For those of you that were wondering about the Big Ones WW from Tuesday of last week, this is the wider view. Now all should be clear.

SandyCarlson said...

Clear. Gotcha! Some interesting art down there, my friend!

Annie said...

Hokaaayyyy? I'm confused.

Mama Zen said...

That is just . . . odd.

dianne - bunny trails said...

Interesting, for sure. I like it in b&w.

That is strange but really interesting. I like it.

Artist Unplugged said...

Just hope this isn't in your backyard......nice photo! Love the fish photo too!

Lori said...

What the?? Cool and weird. Great shot. Happy WW:)

All these fairly basic shapes remind me of the wooden blocks I used to play with. I would make odd shaped structures like this before proclaiming myself to be a bulldozer and rolling over everything. I like how you framed this to have most of the Strange set on the dark tree background.

Those HDR's were made using a friend's copy of Photomatix. As I don't have my own yet, I've also been experimenting with the HDR utility in Photoshop, exposure blending in GIMP, and the HDR tool in CinePaint. None of these seem to have the same capabilities and results as Photomatix, so I may need to borrow her laptop again or see if the school has licenses with any companies that produce reputable HDR software.

Huh!?
It looks weird and ready to topple on anyone who past through it. hehe....

catsynth said...

That is a beautiful piece of sculpture and a great photograph. I like how it incorporates seemingly disparate geometric elements into a single structure. It looks like something I might do in computer graphics - indeed, I am going to bookmark this one for use as inspiration for a future WW :)

Terri said...

Hmmmmmmmmm.

What IS your secret for getting on WW so quickly?? I swear, some nights I refresh refresh refresh and Boom, there are 70 posts there. Whah???

stan said...

I think this is really interesting. If nothing else, it photographs well! Nice job.

Tricia said...

Strange, but peaceful somehow. It almost looks like one of those creations I see on my daughter's playroom floor.

Robin said...

I like the sculpture, if only because it's thought-provoking. Simple? Yes. Looks like children's blocks? Yes. Just plain strange? Yes.

But here we all are talking about it :-).

Shadow said...

strange yes, but very eye-catching

Julia Smith said...

Kind of Dali-esque today, Mojo.

Daryl said...

I am with Julia, that looks very Sal ...

DNLee said...

Eaton Bennett said...

A most unusual piece of sculpture, but not out of place in what looks like a pretty garden. Hope you're having a good Wednesday! :)
