Art and a pink monkeyflower in a native plant garden…

iPhone Photo Friday…

The iPhone went to the sculpture garden. These photos were taken with the native camera on an iPhone4 and then processed on an iPad after we got home. The apps used were Iris Photo Suite, Dynamic Light and Snapseed on the image of the sign for a little grunge.

This is my all time favorite because I got so excited when I realized that Calder lined up with the space needle. Five thousand people a day probably take the same picture, but still I was thrilled!

You can read about the garden here. It is important to understand the setting which is on a hill, overlooking the water. The weather has an impact on your experience of looking. Scale plays an important part.


Sometimes the backdrop is the city skyline.

Sometimes, the sky and water form the backdrop.

Sometimes, small natural looking plantings forming groves embrace the art.





Who forgot their cardboard box?

Psych, it is painted steel. The sculptor wanted to contrast the material with the concrete bench.
