Ephemeral – Tuesday Photo Challenge – Sculpture

Well this week Frank challenges us with the topic:

The theme of Sculpture challenges you to share photography of Sculptureboth large and small, as you enjoy it in your world. There should be plenty of opportunity to find some cool Sculpture!

Well I have lots of photos of sculpture, some are photos of works by famous artists, some are by those unknown, some appear to be sculptures but are natural, some are ancient and some are modern.  And I have shared quite a few on this blog.

Here is one taken on our recent trip to Anglesey, soon to return to nature I imagine a transient passage of artwork that enriches our lives for a limited time.

Duckman. – Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge – Lawn Ornaments.

This week Cee challenges us with the topic ‘Lawn Ornaments‘.

Where does Ornament stop and sculpture begin?  Does it depend on the size of the lawn? The size of the house?  This gnome like creature is pretty big, is it still an ornament?  An ornament is an accessory, article, or detail used to beautify the appearance of something to which it is added or of which it is a part, so I guess it is both.

Reaching in – Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Hands

For this weeks Fun Foto Challenge Cee gives us the topic of ‘Hands’.

Some of you will notice that doing this sort of thing is a theme for my wife and myself, sometimes it is the only way other than visual means to interface with the sculpture or ancient stone, touching may not be allowed, in this case it was, well there was nothing to say not to.  And sometimes the casting of the shadow makes us feel we are part of the object, that we were always waiting to become part of its realised form.

This week’s theme is Chair. I’m looking forward to seeing your entries!

Well I had just been editing this for XingfuMama’s Pull up a seat challenge, so I thought I would also give it another shot with a slightly different crop and take on the editing process here.

Interior exposed – Lens Artists Photo Challenge #45 – Street Art

This week Patti challenges us with:

Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #44 is your chance to highlight Street Art in any form, such as posters, graffiti, prints, stencils, sculptures, or installations. We’re looking forward to seeing the art you found on streets of the towns and cities close to home or all over the world.

I have mentioned in a previous post that my collection of graffiti is somewhat limited, something which I really should remedy.  So here is a sculpture, or rather four that make up the whole thing, I could not help taking several pictures of it when we encountered it while visiting Copenhagen at Amaliehaven.  The Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodoro created various sculptures for the park, including these four large abstract columns.
