Street Mache - Dog with a Flap Ear


This photo was taken on March 11, 2020 at 4:09 AM.

The location was in Washington DC at the entrance drive to a very upscale hotel which is paved in cobble stones.

The "Take It!" came from having had a second look at this unusual scrap of paper which appears to have been a tear out originally which differs from most paper I observe in the street (Most have defined edges found on such things as, discarded napkins, register receipts, food wrappers, etc.).

The fold over ear - was the part that had me look twice to see if there was any way to draw from imagination a figure common enough to relate to.

Quite frankly - I think it looks more like a cow - but then, from the best of my recollection - cows do not have floppy ears - lol.

Here is hoping this bit of scrap brings a grin in your day.

Wishing you all my best,


PS: By the way - while the cobble stones give a very cool and rustic look to the entrance - the personnel who staff the entry dislike the unevenness found with them as they are punishing to their feet (even with super soft soled footwear to absorb this rough surface).

    Our little one absolutely loved this one. She had it up for over a half an hour.

    Zero imagination required here. Dog, cow, either work.

    I wonder how it got there and ended up in that exact shape.

    Thanks to everyone for your kind comments. I am very happy this one brought such enjoyment.

    A special thanks to Gabe for the suggestion for a book. I will try a small gallery show here at the house to see if they spark an interest and will let you all know the results. I am working on a way to put on such a show - using the IKEA shelving units I have which are the cubicle type. When it is put together I will make up a photo/story and share it with everyone. I am doing my best to get everything well organized since my move to this location - and am happy to say - I am making some progress.

    My best to every one.
