2 for 1

i took a break today/this from last night. the sculpture is called WE,2008. by Jaume Piensa of Spain. i was able to capture it framed by my sisters laser show..... well i think she may have designed it........very interesting. guessing it's about 12ft tall. so.. two works of art for the price of one. the following is from the biennale web site. enjoy.

'This sculpture celebrates Vancouver’s linguistic and cultural diversity by incorporating multiple alphabets, (Latin, Greek, Russian Cyrillic, Hebrew, Hindi, Japanese, Arabic, Chinese) in an all embracing womb-like human form. Plensa is widely acclaimed for his Public Art installations, having created this work specifically for the Vancouver Biennale.

olympic winter sailing

a tale of 2 ships.. or 2 tales/one ship. i went for a run on the seawall. came across a wonderful impromptu inukshuk-rock balancing piece of art. went home to get my gear to take a shot before the tide wiped it out. did a quick check on the email, and there was a message, inviting me to go for a sail (the lumsden crew). i knew i couldn't get there on time, but thought they might be sailing past my shoot location. so that's it, their boat in the background. i like the shot - west coast style / art,sea,sailing,mountains.

second shot. same deal, i screwed up and missed another invite to go for a sail with the lumsden crew. i was walking home on the seawall, and thought just by chance.. i might see them coming in. and that's their boat, the panacea.(hope i have the name right). i'm thinking.. what are the chances.. given the thousands of people in the city for the games, and all the boats on the water, i'd see that one, twice. cool......... oh, and i did get on board last night for some wonderful oysters and beer. thxs to the colhouns, judy, blair.. (judy, watch your head).
