If you have visit this site before, you have undoubtedly seen the front entrance of the St. Louis Art Museum on multiple occasions. Well, this is the backside that has recently transformed into a spacious plaza for special events and also serve as the museum’s new sculpture garden. Here’s a quick sample of some of the works on display in the garden. I took notes so I could supply captions for each sculpture, but I can’t find my second sheet of notes. Will correct after my next visit.
This week, share your photographs that have captured motion, and tell us the stories behind the images. (For more information go here.)
These little ducklings were just begging to have their picture taken. Not seen in the picture was their mother who waddled along their swim path watching their every paddle. The camera captured every from their paddling strokes churning up the water to the drops of water falling from the bill of the one duckling who stopped to capture a quick snack from the lake.
For this week’s photo challenge, share with us a photo that expresses something fresh. (For more information go HERE!)
Walls are the canvases of our lives: where stories are read, voices are heard, ideas are shared. This week consider the walls you’ve erected and decorated, the halls you walk down each day, or the exteriors you’ve ignored or neglected. What do these walls reveal about a place, people, or you? (For more information, go here.)
This is the wall I face when I sit at my computer (an iMac) working on photos, writing, creating and what have you. The wall has been this rich burnt umber color for over 20-years. So I don’t think I’ll change it any time soon. There is all four framed pieces hanging on the wall. Starting on the left there is a film strip of a prize-winning television commercial that I wrote and produced a couple of decades ago. If you click on the photo to enlarge it, you’ll see that it features recreations of silent movie comedians Laurel and Hardy. Next is a graphic artwork by my best friend designed to accent the wall color. Then there is the painting of the classic 20th Century locomotive. It has always been one of my favorites. And below photo of a crushed origami bird I call ALBATROSS. The desktop includes the usual flotsam and jetsam of live, plus a ceramic lamp kitten, a multi-function clock, my printer/scanner, my phone, and paper shredder. Nothing more and nothing less, other than Yoda.
They were in a shatter-proof case in the Oriental Galleries of the Saint Louis Art Museum, and they were so cute I just had to take their pictures. Officially they’re known as Edo period Censer in the Form of Two Puppies, which we would probable call a Wizard Air Freshener if it was in our houses. But they were still very cute puppies.
