    Thanks to all for the votes and comments.
elliot - there are indeed many Thinkers around; this one is in Palo Alto, CA, at the Stanford University Art Museum.
ysal - the statue is very near a building entrance, so people were often coming and going. The challenge actually was catching it with a single individual.
Lo - getting the right angle was more difficult than expected. The statue is in a small rotunda where you can walk all around on both lower and upper levels. From above, there are only a few spots where it's recognizable as the Thinker and not just a dark blob.

    Good point of view. I wish the woman had been holding a book instead of a phone.... ahhhh, but it is 2017.
Congrats on capturing another great find.

    Most creative take on the theme. The B&W treatment certainly helps. Great capture. In my favs.

    What a great catch! Did you wait long for somebody to sit right there?

    I love the juxtaposition here. This gives me a feeling of attempted telepathy on the part of the statue. Maybe he is sending his thoughts to the woman's phone. High in my faves.
