Sculpture by the sea, encore



On this Sunday, my steps bring me back to Sculpture by the Sea, for my pleasure and yours too I hope. These two photos were taken shortly after sunrise, a wonderful time of solitude before the crowds arrive.
These artworks are both abstract but very different: one is shiny metal, the other is stone. Today again I'll give you the choice: which one do you prefer?

Ce dimanche me ramène à Sculpture by the Sea, pour mon plaisir et j'espère aussi pour le vôtre. J'ai pris ceux deux photos peu après le lever du soleil, à un merveilleux moment de solitude avant l'arrivée de la foule.
L'une de métal poli, l'autre de pierre mais toutes deux abstraites, voilà deux oeuvres bien différentes. Aujourd'hui encore je vous donne le choix : laquelle préférez-vous ?

I missed the whole series until now - but each looks spectacular! I like the children lost in the desert the best - a funny title and you've given us a wonderful view. From the above I find it interesting how you have captured them - one looks warm (stone) and the other cold (metal).

I'll take both, thank you!

(but on a second thought,I'd prefer the stone sculpture) :)

Cheers!

I like the telescopic one. The other strikes me as a little dangerous - camouflaged as it is by same colour as the sand. Imagine gaily throwing your frisbee and running backwards with jolly smile on your face and coming to an unwelcome halt straight into these. Not what you'd expect, really is it. And you'd lose points on the frisbee game. Is that fair?

Even I don`t think about sculptures, I like more the second picture.
I can imagine, how wonderful it`s to walk on the shore looking at sunset and being in same time in an art galleria.
Remembering your father with the
beautiful picture was touching.
Have a pleasant week, Nathalie.

la serie continue et elle est toujours aussi belle et originale.

Les deux matières sont issues de la Terre. Elles peuvent tour à tour nous restituer chaleur ou froideur ; tout dépend de l'état d'âme du moment qui saura en capter les ondes. Aujourd'hui, je serais davantage réceptive à la forme associée à la matière ; je ressens bien la deuxième (voui, les formes arrondies ... mais je viens de te dire que je sors d'un apéro. Et zou, je t'embrasse encore. J'ai du retard dans les bisous, longtemps que tu n'avais pas eu droit à mes élucubrations. Ca te manquait pas au moins)

The one at the top is just amazing, Nathalie.

They're both great, but if I have to choose its the second one. Sunrise and solitude are a great combination. I would love to see that type of sculpture here.
