Sleepwalker - a realistic sculpture by Tony Matelli of a somnambulant man roaming about in a deep sleep.
While I was photographing, many people were confusing it for a "living statue" performer. One man even put money by the statue and a high-line worker had to explain to him that this was a statue and wouldn't have any use for his money. Everyone laughed.

Pottery, painted. New Kingdom, late Dynasty 18, reign of Amenhotep III (circa 1390-1352 B.C.E.) or Akhenaten (circa 1352-1336 B.C.E.). The fish represented is the perch or bolti (Tilapia nilotica), a creature that attracted the attention of the ancient Egyptians by its breeding habits. When bolti eggs have been deposited and fertilized, the female draws them into her mouth and keeps them there until they hatch. The Egyptians came to view the bolti as an animal capable of spontaneous generation and thus as a symbol of resurrection and rebirth.
Juvenile Atlantic sharpnose shark, Rhizoprionodon terraenovae. Gulf of Mexico.
Catching catfish from the ocean was surprising at first. Then it became annoying. Now I know that there are saltwater species of catfish.
After the long drive, we arrived at the campground but there was not much ground to stand on.
Later I met a woman who told me that the evening before there was a heavy rain. She hid from it in her camper until the morning and woke up to discover that the belongings she left around the camper were either underwater or gone. Someone's things were floating around. The next two days people had to move through the water.
Heavy rain caused the campground's pond to overflow. Mexico Beach, Florida.
