This is Marvin, one of theÂ Mice on Main. Â He’s a bit apprehensive as his home is being redecorated. Â Finding all nine of the mice on Main Street is a fun challenge. Â However, I’m embarrassed to admit that I still haven’t played the full game and found all nine mice.
As a follow-up to yesterday’s photo about Mice on Main, today I share a photo of Sheila and a mouse … Actually I took this photo originally with the intent of capturing the bud light truck. Then our good friend Sheila playfully stepped trough the frame. And when looking at the photo after the fact I noticed a mouse sculpture I had not been aware of before … PS: Notice the netting on the Bud Light truck. This is so those serving beer can dispose of the bottles and if a toss is a too far no one is hurt by flying glass.
This is one of the nine mouse sculptures which can be found on Main Street in Greenville. The objective is to encourage family outings to search for the mice. As a result I will not share the location of this mouse. However, there are some official hints and the story behind the mouse sculptures at the GreeterGreenville website … You may remember a previous photo I have posted showing the photographing of a mouse sculpture. In today’s photo the mouse is way above our heads. I did not have a long lens on my camera so I took the shot blind, standing on my tip-toes and holding the camera fully extended above my head.
This week I have shown a dog and then a cat. So today I am sort of sharing a photo of a mouse … This young man is on a mouse hunt in downtown Greenville. His efforts include binoculars and a spotter. The mouse he is looking at was shown in this previous post.
Frequent visitors will remember Greenville’s Mice on Main sculptures … Yesterday we noticed painted rocks placed by several of the Mice. I’m not certain however I assume, that in the sprite of the season, these are baby Jesus portraits.
Yesterday I took this photo of Walter Ezell taking a photo of one of the ten mice sculptures on Main Street. If you look closely you can see the mouse at the top of the photo. He is perched on the sign and overlooks those of us who stroll on Main Street … I also have photographed this mouse and posted it previously … Walter’s preparation is impressive and I look forward to seeing what he post at his Flickr site … Because the idea is for families to hunt for the mice I can not give a map location. However, I will share a link to the official hints page which will help you find the mice.
