The first day of each month is a theme day for members of City Daily Photo. For November, that theme is Brown. You can see how others are interpreting this one right here.
I was passing alongside the National Arts Centre one evening in late April. The recessed lighting caught my eye, as did the exterior colour- appropriately brown.
Taken in July during a road trip into southern Ontario, this is a bas-relief, one of several in a subway station in downtown Toronto.
The rest of these were taken a few days ago in the same place, Major's Hill Park, while I was down here photographing fall colours. This sculpture is called Twist 1.5, dating to 1978. Alex Wyse and Ken Guild built this wooden spiral of British Columbia fir. I've shown it before, but decided it would be ideal to do so again, particularly with fall colours forming a backdrop. Buildings in the background of these shots include the Chateau Laurier, Parliament Hill, and the American embassy.
Chocolate brown is my favorite color … 😅ReplyDelete
The twist is very beautiful!
Oh, thank you, now I have "Let´s twist again" as earworm!ReplyDelete
But a very beautiful one it is, the artwork, I mean.
I remember seeing the spiral before. It works well as a subject for the theme.ReplyDelete
I like that spiral, as if its brown or not, doesn't matter.ReplyDelete
Good job of sticking to the theme. You have been diligent about it. I forgot and Brown is one of my favorites!ReplyDelete
my Grandfather had a wind chime ... that is not the right word ...but he would have it spinning all the time. his good friend made it ... similar to that. lots of different kinds of wood. very cool. have a great Friday. weird week. Halloween evening was a wild time. hope your weather was better than ours? take care. ( ;ReplyDelete
