Concept Photo Shoot: Austin Plays With Statues

I've seen pictures of people doing fun poses with statues posted around the Internet and thought they were good creative fun, imposing new meaning on something already existing. Though it's usually an incidental thing. So I came up with the idea of what if we went out and deliberately did a series of pictures like that with all the statues we could find. I called up my actor friend Austin and he liked the idea. So we set out one afternoon and he just let loose with a lot of fun ideas with the local art work.

He had a lot of fun with Abraham Lincoln. The hugeness of the statue really contributed to the possibilities. The first three pictures are a kind of triptych.
