photo hunt: original


This has been the most difficult theme for me so far, I think. But fun!! After reviewing archives and possible old pictures to scan I settled for a not very original picture because I have posted it already but it is the most original flower sculpture I have ever seen: the lovely Puppy in Bilbao, Spain, in front of the Guggenheim Museum. It is a 43 ft/ 13 meter tall floral sculpture of a West Highland White Terrier puppy executed in a variety of flowers on a steel substructure (with an internal irrigation system) by Jeff Koons .

  3. have to agree with you that this week's theme is one of the most difficult so far. But it was a great take on the theme :D

  4. that's very original indeed, and beautiful to boot! We have something called "infiorata" over here, which is a picture on the ground consisting of a carpet of flowers. But this puppy sculpture beats it! :)

    Thank you for visiting me so early! And for the "Glückwünsche"! :)

  5. That's a nice floral structure. I used to be involved indirectly with such floral float parade in my state, Penang, Malaysia. Penang topped most of the time in the national level and did won a few awards in the Pasadena Floral Parade. Good take this week. Happy weekend.

  16. G'day Mar,

    That's a memorable shot. I've never seen a flower sculpture to compete with that.

    Great work - and you've made me want to visit Spain!

    Cheers

  22. UGH! I'm having a horrible time with this topic too! I have plenty of "original" stuff... but I've posted most of it before too.... AND I have to work again tomorrow so I won't even be around to play! GRRRRR! ... I think I'm still feeling cranky... what do you think? I need a dose of coffee with Mar!

  26. This flower structure is just so lovely and awe-inspiring. What a feast for the eyes.

    ReplyDelete
  27. That's quite the sculpture! I wonder how long it took to make.

    ReplyDelete
  28. OK, I never would have guessed what kind of a puppy that was! :-)

  30. Really nice photo.Ohh I really would love to go to flowers parade sometimes..great entry..

    ReplyDelete
  31. yes I remember, but you could have taken a picture of yourself and pretend that you are an original that's what I thought first for me ! If you have time visit my Writer Cramps I have a nice Italian supper there.

  35. Yes, it was a rather difficult theme. Your photo is so lovely, I would love to see what that giant pup looked like for real.

    Do you think it was hard for those with allergies? :D

    Have a great weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Yes Mar! You're right it's really a beautiful floral sculpture! Hope to see one like that one day!

  40. A floral sculpture of a Westie is definitely original! Perfect choice for this week's theme.

    ReplyDelete
  41. An amazing flower sculpture, and it sounds very high-tech too. It was a difficult theme, certainly I thought so, but you have come up trumps:)

    ReplyDelete
  42. Interesting flower "arrangement"

    Hope you are having a very good weekend!

    ReplyDelete
  43. Oh, yes, I think I remember this one (or a similar?). It's so fun and cute, well worth to show again!

    Oh, what a pity you're going to be away for the big Halloween Party the 31th. Bummer. I agree, we'll start partying earlier - maybe the whole week before? *giggles*

    We will miss you a lot!

  44. Mar, that's a great photo for the theme so who cares if you have posted it before.
    Thanks for visiting

    ReplyDelete
  45. That is definitely an original structure. Love how they have it in flowers. How do you water something like that during a drought season? Have a good weekend.

  48. I love Jeff Koons work, and though you may have posted this before---it is WONDERFUL to see again, dear Mar....The Guggenheim is pretty "ORIGINAL" too....So, in a way, you have two things in one picture! Good For You, my dear Mar...

    I cannot believe I'm the 53rd person to comment!!
