Harmony

This is the last of Susie's photographs for this week.  I need to get back on tomorrow before the blog's management kicks me off.

Harmony is the name of a metal sculpture that sits in a small pond in Hartford's Bushnell Park.  In the summer two near-by fountains spray water high, and an antique carrousel pumps out its melodies.  In the winter, Harmony sits quietly, while it rests up and contemplates.

I really like this sculpture. And the snow definitely adds something to the scene. Great shot!

Very cool shadow play - artsy too!

You will have to give us a summer time view when that season once again returns.

Susie is superb! Another wonderful photo. I like the sculpture a lot and she's created a wonderful composition with that fresh field of snow!

She must have had a good teacher of photography! :-)

An interesting artwork, I like the way Susie got its shadow either.

And allows us to stare in awe at its shadow. Beautiful!

I had to laugh at your comment today. If only you knew how uncomfortable my Mum gets when she sees the camera in my hand when we are at a restaurant... I don't think she will ever get used to it.

I like it. A lot. The sculpture is beautiful, but the photograph is very well done. I like the shadows. A lot of times they can ruin a photo, but not here.

Well done Susie, the shadows help set off that photo.

Randy said...

She take after her daddy. Wonderful photograph.

The lines and curve of the sculpture are visual treats; also enjoy the shadow on the snow.
