Theme Day: Water

In the Midst of Mists

Photo & Text Copyright 2008 Seattle Daily Photo. All rights reserved, including reproduction or republishing.

Water envelops one half of this sculpture installation at a time. This father in Father and Son by Louise Bourgeois is in the midst of mists. Sometimes he is shrouded from view by high water, at others, as in the photo, it's his son that is hidden from view. On this particular day, there is even water above him in the clouds as well as water below. For an overview of the whole fountain which resides in Olympic Sculpture Park, click here and here.

Water flows around the globe today, and you can see just about every creative manifestation of it by visiting these City Daily Photo Blogs. Your journey through 178 cities begins here:

Kim, this is beautiful. I've only had one opportunity to visit Seattle (last May) and I missed this. One more reason to come back!

Bibi said...

Lovely, lovely shot. I love how you captured the flow of the water; looks a bit like individual strands of cotton candy. Bravo.

jelvistar said...

This is such a great addition to the waterfront. We visited in January and had the whole park to ourselves. Great night shot!

Olivier said...

superbe photo, cette sculpture avec la fontaine (de plus une belle photo de nuit et quel ciel), bravo

Superb picture, the sculpture with a fountain (over photo of a beautiful night sky and what), bravo

Jilly said...

How fabulous. Such a beautiful photo of a stunning fountain. What a photo for today's theme!

R&R in The Netherlands said...

Cool fountain and really nice pic.

Marie-Noyale said...

A beautiful image of father and son even if the son is hidden...
The father's arms tell everything.
wonderful blue sky..

Small City Scenes said...

Great shot. I haven't been to the Sculpter Park yet--don't get down that way much. Water day, eh. MB

Fénix - Bostonscapes said...

Very dramatic, beautiful capture.

Happy theme day.

Bergson said...

the statue seems to take its shower and to leave a cloud at the same time

Strangetastes said...

Gorgeous. You got the light and shutter speed just right. I like Bourgeois' work, too, but I don't think we have any around here. On the other hand, a naive viewer could interpret this as a new bathing facility for Seattle's homeless.

Chris said...

Lovely shot, Kim. . .Lovely shot. I also like the music today.

Funny thing. . .When we were in Seattle a few years ago, it rained only once early one morning. It was great!

alice said...

There is an exhibition around Louise Bourgeois in Paris just now, in Beaubourg Museum I think, I must check...
Please Kim, could you tell me the tittle of this music on your blog? I really like it very much.

babooshka said...

Thnaks for stopping by my new blog.I liked the Aurora reference you left.
You have so many stunning photos, where to start commenting... What great way to discover Seattle through your images.

The daily theme being water. I didn't actually know about the daily theme.Will there be one tomorrow,and if so what will it be or where do i find out?

Will be back to journey further round Seattle,

Boo.

Sally said...

Kim, a beautiful, beautiful photo.

Ken said...

Nice photo. That must be quite the park.

Poly said...

You have got a "F": Fantastic

SeattleDMBfan said...

Beautiful shot! I need to check that sculpture park out.

Chuck Pefley said...

Kim nice light ... worth waiting for. I think that fountain is one of my favorites in Seattle. Happy theme day. ~Chuck

slim said...

This is a gorgeous capture for theme day. Seattle looks like a city I would love to visit some day . . . thanks for sharing all your great posts!

Dusty Lens said...

Great play on water. i like the contrast of the dark blue sky and bright white fountain, both in fluid contrast to the stationary stature.

USelaine said...

Oh my gosh, Kim! All of your photography is just gorgeous! Thank you for stopping by at "Willits" to say hello.

Ben said...

Wow, its a great lighting effect. Very nice.
Thanks for comment on Nelson and answer to your question is that both shots were taken with Tamron 17-50.
The theme-day shot was at the 17mm end and runner up one is at the 50mm end.

alice said...

Kim, maybe you'll be interested by: www.centrepompidou.fr (Louise Bourgeois's exhibition takes place there)

Jana said...

Great photo! I love how the clouds, water, and statue play off each other!

Neva said...
