sculpture walk inspiration

sculpture1

Exploring landscapes and experiencing art – both of those activities and the places they lead to (in mind and in real) are sources of inspiration for me.

Yesterday i did both simultaneously, while walking along the summer sculpture walk at the Alb plateau. It’s so good and so full of moments that i only visited the first half of sculptures, to keep the other ones for a second visit.

And 2 inspiration quotes:

“Do one thing every day that scares you.” ― Eleanor Roosevelt

“We delight in the beauty of the butterfly, but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty.” ― Maya Angelou

half and half sky

sky-half

I still remember driving this island road, first in the sun, then in the shadow of those huge clouds, and then in rain. The photo is from Lanzarote island.

And a half quote:

“A mirror does not exist by itself. A mirror is a half. Half is done by the piece. The other half has to be done by the beholder. You need to be the half to see what you’re looking for, so the mirror can exist.”
– Cristiane Serruya

Inspired by sky friday, and by the current photo challenge: “This week, share an image that has two clear halves, literally or figuratively. You could focus on composition and take a photo with an explicit dividing line. Or take the theme in other directions.”

a photo-play with a tree art installation (which is based on several mirrors installed in between trees), combined with digitally mirroring the image:

all those patterns that emerge in nature, and also: the way patterns get enhanced and transformed by a mirror.
