Aged bronze dignitary from a near forgotten age,
Stands watch over a bustling city square.
Behind, a goggle-eyed invader watches with envy.
A modern contrast in an ancient city.
This week's 30 Word Thursday picture was taken in Maastricht, Netherlands during our recent visit through Beertrips.com. I was struck by this little alien that I saw peaking out in several places over the city. On the one hand I was annoyed by someone defacing such a medieval city, but on the other it struck a strange chord in me. Check out the other 30 Word Thursday entrants tis week at the Treasures Found Blog--and, hey try one out yourself!
