Photo of the Week

waddesdon manor fountain sculpture 2

Here's a pic of a sculpture at the Playboy Mansion. My cousin Bill sent it to me after he was invited there to be interviewed for the magazine.

Actually, I just made that up. This is one of the sculptures I photographed at Waddesdon Manor in Buckinghamshire, England, last month when I was on vacation. The Manor is the former country home of Baron Ferdinand de Rothschild, who was apparently a bit of a Victorian Hugh Hefner.

Click for a closer view. (May not be safe for work.)

You can see the whole thing, equestrian nymphs and all, here. And the over-the-top Manor (now owned by the National Trust) here.
