It was a bit of an obscure prompt for The Weekend Photo Project this weekend, but I knew right away what I would photograph…
Affectionately known as the boobie pole around town, it is a sculpted wooden awning support pole that boast many, many breasts.
We also have a belly pole and lots of naked men and women – all done in wood, in all their glory.
Whenever we have friends or family come to visit our little town for the first time, we always take them on a tour of the sculptures. The reactions are pretty standard and generally include some variation of “what the f*ck” (if not those actual words!), which make us laugh. We’re used to the boobie pole now and really don’t give it a second glance.
