Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge: Repurpose

Here is my entry for this week’s Daily Post Weekly Photo Challenge with the topic of Repurpose.  ENJOY.

This drum we bought from Metal Sculptor Ben Dye.  The drum I photographed below was originally a standard USA propane tank.

We saw this drum originally in Ben Dye's Studio during an open house he had.

Ben Dye basically does huge public metal art sculptures.  He says “Public art can be described as a community’s self-expression. Just as we adorn our personal living spaces as a means of self-expression, so too can public art be used to express the uniqueness and shared values of our communities.”

He is a gentle man and you will oftentimes get to meet his pet goats and pig as you wonder his studio and outdoor gallery.
