A very odd “sculpture” (or upside down table with leg legs and sneakers?) at the doorway of one of the shops in Tarpon Springs, Florida, across from where the sponge ships dock.

FEATURED in Cee’s Fun Artsy Friends, May 10, 2011

Tarpon Springs was incorporated in 1887, largely by Greek immigrants who developed the region’s sponge-diving industry. The atmosphere is still heavily Greek, as evidenced by shops and eateries along the docks, and downtown boasts antiques stores and galleries.

Having lived most of my life in the northeast U.S., I am enjoying retired life in sunny Florida. I enjoy photographing many different kinds of things, but especially flowers and animals, including the beautiful birds found here in Florida. I am currently using a Canon EOS Rebel XSi/450D camera, a Canon 55-250 mm telescopic zoom lens, and a Sony P10 Cyber-shot digital camera. My newest acquisition is a Canon PowerShot SX260 HS, a point and shoot which I will be carrying in my purse.

    I have been there, but never seen the amazing sculpture… Excellent capture.

  • It was a shop further down the road where the sponge boats dock. I almost missed it myself. Thanks so much, Carol.
