    1. Thanks Allyson. It was taken at the Red Rooster Winery in Kelowna, who bought it after it attracted some negative attention and vandalism in its original location: a public space in Penticton. I love the idea of nudity AND ‘baggage’. The things we carry really can’t be seen…

      1. I have a friend who’s a photographer in Penticton, Allison Howard. I’ll have to direct her to your shot. She may know of it. Also … I know we’re supposed to be wordless here, but just curious — did the statue have a title?

        1. It’s “The Baggage Handler” by Michael Hermesh. Affectionately known as ‘Frank’ — the statue, not the sculptor! ;)
          Your friend will be familiar with it if she’s in Penticton. I’ll be curious to know what she thinks!

    1. Are you speechless, Steve, or just following wordless rules? ;)
      Or maybe you’re having breakfast… (if so, oops, sorry about that)

        1. I don’t know Steve, but I have to say, I thought his message was very clever. If he didn’t intend to be “wordless,” maybe he shouldn’t admit it. :)

          Just forwarded you a message from photographer Allison Howard, a friend from Penticton, about the whole sad story of the statue “Frank.”

          1. Oh I’m pretty sure Steve knew exactly what he wasn’t saying. He’s clever like that. ;)

          1. More of a klutz, Carin. I don’t see rules, I bump into them, sometimes I trip over them or break them, sometimes I swallow them.
            I thought wordless Wednesdays was a play on words.
            I love the statue, the installation, that you took a picture of it.
