I've always admired the plaster artwork of George Segal. This morning I froze a pair of old decrepit shoes in plaster. Then I experimented again with the HDR function on the camera but using two different settings--the shoes and garden. Eventually I'll get to people. Here is the combination of shoes cast in plaster and creeping geranium.
