One lonely snow man by sarasdadandmom

One lonely snow man

I thought this snow man all alone in front of this huge mansion was kind of strange but kind of cool.....
A fave Terry - love the lonely snowman waiting outside the lavish looking home. Great contrast.

lovely comp, great shot
December 28th, 2011  
Cool find! He looks so lonely and small!
December 28th, 2011  
I enlarged this and it's fantastic!!! That snowman may mean that there's life inside that gorgeous mansion . . maybe children. Yay! A family is just what should be living in there.

Fav for me, maybe I will have to write a story
December 29th, 2011  
Brilliant! I love making snowmen and this shot really makes it stand out!
December 29th, 2011  
I love all the little foot paths to the snowman. There must be a little one or ones in that big house! Great shot!
December 29th, 2011  
Cute capture!
December 29th, 2011  
he is defending the manor... I loved the shot of Sara in front of this house.. and glad got to see it in all its glory.. good shot Mr Terry..
December 29th, 2011  
He does look lonely. great capture!
December 29th, 2011  
The little snowman looks a little out of place in front of the giant house.
December 29th, 2011  
@lisjam1 He does doesn't he.
December 29th, 2011  
Did you and Sara make that? Now come on, tell the truth :)
December 29th, 2011  
@digitalrn No, but most people think maybe a kid lives inside. They must not have read it is the Eli Lilly Estate on the Indiana Museum of Art Land. No one lives there you can tour it. Hope you get to come this way sometime, we have the largest children's museum in the world, for your grand kids.

Merry Christmas.. late but better than never.. and an early Happy New year. Luv this litttle snowman in front of the huge mansion... looks awesome, wish it was my house :-)
December 29th, 2011  
haha! This is very cool! I like it!
December 29th, 2011  
Wonderful shot.
December 29th, 2011  
Looks like a beautiful spot! Is this your house? :)
December 29th, 2011  
I like the set of footprints walking away from it. Just barely seen to tell the story.
December 29th, 2011  
This was an instant fave for me. I love snowmen, and this one cracked me up. It's size compared to that mansion is the exact opposite of the giant snowmen we build in front of our little house. Hope you had a wonderful Christmas, Terry. I'm still catching up...
December 29th, 2011  
@lauriehiggins thanks Laurie , it is on a 100 acre site at the Indiana Museum of Art and inside it was all decorated for xmas, you would have loved it.
December 29th, 2011  
@webfoot I thought those were cool also.
December 29th, 2011  
@nana I couldn't afford to cut the grass on this place. ...LOL,

@murnane Thanks Marg, it was a beauty
December 29th, 2011  
@mrssmith Come and see it sometime, it is on the north west side of the city, on the grounds of the Indiana Museum of Art
December 29th, 2011  
@robynelizabeth thanks robyn, so good to hear from you again
December 29th, 2011  
Awesome shot! One could write a novel about this. Can't help but wonder about his creation, and where his maker might be right now.
December 29th, 2011  
@myautofocuslife Liva, this is the home of Eli Lilly, owner of a huge manufacture of drugs. They invented prozac. It now sits on the 100 acre site of the Indiana Museum of Art. You can go on line and take a tour of the inside.
December 29th, 2011  
Nice shot, could do with a bit of that cold over here to cool things down a bit!! : )
December 29th, 2011  
Lovely shot. He looks soooo lonely there in the cold.
December 29th, 2011  
l like this - A FAV
December 29th, 2011  
I think it's cool too! From this one picture, we could write a book. Nice find.
December 29th, 2011  
Maybe he got lost...
December 29th, 2011  
Great shot! Love the footprints leading to him!
December 29th, 2011  
@clarissajohal Silly girl, snowmen don't get lost. They just follow the tracks that built them
December 29th, 2011  
@loey5150 Thanks Lois, it is beautiful inside. It is the mansion of ELI LILLY the owner of a huge pharmaceutical company
December 29th, 2011  
@twinsplusone I like the foot prints
December 29th, 2011  
@carmichaelbev Bev, I would love for you to see inside sometime. It is beautiful
December 29th, 2011  
Awesome shot!! That snowman has a huge house!! I want to live there!
December 29th, 2011  
@scooter I will get your room ready
December 29th, 2011  
Great shot i love all the white!
December 29th, 2011  
i agree - who doesn't love a snowman!?
December 29th, 2011  
@adobewaters my thoughts exactly
December 29th, 2011  
I've never seen a snowman at the Lilly house! How cool! The IMA is a beautiful spot for photos when it snows. FAV! Love the snowman!
December 29th, 2011  
What an impressive mansion! Love the foot prints out to the snowman. Makes me wonder who built that little guy!
December 29th, 2011  
Just think if really a kid lived inside ...I would take him in for hot chocolate and cookies! Gorgeous mansion, would you please put in the agenda for next time I visit?
December 29th, 2011  
love the contrast between the size of the house and snowman--love this picture!! :)
December 29th, 2011  
Nice shot with all the whites. Great capture of the snowman out patrolling the gardens...
December 29th, 2011  
@pulguis OMG, that list is so long I have used a case of paper.
December 29th, 2011

December 29th, 2011

December 30th, 2011  
@summerfield good call, it does look like that
December 30th, 2011  
that's cute! It's very far away from the house too which is funny
December 30th, 2011  
Interesting and funny-
December 30th, 2011  
@sarasdadandmom Yes we definitely need to get the Indy 365ers together!
December 30th, 2011  
@deniseinindy I am on board, you and Lisa know everyone so lets start asking. I will get the 16 passenger van, and we will be off. Start making a list of some places we what to shoot. What a trip that would be. I will put a cooler and snacks in the van and we will take pictures until we fall over.
December 31st, 2011  
Nice picture Terry...another fav!
December 31st, 2011  
A wonderful picture. The snow man really humanizes the formal mansion.
December 31st, 2011  
Haha...he's cute. Hopefully it means that these people aren't completely stuffy and still know how to have fun w/o spending money. ;^)
December 31st, 2011  
I LOVE this shot Terry! What a great find and beautifully shot!
December 31st, 2011  
fav:)
December 31st, 2011  
Such a fun thing to see.. You sort of expect folks that live in a house like that to not be "normal" enough to put in a snowman.. I dig the way it makes me rethink myself..
December 31st, 2011  
huge contrast! happy new year !
December 31st, 2011  
That is one lonely snowman -- Great Contrast with that mansion in back! Great Shot!
December 31st, 2011  
wow, such a cool picture! That snowman really looks tiny in front of that mansion! Great capture!
January 1st, 2012  
Great shot Terry. How would you like to heat that place.
January 2nd, 2012  
@hollandcrew I don't make enough money to heat that place
January 3rd, 2012  
What a beautiful home! Is this the same home that you have photos of the inside?
January 6th, 2012  
@katrinacristy Yes it is, the Lilly Mansion, at the IMA,.. Indiana Museum Of Art
January 6th, 2012  
Looks a lonely soul.
January 8th, 2012  
The one lonely snowman is kind of weird but it makes for a great shot. That house is amazing.
