Photographer's Note

Here is one more for my series showing the statues along the Malecón in La Paz. This sculpture appears larger in fotos than it truly is. Octavio González has created some HUGE sculptures of whales -- his piece in Puerto Vallarta, "Ballena Jorobada y su Cria" is 12 meters long -- but for this piece, he chose to work smaller than life-size.

The subject of this work is a humpback whale. Humpbacks are sometimes spotted in the bay (away from the city, out toward the Sea of Cortes), but the more common species here is California Gray whales.
