Shadow Shot Sunday 36 - Mexico City


Sculptures always seem to be an excellent source of shadow shots especially when the sun is shining brightly and the shadows are crisp and sharp...





This sculpture by Mexican artist Gurria is on permanent display outside the entrance to the Museum of Modern Art on Reforma here in Mexico City. It is entitled Rio Papatlan, and it is easy to see how the great coils and sweeps of black metal are supposed to embody the swirling currents of this Mexican river.

Fabulous shadow shot! I think that'll make Tracy's collage for sure - it's a real winner!

Ralph said...

The shadows add that organic, life-like view that enhances the man-made sculpture of steel. The look of life and metalworking is beautiful!

Dimple said...

It does evoke a turbulent river. Thanks for sharing this sculpture and its shadows!

It is a fascinating sculpture and impression of the river in black steel. Very elegant and a magnificent piece for the museum to display for all to see. I like it a lot.

Hey Harriet said...

What a stunning sculpture! I like how you photographed it from all those different angles, showing such a variety of shadowy patterns. And of course allowing us to see more of the beautiful art object itself!
