Through the looking glass at sunset..



I did make it back to Cottesloe yesterday evening in time to take that shot I was after.. I knew that the glass sculpture by Japanese artist Toshio Iezumi would translate in a completely different way as the sun was setting over the beach.. remember it here in the morning light. In the evening with iridescent colours bouncing off every sculpted surface it was truly a wonderful work of art. I couldn't decide which shot I liked best so here they are both, which do you prefer the closer or wider shot? To see how the event was organized and some of the sculptures I missed have a peek at this very short video here. Here's hoping you have a safe and happy weekend, take care..

  2. Those reflections have a wonderful abstract quality. Think I like the first one slightly better, but they are both good. The first one has more of that abstract quality.

  4. Shading is so different from one to another. I like the bright spots of yellow in the top photos.

  20. Oh, wow, Grace!!! They sure are so worth a print! Like a professional one. Beautiful!!
    Hmm, like... since I´ve been there, too... would you be ok with me having a pic - with your signature certainly! - having printed to have it in the condo? A no is accepted, certainly.

  21. Both nice shots Grace, I think I prefer the second one. I think the wider view with the horizon in focus just gives it a sense of place, but as I say both very nice

  23. I think I like the second shot the best. I like the wider expanse of water in the background. It really is a beautiful piece and you were so smart to go back and get the sunset shot. It really does make you see the limitless amount of expressions this piece can offer.

  24. That made for some some great photographs.

  25. They are both pretty good. Something I like about the first one is that the viewer has no idea what ir is. Could be a liqueur bottle.

  26. Both beautiful. I think I prefer the close up in the daytime.

  30. That sculpture is magic in any (Australian) light. Possibly wouldn't look so good under our grey skies though...
