Lovely capture Beverly! The colors in this are wonderful.
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Frances. Yes, it really caught my eye when I spotted it on someone's front balcony.
Wonderful shot!!! You've isolated him from the background so nicely!
Beverly Andrighetti: Many thanks, Elizabeth. I did remove a lot of the distracting background noise to make the rooster stand out a bit more.

Good morning to you, too!!! smile
Beverly Andrighetti: Imagine, Ginnie, if he were real and his city dwelling owners and their neighbours were roused from their sleep each morning to the sound of his vociferous crowing.
That's a great sculpture of a colourful rooster Bev... i like the way that you framed this image....petersmile
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank you very much, Peter. It certainly got my attention sitting there on a second floor balcony in the middle of the city.

A nice wake-up for Monday, Beverly

Does it chime on the hour Beverly?
Beverly Andrighetti: No, but you should hear the dreadful noise it makes every morning, Chad.
Does this have a special meaning?
Beverly Andrighetti: I think it is just a decorative piece that the owners have placed on their balcony, Chantal.
Isn't he splendid
Beverly Andrighetti: I'm not sure, Janet, but I suspect he is made of tin or some kind of metal.
That is a delightfully quirky item Beverly
Beverly Andrighetti: Quirky is a good description. It was unexpected to see a rooster perched up there on a second floor balcony in the middle of the city, Bill.
Nice picture..

Similar to a sculpture i took on cottesloe beach
Beverly Andrighetti: Yes, I remember that shot, Preyi; very similar, indeed.
What a proud boy Beverly lovely to have on the balcony (and silent too!!)
Beverly Andrighetti: Thank goodness for that, Sally. I bet the neighbours appreciate the silence also.

Love the light on this beautiful rooster.
If I had neighbors with a life-rooster, I might organize a BBQ........
Beverly Andrighetti: Haha, I wouldn't blame you a bit, Astrid.
Woo! Love it!
Beverly Andrighetti: Thanks so much, Tom.
