillips: I renovated what was there Tom. I had fun when I used to do Ogden. I might revive hime one day
From this angle it looks to be quite large, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It is quite tall. I would guess about 8 feet
