abc wednesday - I is for "introspection"

This guy has been thinking for
more than a hundred years (what
do you call your sculpture when
your model looks bored?), and
if you're bored—I mean, if you're
feeling introspective—you
can join him (if you're also lucky) 
in  Rodin's garden.
See more ABCs here.


  1. The Thinker .... Many times I've contemplated him in person. Works of art like this are always impressive, no matter how many times you see them.

    A penny for his thoughts.

  2. With a build like that, I suspect he also spent a lot of time thinking while doing weights routines!

    Yay, my wv is wines.

  3. I often look like him...not bored but Thinking!
    Introspection is a great word. I shall go have some introspection with a cup of coffee.

  4. Rodin's work in person is just SO much more amazing than any picture can convey, and I don't know why.

  5. This statue has always fascinated me - a little introspection is a good thing...

  6. Wonderful to see the statue in person! Introspection is a good word.

    On behalf of the ABC Team, thanks for your post.

  7. Such a famous statue! I wonder if he's ever been an ABC Wednesday model before?
