Keep Out!

I see these lions at the end of a drive way on my route to work every day. I always laugh a little because I recently read a novel that joked about tacky lion sculptures guarding the entrance to a house. Today I decided to stop by and snap a few shots.

The funny thing about these is that they really don’t blend in with the architecture of the area, or the house they guard for that matter. Likely something the owner just had always wanted and decided to stick at the end of his driveway.

I processed this one into three different looks: one true(r) to the original colors, one in black and white, and one in a gold split tone. Thoughts?
