  1. great – now what is it? sculpture?

    • Hahaha, I wondered how many people would make this comment. Unfortunately I was super tired late last night when I posted this, but I will be updating with the story behind today. But yes it is a sculpted piece of art by Alexander Calder. Thanks 🙂

  2. I immediately recognized that as a Calder because I used to live not far away in Big Rapids! Was that taken recently, with the leaves of the trees already out?

    • Hey John, good eye. Yea the piece obviously has been shot to death being one of the staples of Grand Rapids, so I wanted to shoot it in a way I hadnt seen before. And yes it was shot on Saturday so the trees are fully clothed 🙂 Thanks for swinging by!

  3. Terrific composition of a large work of public art. Do you know the name of the artist? Thanks, Sally

    Very nice capture!

  5. Great perspective Nick…Is the sculpture by Alexander Calder? Reminds me of the “Man” sculpture by him here in Montreal that he did for the 1967 World Trade Fair.

    • Hey Martin, you are absolutely correct sir! I will have to look up the “Man” Sculpture. Our city actually adapted this as its logo and is well known as a staple of the town. How well has his “Man” sculpture been received out there? Thanks again 🙂

      • The “Man” hasn’t made it to city logo status here but is a well known landmark for those that make it to the Parc Jeanne-Drapeau island – particularly since it’s the location of the summer long Piknic Electronik festival.

        I don’t normally post links to my own blog on other people’s blogs, but I posted some pics of Calder’s Montreal sculpture (together with other 1967 World Trade Fair sculptures) in March – I think you will see the similarity…

        • WOW you guys have some FANTASTIC sculptures out there!! No worries about posting links, I actually prefer people share their work with my audience both in the comments and on the facebook page! It cant be a creative community if its only me posting 😉 Thanks for sharing Martin

    I really like the composition of the photo and how the curves and colors play off of each other. It’s one thing to see the structure as a whole, but it’s another to be able to see it at a different aspect.
