January 2009 Theme Day – Best Shot of 2008

Posted by Jackie on January 1, 2009


As it is January 1st, it must be another Theme Day! This time it is our best photo from 2008. Some people are quite creative about this one – reshooting one they really liked, or posting someone else’s photo from another daily photo blog, or running a competition so that the January 1st photo is the community’s favourite, or putting up a never-before-seen photo that they’d been saving for the occasion. Me, I’ve shown this photo before, but as I put it on the blog on a Saturday and I seem to have fewer visitors at weekends, I thought I’d give it another airing as I really like it and would like some more people to see it. It’s a large sculpture called “Tools for the Shaman” by Jake Harvey, and can be found in the little hidden sculpture garden round the back of the library at Glasgow University.

I’m away for a few days for the New Year, so won’t be able to respond to comments till next week. Thank you though for visiting and commenting, and I wish you all a very happy 2009!

    I’ve looked at the largest size and I still say it looks like fuzzy stone! 😉 Wonderful textures!

    Happy theme day!

    I love the texture in this, virtually tactile (did I just say that? 😉 )

    Happy new year to you and all yours

  3. The pieces are lovely although I’d love to see a shot that gave it scale too!

    I hope you are having a great break, and that 2009 turns out fantastically well for you.
