Shadow Shot Sunday and Ruby Tuesday

What exactly am I looking through here?  Well, I'm not sure either but I do know it's considered a sculpture. With all sincerity, I like my photographs of it more than I did the actual sculpture! I was really happy with this series which shows such a fascinating interplay of shadows and light.

Taken in the courtyard of the Worcester Museum of Art, Worcester Massachusetts, in mid-April, 2010.

  1. But such interesting sculpture! It certainly does lend itself to Shadow Shot Sunday.

  2. I does make an interesting subject for the photographer. I like this series with the sculpture used as both subject and frame.

  3. I like these interesting photos too.
    There is a sculpture in the Vatican that looks similar to this. I'll have to dig it out. I'd be surprised if it's not by the same artist.

  4. Love the way the sculpture reflects the sky. And it creates some very dramatic shadows, too. Great shots!
    Happy shadow-hunting!

  5. It appears that the artist's vision is of a world that has 'cracked up'. A literal expression, because we see a simple (if shiny) sphere on the surface, but with a complex set of layers emanating from the core. A cool sculpture!

  10. This photo has me stumped as far as writing a haiku or senryu! Maybe in the middle of the night inspiration will come to me. In the meantime, thanks for posting such an interesting photo!

  13. Thank you all for the nice comments. I really like the way these turned out!

    Judy: if you know the artist's name, could you come back and leave it in comments? I didn't take note or ask on my visit.

  15. I love the shots looking through the sculpture and the fact that it was mysterious until I read your explanation. I like th first shot with the tulips the most I think, but they are all interesting.

  16. Great shadow and sculpture! I love the texture you've captured too!

  17. I was thinking thick glass and water on first examination. I agree your photographs do justice to what the artist likely had in mind. Everything is a miracle depending on our point of view.

  18. Now that is a piece of sculpture I like!

  19. Jams: When I first encountered it, I didn't like or dislike it. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood to truly appreciate it right-off. But when I looked through it, I was intrigued and I loved what I saw through the camera lens. I'm still not sure I like the sculpture from a distance, though.

  20. Great angles. They give different perspectives and interpretations to the sculpture and blooms in the background.

  21. Hi!
    Yes alliums are in that family-like giant chives! In fact I am sure these ones have a fancy other name but I can't remember it!

    the sense of looking through and seeing all the reflections is very cool

  25. Incredibly cool, and beautifully photographed!

    I've never been there, but now I wanna go!
