Bilbao – Spanish artist Antonio Lopez looks at his work of art Man and Woman, consisting of two sculptures in polychrome wood, during the presentation of an exhibition dedicated to him at the Fine Arts Museum in Bilbao, Spain, 10 October 2011.

At first I didn’t realize this was the artist inspecting his work.  I like the photo much more when I imagine the old man to be a somewhat intimidated museum-goer.

Photo of the Week: National Cathedral Damage

Sad to see a little damage to the National Cathedral in Washington DC caused by the 5.8 earthquake Tuesday.  The East coast of the US doesn’t expect this sort of thing!
