Ruby Tuesday - Gentleman Reading Newspaper.

In Saturday's post you may have noticed a gentleman reading a newspaper to the left behind the fountain.  Smokey stopped to visit for a time.  He seemed like a nice enough gentleman but didn't talk much.  He seemed a bit stiff you might say.

Actually the sculpture is the original Hans Helmerich of Helmerich and Payne drilling, also owners of Utica Square. The newspaper he is reading is a reproduction of a particular day's newspaper from the Tulsa Tribune (now defunct). Thanks Yogi!.

Great shot. When I was over there years ago with Logan we had the Utica Square security guards on top of us all the sudden. I was actually reading the newspaper to gather cues for a geocache.

I bet he wasn't offended to have his picture taken!

I love this shot. The subtle and yet eye-catching red, and the man looks so real!!!

I see this kind of human sculpture engaged in ordinary activities around the world... and I like it a lot. Is that your pup posing so handsomely with the newspaper reader?
