Earth After Humanity

www.rebeccahaegelephotography.com
This makes me think of earth reclaimed. 

I just happened upon the works of
sculptor Steve Tobin
as I ventured around Quakertown, PA.

This makes me think of walking tree roots. 

Driving though and industrial area,
these sculptures surrounded me
making me feel like I was in a Sci Fi movie.

This makes me think of all of our useless spoken words.

I found their source,
Steve Tobin's Gallery.
I was given permission to wander and take photos.

Tobin's Gallery in Quakertown, PA.

As I walked the grounds,
I didn't know what the artist intended
to convey with his work.
But to me,
I felt like I was seeing earth after all humanity was gone.

This didn't bring anything to mind, 
but I like it.

This makes me think of 
people frozen in time. 

I came home and read about Steve Tobin. 
It figures, I have a world renowned 
artist working in my backyard 
and I knew nothing of him.
