|London's metal tree returns to its maker|
Thematic. Made of Steel. Here.
I was heading home from a meeting one dull summer's afternoon when this pink one insinuated itself into my head (here's a red one for comparison.) The rust was somewhat jarring: didn't they rust-proof these things when they were first installed? Did the sculptor know? Did he provide a warranty?
Probably not. And as I took in the odd spectacle of a rust-flecked pink tree, I thought about the steel from which it was made, and how a sad mixture of pink and rust was as far from the steely-grey stereotype as we could possibly get. Maybe that was the sculptor's intention all along.
Your turn: It's been a while since we played the three-words game. Time to rectify that. What are the first three words that come to mind when you see this scene?
"pink alien fingers"
Seeing your metal trees and the earlier post about cellphone towers reminds me that around here we've some fake trees that are actually cellphone towers.
See where I'm going with this?
And here's a few more from around the world...

Looks like even metal trees find a way to change with the seasons, eh?
As for three words...
Rusty leaves linger
Waste of money ;)
