STL CDPB On The Road: Seattle - Olympic Sculpture Park

Olympic Sculpture Park in Seattle is a relatively new development of the Seattle Art Museum. It is built around and over city streets, a highway and waterfront railroad tracks and contains terrific contemporary work. One of the works is incorporated into a pedestrian bridge over the railroad. Seattle Cloud Cover by Teresita Fernández is a translucent wall on one side of the walkway, composed of soft color and shape suggesting the city's skies.

WHAT FEELS SATISFYING RIGHT ABOUT NOW: my own cozy home. My own bed. No more driving for hours and hours through the wilderness (although some wags might put a transit of St. Louis in that category).

TOMORROW: More Northwest stuff? There was so much to see and shoot. Oh, but tomorrow is Thursday.

At first I thought you had had one too many toddies on the plane and had done some kind of weird Photoshop thing. Now I see. The artwork is is fascinating, and the young man that is sillhouetted makes makes for a very interesting photograph. Home again, home again, jiggety jig!

I like the composition of the photo with the man in the foreground unclear and the fantastic colors in the background!

I love participatory art. The pedestrian added another layer to the work. And your photo added yet another layer!
Welcome back.
