Surfing The Waves Of Bright Lights

Lights cast a sculpture into a way you wouldn't have otherwise seen it before, as is the case with these sculptures.



When I first photographed the games sculpture above, I didn't quite show all of it- below,  we see the Rubiks cube, a marble, and jacks, if I'm not mistaken.



I thought the horses and rider merited shots in different light.



A reminder to fellow photobloggers: the first of March will be a CDP theme day, on people in the street.

  2. The last one is my absolute favourite with the pink turning to turquoise or the other way round.

  4. I continue to be amazed at how the elements can be cantilevered so far out yet not break off.

  8. The horse and ride is magnificent because of the way the sculptor captured the forward motion ... looks like they're flying through the air.

    Re your comment on Ocala: There's a large herd of cows not far from us which has in its midst one donkey. The word here is that donkeys will protect the cows from predators such as coyotes of which we have more than a few. Maybe that's why the "calming" effect. I'll have to do more research on this! :)

  11. @Linda: thank you!

    @Ciel: I wanted at least some of these shots to have those transition sort of feel to them in the colours.

    @Halcyon: thanks!

    @Stuart: they're so delicate, but the shelter does wonders in keeping them in good shape.

    @Lauren: thank you kindly!

    @Debs: it was one of my favourites!

    @Tanya: thanks!

  12. @Grace: thank you!

    @Lowell: it does feel like that. And it wouldn't surprise me that donkeys have that role with a herd as well. Llamas also do something rather similar.

    @Luis: thanks!

    @LondonLulu: who'd have thought pink would work as a colour?

    @Jan: you're welcome!

    @Norma: they're cool!

    @Sharon: that seems to be the consensus.

  16. I can't get over the difference the colour makes!

  17. A wonderful series, thanks William! It would be great to see something like this for myself one day.

  18. Beautiful artwork, I wonder how long they last before they melt, they should be preserved in a museum...

  19. @MB: you're welcome!

    @Linda: it amazes me that game board stood up through the whole festival. It was so slender.

    @TexMexGirl: that's the first I have heard of ducks doing that!

    @RedPat: it's very dramatic. I enjoyed seeing the ice carving over at your page.

    @Denise: thank you. It's a February tradition here.

    @Karl: they should be, but alas, that's not to be!
