Wordless Wednesday #9

Bob loves photography. To involve him with my blogging, every Wednesday I will post one photo from Bob's Album for Wordless Wednesday. Below is a photo Bob took a couple of weeks ago when he had a trip in Smithers, B.C. Canada. This carved wood statue of a man blowing an alpine horn, commonly referred to as The Alpine Man, is located at the entrance to the main street and has become the town symbol.

Wow, that's really one good picture. Is that a whistle or a pipe?

I always look forward to your WW pictures.

That is a neat shot! I am sure glad Spring is coming, though!

Looks like a lot of work went into that statue. I bet it was COLD when he took that picture too. There's lots of snow around.

I always love to see his photography.

Happy Valentine's Day!

When I saw the picture I thought it was taken in Switzerland ! It's just the alp horns they still use mostly during a festivity. The artist is probably from swiss origin. Again a very good photo !

that commercial is ringing through my head! This does look really cool though!
Happy WW! :-)

I thought it was a tribute to Ricola Cough Drops ( sorry it cold and flu season so that's what's on my mind.) Tell Bob it's a very interseting photo.
