You say Potato, I say Dear God!

Above left, an old postcard. Above right, true horror, Freddy Krueger style. I took that photo 7 miles east of Fredrickton, New Brunswick, on the Trans Canadian Highway. So it seems Australians don’t have a monopoly on unsettling monolithic sculptures. Speaking of which, look at this splendid lobster, found somewhere in South Australia, a feverish childhood memory, circa 1980's family road trip. Which sculpture is scarier? Discuss.

  1. As I don't eat seafood I will have to say that the giant scary looking potato is definitely the winner. No one wants their food to be larger and scarier than them!

  3. Don't worry Jo, my beige velour tracksuit is far more troublesome than your two-tone socks! ~Sav xo
