Since summer sports are over and fall sports are just getting started, I have taken a bit of a break from photographing action and looked for other subjects to capture. The other day I found this sculpture in downtown Rogers, AR. The sculpture actually includes two or three of these rusty blossoms as well as a little surprise on one of the leaves.
A close up of the center of the bloom reveals the creativity and attention to detail of the artist. I really like this kind of stuff.
Looking at one of the leaves one finds a little surprise, a rusty bug. Actually he's not that little, but he is another part of the detail of the piece. If you look again at the first photo you will discover the surprise that that blossom is created from shovel and spade heads, welded and shaped into the flower. I am sure there is a chemical application to accelerate and temper the rust. Very creative.
Like most bugs, this one has adapted to his environment by taking on a similar color. I really like this touch.
Way cool and your photography is always great.ReplyDelete

Thank you, but all of the credit goes to the artist.Delete
Very nice, I like the way they used the shovels to make the flower, the rusty bug is cool. There is a chemical process that speeds up the rusting for things like this.ReplyDelete
It took me a few minutes to see the shovel heads because I was so focused on getting the photo.Delete
