MY Rock Sculpture Fell Down

The sculpture in front of my house rarely falls down. But not rarely enough.

Yes, I mean MY rock sculpture.  The one in front of my house (sure, go ahead, drive around looking for it—it's in the Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood area).  

It falls down so infrequently that it has left me stunned (see the look on my face?). 

Fortunately, I know how to build even better rock sculptures from the remains of previous rock sculptures.  

It took me about three days to come to a result that I liked and felt was worthy enough to photograph for all the world to see (or, at least, the wonderful people who follow the Ardmore-Merion-Wynnewood Patch and the Narberth-Bala Cynwyd Patch). 

I've actually collected an assortment of new rocks from my secret source in preparation for a new rock sculpture. 

This started when I found a large rock lying in the street near home.  It's perfect as a base for a rock sculpture.  I just need to contact my friend in Media for some of his granite blocks.  (I don't think I'll be able to get the ones off Arnold Field at since they've re-developed that site—not that I'm saying I've ever done that....).  

And, speaking of Media, I did visit there to check on my  existing rock sculptures.  I took "before" and "after" photos for you.  The sculpture at Media Lima Dental only needed some re-freshening.  Wind or birds had knocked down some of the smaller, top rocks. 

This sculpture is still my biggest effort.  It has the largest rocks in it, as my aching back will readily attest.  It only took a few minutes to re-construct to a decent result.

The sculpture at The Cambio Salon & Spa had been completely knocked down.  I really like this location because, at night, the headlights of the cars entering Baltimore Pike from Rt. 352 light up the sculpture.  People get a surprise look at a (to me) work of art that isn't seen by most people.  Thus, I was saddened to see it obliterated when I pulled into the parking lot.  The resulting sculpture is nice, but I shall put more into this one at its next re-incarnation.
