James Thomson once said, “statues and pictures and verse may be grand, but they are not the life for which they stand.” Regardless, they are pretty fun to look at! For this week’s segment of We Love Friday, fasten your seat belts as we travel around the world to see some amazing statues! As always, we chose our favorite photos from Instagram that matched our weekly theme. A very special thank you to each one of our featured Instagrammers this week! Be sure to click on the links for each user and see what other incredible things they have captured on their smart phones.
Next week’s theme will be tattoos, so if you have any- or know anyone who does, snap a shot, upload it to Instagram, and tag it #tattoos and @visualnews. The best ones will be featured next Friday. We would like to wish each one of you a fantastic weekend, filled with laughter and joy! Thanks for reading!
