Barefoot Business Man

Here is the barefoot business man, whom the briefcase and shoes, belong to. All are bolted down. This man reminds me that professionalism and relaxation can be shared traits. As cars go passing by, this man sooths his bare feet while reading the newspaper. This is one of several bronze sculptures in Downtown Wichita along Douglas Street. They range in size from as small as a chipmunk - to as large as a soda shop scene.

Wendy, Welcome to blogger. You have a good eye like your cousin. Loved the Pony tails.

This statue is really interesting.

I'd love to walk barefoot down a street like that, where water sprung from the pavement.

I find all your pics really lovely.

It is great art or greater than most public art I see. Nice photo too.

My wife, Patty, and I have been married for 52 years today. Imagine that.

Welcome to the Daily Photo family and greetings from Greenville, SC. Your entry into this exciting community really is family related given your Cousin Annie directed me here ... I especially like how the last three photos played with a theme of bare feet

I like the little fountains near his feet!
Your Cousin Annie sent me over for a peek...BTW, I lived near Wichita (El Dorado) for one year...1962.

I love the feet. Yes, I am about family and that is about it very boring and never exciting..

A Ephemeris is a log...like a daily journal. My little journey on Galla Creek.

This is so cool! The statute doesn't seem remote like most -- but part of us walking along!
