Fearless Girl and Statues of Equality

For this evenings post I am starting off with some shots of the Fearless girl Statue in front of the NYC Stock Exchange, taking recently with my Sony Camera, and later I will move on to shots taken on my walk this morning'

The Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal, The statue was installed on March 7, 2017, in anticipation of International Women's Day the following day. It depicts a girl four foot high, promoting female empowerment, and was initially staring down the Charging Bull a well-known sculpture in NYC, but after some controversy, it was moved to where it is now and the fearless girl is looking across at the stock exchange.
the first shot shows the detail of her head, this next shot shows the full statue

Now I do often try and get photos without people on shot and thats something I am going to try and work on to change and sometimes include people in shot as I do realize sometimes that does add to the photo, and in the case for the next shot it does give a sense of scale to the size of the sculpture in this case with the people walking past behind it.

Now I will share a few shots taken today with my iPhone showing my walk today

Today's morning walk was inspired by a post from @starjewel yesterday of the Statues for Equality on 6th Avenue, and thanks for that post @starjewel, I was lacking motivation on going for walks and where to go, I do love the work of Gillie and Marc so I had to go and check it out, and it led to todays shots and a future post when I edit the shots of my camera

I decided to go with collages for tonights post, the first one features Tracy Caldwell Dyson, Oprah, Tererai Trent and Nicole Kidman

Hi there I do love the work of these two artists they have such a cool style

Girl defies life traders.
I also prefer pictures without people. Unless it's portraits :-))
But he began to notice, like you, that people revive the picture

Yes I think is some cases it is good to have a person in shot but not sure how often I will do it

I agree, I have the same. I didn’t shoot people at all before. Almost never. Now sometimes I arrange a real hunt, after I bought 55-210 :D

I love the fearless girl statue. I was sad to hear they moved it away from the bull, but I am glad that it is still around.

It seems that we are both into art today JJ and the sculptures here are so well done my friend.
Of course your photos also make them look much better I am sure.

I just saw your post and wow that art is amazing 😉

Thank you and glad that you also liked it JJ.
Amazing what beauty can be created from what we consider as worthless.

Ohh yes indeed, I think art or should I say recycled art is some of my favorite art that I see and really like and want to buy

have a good weekend

Very beautiful these sculptures, surely your walk was very enjoyable.

They were cool to go and see I only knew about them because someone else had done a post about them so I was glad to go and see them for myself

How fine!

What a great selection of women for that art presentation! Wonderful sculptures and you captured them well. I love the shot with the Fearless Girl face detail.

Thanks :) I also took some shots with my camera but havent looked at them yet that may be a future post

have a good weekend

Those are kind of cool statues. I wonder why they're in front of the NYC Stock Exchange, though. Do you suppose they placed them there because it's a high visibility area, or are they trying to say something about financial inequity as well?

here is what wikipedia says about it
Fearless Girl is a bronze sculpture by Kristen Visbal, commissioned by State Street Global Advisors (SSGA), a large asset management company. The statue was installed on March 7, 2017, in anticipation of International Women's Day the following day. It depicts a girl four foot high, promoting female empowerment[2]. It is located in front of the New York Stock Exchange in the Financial District of Manhattan, New York City.

Fearless Girl was commissioned to advertise for an index fund that comprises gender-diverse companies that have a relatively high percentage of women among their senior leadership. A plaque originally placed below the statue stated: "Know the power of women in leadership. SHE makes a difference," with "SHE" being both a descriptive pronoun and the fund's NASDAQ ticker symbol.

The statue was first installed at Bowling Green, at the intersection of Broadway and Whitehall Street,facing down the Charging Bull (or Wall Street Bull) statue, but following complaints from that statue's sculptor, Arturo Di Modica, was removed in November 2018 and relocated to its current location the following month. A plaque with footprints was placed on the original site of Fearless Girl.

Interesting. That makes a bit more sense, as far as placement. I can understand why the bull's sculptor was a bit upset, though. Putting her there changed the nature and meaning of his work.

Great photos and statues JJ, very impressive and powerful women!

Thanks and yes it was cool to be able to swing by and see these such a greta choice of Woman for these statues

I'd like to see the process of creating something like those, it has to be tons of work working with bronze!

Ohh yes I would love to see that as well, I can only imagineits a long and complex process

Long, hot and dangerous is what I imagine. I guess I should google it and see what I can find out. In my spare time. lol.

I would imagine the same I am sure one of us will find the time to be able to google it but wont be today for me LOL

Me neither. lol.
