"the rubber duck"

a few weeks ago, i logged onto the computer and on the home page was a photo of a huge rubber duck floating down a river... did anyone else see it?
 
i clicked on the article to see what it was about...
 
an artist by the name of florentijn hofman created "the rubber duck"... it's crazy big... like, 40 feet tall... how fun is it that this piece of art is traveling around the world for people to enjoy?
 
i called my girls in to see the pictures... they were laughing because it's so silly... and cute... and BIG...
 
the pictures that were shown online were from when the duck was on tour over seas... such neat pictures... i mentioned to the girls in passing that it would be a really fun thing to see...

fast forward to september 27th...

 my friend michelle and i were heading to pittsburgh {i was going along to help her with an engagement shoot}...  she proceeded to tell me that it might be pretty crowded where we were headed because there was supposed to be some giant duck there that night...
 
needless to say, i was just a tad excited... probably more than i should have been... but i never thought i'd get to see it in person...

so awesome to see it coming up the river...
it made me smile...
i mean, really... how could it not?

so fun!


if you click on the artist's name above it will take you to his site... he's done some really interesting things... check out the "slow slugs" made with metal, football nets and 40,000 plastic bags... A M A Z I N G!!!

have a happy day~

How COOL! I love the fact that it's just being left to float in peace. How could it not make people happy??
