Art and About - A grey tsunami


We are in the middle of 'Spring fair' excitement in our city. The weather is not co-operating. We had blue skies and fine days during August, but September and October have been grey and dull.


This is my take on netting strung across THE major intersection of the CBD, right in front of the Town Hall. It is a challenge to make the entire work interesting in a photgraph during the day (Ann at Sydney Meandering has a shot of the entire work plus anchor points). The addition of lights during the evening make a difference (a random shot shared on Flikr). However, as is my want, I wondered is showing just detail would add interest.

They turned out well, didn't they, Julie? I like them!
Seems Kirsten is doing well, too. I'm SO glad.
Loved the photos of Alannah on the Wii. She's so wonderful, a heart-gladdening sight every time.

I like your take on it, especially the first one. I'm hoping to get a night shot on the way home on Thursday (if its not raining).

Interesting textures...

Yes after so much good weather the holidays were cold, wet and windy. Oh well we made the most of it. Now it is back to work and sunny weather will return.

It's an interesting work but what's more interesting is the location, over a busy intersection. Shame the sky wasn't cooperating. It would have been great against blue.

precisely the same use for the common in 'old' new england.

Love the detail you've captured in the top image. Reminds me of an arty spider's web. :)

I think I like the bottom shot best because it gives some sense of the bigger work and that little glimpse of cloud in the sky. The top one could be an old stocking or something.

I think the details look great Julie, good to see both views.

There shots are beautiful, Julie. Such clarity with the sky above as they billow and fall.
