Two Curls

I have shared images before of this public art work by Paul Sorey called Salmon Waves that resides on the Magnolia side of the Ballard Locks. These wave-like metal curls are a fun sculptural installation that always proves popular with local photographers. On this winter day I managed to capture a wave and its faint shadow in morning sunlight. Just below the area where the sculptures stand is the viewing area where visitors in summer may watch several species of beautiful salmon make their way through the fish ladder at the locks. For now, though, "salmon in the sea run deep" and the ladder is quiet.

What a beautiful relaxing shape. I sure would love to see the salmon head up the ladder.


Such a striking sculpture and image, I love the faint shadow curling out into the background. Mornings are the best!

Oh yeah, I think we've been there. Seattle runs on the tides, daily, monthly and annual.
