Shilshole Photo Op, the Viking edition

Vikings and Babes. (Photo credit: Bella Q)

I took this photograph of my friend Mary while she was visiting last week-end. When we came upon this grand statue of Viking hero, Leif Erikson, it seemed the natural thing to do as a tourist, was to pose next to it. As I took some photos of Mary, my boyfriend snapped a a couple of me on his camera phone. I kind of liked the behind-the-scenes glimpse - a story in a story, if you will,  captured in a picture. 

I hope you do too.

Being of viking descent I instantly recognize the statue's sturdy legs! In what part of the US is it located?

I'll be showing my husband this new photographer's trick!
