Brooklyn Business...

Tonight’s pictures have been sent in by Sean Conrad, and originate from a day out at the Brooklyn Museum.



There seem to be a lot of people out there who take great pleasure in imitating the sculptures of Auguste Rodin, following in the footsteps of the Thinking Man last week. To begin with, we have Sean’s friend Lauren carrying out a bold and downright manly pose in the first Stand By Your Rodin moment of the evening.



Next up we have Sean’s friend Janine throwing some superlative facial expressions while imitating this Rodin masterpiece.



Finally, although technically this does not pass as a like-for-like Stand By Your Statue imitation, It would be rude not to publish this great shot of Sean’s head!

Lauren, Janine and Sean, thank you hugely for sharing your photos of your day out - we here at Stand By Your Statue salute you!

I think Sean is onto a whole new genre of Statue Standing here - "Complete Your Broken Statue" - perhaps he could take his friends to Paris and sneak into the Louvre to give the Venus de Milo some arms, or head to Cairo to reinstate the nose of the Sphinx?

I'd love to see his "Ozymandias"

I enjoy posing next to paintings, as if I was their creator. Usually accompanied by four or five people with cameras to act as photojournalists.

Glad I'm somewhat not alone.

I gotta say, this is the most unique concept for a website that I've ever seen. Now, I've got to go look through my photos to see if I've done this, ever...
