Prima Ballerina

This was one of the other shots that seemed to get a peculiar fringe. Look closely and you can see a ballerina (or is it a figure skater?) in the heart of the ice.

  5. É difícil definir com exatidão mas pela postura corporal parece mesmo uma bailarina
    Uma imagem bem instigante e fabulosa
    Tenha um ótimo dia

  6. At the first look of the photo, I couldn't figure out what this sculpture was. But now I see! That's a very pretty ballerina (or figure skater!)

  7. That's very delicate with that well hidden figure in the middle.

  10. I think it looks like someone being pulled up into the air as they hang on to an umbrella.

  12. Those sculptures really dress up the fountain!

  13. You're right that this carving is different. Now the skater or dancer looks like a very detailed carving.

  14. @Linda: the carver who did this one really worked wonders.

    @Cloudia: I shall have to look that up.

    @Halcyon: I thought so.

    @Elaine: definitely.

    @Tomas: hah!

    @Gemma: quite true.

    @Gracita: thank you!

    @Tamago: and I hadn't noticed the umbrella until the second time I looked at the sculpture.

    @Jan: it is very fine work.

    @Karl: she's quite frozen indeed.

    @Birdman: it's been a pleasure to do so.

    @Audrey: thanks!

    @Luis: thank you.

    @Jane and Chris: I wondered how many people might see the umbrella!

    @Tex: thank you!

    @Janis: I find spammers tend to strike at posts more than two or three weeks old.

    @VP: thank y ou!

    @Judy: they certainly do.

    @Red: yes, much more detailed than yesterday's work, which happens to be in the pic too.

    @Tanya: it takes a bit of looking to see her.

  15. I clicked on the picture and it came up large. I can see it very clear it is. As you said.

    What talent.

  16. It has to be a skater. A ballerina would have died of cold ;-) It's very pretty!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Wow! Someone really worked on this!

    And ballerina or skater....she's still lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  18. I had to zoom in and yes, lovely!

    ReplyDelete
  19. @Norma: she's there!

    @Carolann: a lot of talent.

    @Ciel: good point!

    @Cheryl: that she is.

    @Marleen: fortunately Blogger lets one expand the shot.

    @Country Gal: now that I hadn't thought of!

    @RedPat: very cold.

  20. Yes I found her! I actually like the setting she's in, the edges of the block of ice look really good.

    ReplyDelete
  21. She is so pretty and delicate! I have gone back and enlarged all of your pictures for the past few days so I could see the details. They are amazing!

    ReplyDelete
  22. She is probably dancing to Ode to the Ice.

    ReplyDelete
  23. I had to enlarge it to see the detail also, glad I did it was pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  24. @Whisk: she's there!

    @Geoff: it's creative edging. Even if the figure weren't in the center of it all, it would still look interesting.

    @Lois: thanks!

    @Mari: possibly.

    @Gill: thank you!

  25. I see her! She looks very graceful.
