The Clock's Ticking ..........


on autumn and I have a few more photos I want to share before I have to say, "Au revoir automne!" This is what I saw as I left the museum last week. I just loved the great orange tree as the background for the black and white checkerboard of the sculpture. I'm including the "front" taken about a year ago when Eva and Davis and I paid a quick trip to the museum.

A reminder: Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness, a wonderful exhibit from the Yale University Gallery, now showing at our BMA through January 10th. Don't wait and have to stand in line to see it!!!!

I saw the exhibit early this time. I'm one of those who wait until the end and wind up in a crowd. It was great.

This works beautifully, V. It is such a bold, bright, exuberant image! Excellent catch.

Thérèse said...

Without this incredible background this very original sculpture would have been less impressive.
P.S. L'étoile (singular)/les étoiles (plural) :-)

The tree certainly provides a dramatic backdrop.

Funky contrasts!

JM said...

Super cool, the contrast is amazing! Great capture! Wish we had such reds around here... there is only one vine, as far as I know...
Also love your new b&w profile photo, V.!

Nothing like going out in a blaze!

Jacob said...

What a shot. It makes me dizzy looking at it. I know, I'm dizzy anyway, but this made me even dizzier. Or maybe the word is ditsy?

Ken Mac said...

had to return for more redness goodness

KM, You could be considered a repeat offender or better yet, a really a dear, dear friend!

Jacob,
A ditz.

Daryl,
Yep and I have more to squeeze in or just ditch.

B2, Thanks

Marley- Yep, funky for sure!

Thérèse, Oh merci. C'est dommage!!!

Steviewren, Oh I'm sorry you didn't come through when I was working the exhibit. I would have loved that!

Bratt, Merci mon amie!

Bibi,
I loved the contrast as well.

Olivier,
Merci!!

Maybe it's just my eyes (have an appointment with the eye doctor for the end of the week, but the sculpture seems to be moving, am having trouble taking it in, all the black & white squares keep shifting around on me... maybe I better stop drinking too...
