A ceramic snail sculpture rides on a Rolls and dreams of better things - at the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, FL.

Funny that the R-R hasn't been dusted in a day or two ... close shots find the dust in my house too! ;D
How did you enjoy the museum?

27 Jul 2011 12:36pm

@Judy aka L@dybug: A fun place. What surprised me most about this photo is that I used my small point & shoot Canon because the museum people are really strict about not having cameras inside the museum proper. It came out far clearer and better than I expected. The RR and snail(s) are out in the lobby near the museum store, so it was ok to shoot away. But Sammy and my Nikon were too big and conspicuous to carry around inside.

@Tede: Thanks!!

No wonder they are so expensive in French restaurants. Look at the transportation costs.

27 Jul 2011 6:45pm

@Gary: Hilarious! And probably true. These things would never be seen dead riding in a Ford.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Haha! I don't worry about the price, I wouldn't eat one. But they are great to photograph and a perfect hood ornament. Fun shot. I captured the same if not very similar not long ago. I'm happy to know you made it to the Dali. Perhaps a small point and shoot in the shape of an escargot would make it all the way into the museum. Nice clarity.

@Barbara: I actually have eaten escargot... once. I would again if prepared well - lots of garlic and butter or olive oil. Sort of like calamari or alligator tail - texture plus technique/ingredients = delicious. When are you going to start posting pics again?

What an amazing relationship for art . . but being different is what it takes, of course !

I like these snail photos on the shining car. I'm still not sure if the snails are real or not :)

@Albert: Lol. The only way you'll know for sure is to visit this Dali Museum in St. Pete.

Awesome! Close up and personal!! :)
