He is a magnificent looking lion - I'm intimidated from this distance!

He guards the sign well. Good choice.

Hi Elaine,

The bees are back in Brookville, Ohio. I hope for the rest of the year at least. I even got one on my Better Blog Writing post today. LOL

I see you found an adorable No sign.

Isn't it almost funny to think of adult people scurrying around their communities taking pictures of signs. And if somebody had asked what that is all about and you said a sign with "no" on it, they might... well. It is kind of funny.

This lion looks scary, I wouldn't park there!

Olivier said...

le lion surveille bien que personne ne se gare sur les places de parking.
the lion monitors although nobody station on the parking spaces.

Nice one!

Jim said...

I dont like those signs painted on the road. I never pay attention to that.

Halcyon said...

I like the way the lion is stealthily watching to make sure no one breaks the rules!

Palm Axis said...

I like how effectively you have that vertical/horizontal thing going on. I noticed how the corner of the asphalt touches up with the big cat's nose. He's snorting the parking lot. No parking, no snorting!

A sigle roar of that lion and everybody obeys for sure!!!
good pick!

Petrea said...

The lion gets to park. Nobody else. Lovely shot.

Knoxville Girl said...

mirage2g said...

Kelly said...

Beautiful lion! He does look like he is guarding the space. Nice find!

brian said...

very cool choice and angle for this shot! the lion seems to be doing his job!

Keropok Man said...

I had my imagination run wild. haha.. I pictured the white lion come alive and gave a loud wild roar when people irritate it by parking beside it. ;-)

oops, too much cartoons...

slim said...

Oh he looks like a pussycat to me . . . but I wouldn't park there just on principal ;) Nice capture.

Ken said...

Nicely composed. Just think if that was a real lion guarding the no parking zone.

USelaine said...

Thank you all for your visits and kind words. There are two of these lions, and they guard the front door to the hospital, so you better be very, very careful if you try to go in there.

Have you all voted on the next theme day? My favorite idea is "hands", but whatever the voters decide will be what it is.

Tash said...

Nice composition of showing something interesting and getting the theme in too.

Ming the Merciless said...

I like that your photo is so different from everyone's because the focal point is the lion statue, not the writing on the street. Very cool and original interpretation of this month's theme.

Jilly said...

Great lion. I so love the originality of this photograph and the way you've shown the No sign.

Ben said...

Thanks for comment on Nelson.
Looks like this lion is watching people.
