Photo Friday: Notice the Creativity and Innovation Around You (snow couch)

Snow Couch - Dupont Circle

I knew this had to be this week’s photograph the minute I saw it (and cross posted it in various places…). It is what it looks like, a beautifully created couch made out of snow, in Dupont Circle, Washington, DC. This is just the tip of the iceberg reminder of what comes from a community that embraces diversity and new ideas.

Not everyone lives in/works in a place that is brimming with or tolerates diversity (ahem, Virginia), so the creativity and new ideas may not be as apparent, but they are there. I think people should always stop to notice them – creativity, innovation, and diversity potentiate each other.

Here’s a view of the furniture from different angles. Enjoy.
