Captured: The bear on 56th Street


The Bear on 56th Street

The bear stands on a cliff overlooking Eagle Creek Reservoir and 56th Street. He was the mascot of the former Galyan’s sporting-goods store. Galyan’s sold to Dick’s, which donated the bear to the city, which placed the bear here.

I last photographed the bear in 2012 with my Pentax K1000. Standing on the shoulder of 56th Street armed with only a 50mm lens, the bear was pretty small in the shot. When I was noodling around with my Sears 80-200mm zoom lens on my Pentax ME at the end of last autumn, I returned for this closeup.
