shapes of art
March 5, 2014
This week's challenge is shapes of art selected by Imac Check out my pals for their interpretations on this theme: Fishing Guy, Katney, Imac, Lew, and Christine Anne.
Nnoooooooooo!!!! I had some nifty sculptures in mind that I shot while visiting downtown Saint Louis. Unfortunately, I cannot find the files!!
This set of snow sculptures adorns a home just about two or three blocks from my own home. I have wanted to get there in good light to re-shoot it, but I have not found the time. I'm surprised they're still recognizable after the recent (albeit brief) thaw and recurring snowfalls. As of today, we set a new record for frequency of snowfalls in this area. And as far as total accumulation is concerned, we are in fourth place for most snow in recorded history. Commuting takes twice as long in this stuff. As much as I love the snow-- and I really do, we are SO ready for spring!
Can you identify the sculptures on that lawn? I don't recognize the ones on the left, but from the center we have a bull, horse, owl, lion, man and woman.
I went back this morning and shot a few new pics of that lawn. I noticed a sign that says this person sells these sculptures. I think you can contract him/her to build a custom snow sculpture on your own lawn.
|It's (finally) starting to warm up and some of these will be unrecognizable soon.|
|Leprechaun & Shamrock|
|Yes, that is clearly a gnome on the left, and they added wings to the owl.|
