photo hunt: curvy



In case you missed Puppy last week, here it is again. But for a good reason: this flower sculpture sits in front of the Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, Spain. Which is my choice for this week's theme because of the remarkable curvy architecture. It was designed by Frank O. Gehry. Its brilliantly reflective panels resemble fish scales (Source) It is a fascinating piece of architecture! see for yourself.

  5. So very curvy! It's really cool to see another Gehry building - they're impossible to mistake. :) I live in Los Angeles, which is home to the Walt Disney Concert Hall which he designed.

  6. Those are great photographs of the curvy architecture. I'd love to see that. I've been to the Guggenheim museum in NYC several times and I thought that was very cool but I've never seen anything like the one in Bilboa. Have a great weekend.

  8. MAR - something strange here: Sculpture and architure for CURVES.

    Believe me or not: I found s many sculptures of which we did piactures of from Chile, but they are all bad scans from slides. I'll do them better during the winter. So I ended up with one from Perigod in France.

    Will be posted close to Saturday - if I'm awake.

    btw - this weekend we are moving back to our winterhome - be aware: Mowing with all that stuff.

    Wish you all a marvelous weekend

    btw. We meet at Halloween

  61. Mar, just this morning one of my students and I were looking at photos of modern buildings in the 2008 Almanac for Kids.I was looking at that building and thought about how wonderful it would be to photograph the Museum. I thought too that it would be perfect for PH. And now, you have a photo! Wonderful!

    Have a great weekend, :)

    [I understand about your questioning the 'smelly' week. I'm sure mine will be a bit on the 'not tasteful side of smelly' ---and probably a LOT of them will be.

    I'll be here tomorrow if I can get time to drop by.

    Happy weekend.

  67. Curves in architecture seem to be a common take on this theme. Each and every one of them I have seen is a differentn sort of architectural curve. (I have architectural curves, too.)
