Green Eye Of The Pyramid-III

Spent the afternoon at the Seattle Art Museum again. Rain and cold all day so ducked into the Museum again today for a photo. Watched these two women discussing the merits of this piece of artwork. Loved the composition of this shot.

I like the way you captured this, and don't you wish you could hear their conversation.

I love everything about this Constance and have made it a fav. The composition is brilliant, perspective, the pop of green and the 2 figures in the centre, make for a really really stunning shot!

I agree the composition makes a the shot a great narrative (if that makes sense). Is the green triangle leaded glass or resin? It looks like the former to me but that would make it incredibly heavy! We have some small works by Emma Camden ( http://www.emmacamden.co.nz/blue.html) which have the same thick translucent quality.

@palusami kiln cast leaded glass and I think it is that heavy! Thanks for the comments.

Nice candid. I have not been to an Art Museum in years.

I love this--listening to an art discussion is always entertaining to me, for some reason. I visited MOMA a couple of months ago to see Tim Burton's show. I couldn't believe how much noise/chatter everyone was making. I guess I'm one of the few that like to "just ponder."

I love the generations - the older woman is so beautiful to me as she is intensely engaged and sharing with the younger. It is a beautiful shot, nicely framed by the art in the foreground and background. Wonderful capture, Constance. :)

@clarissajohal --- I'm one that will ponder out loud. I can think better when I hear myself talk. I guess it's like talking to someone else .... oh yea it's me. ;-)

Another great photo, Constance. Clear, bright, and full of human interaction.

@cattwoman Do you reside in the PNW? I have not been to Frye recently. It will be my winter focus.

@seattle not any longer. I grew up in Federal Way and surrounding burbs. Can't help but miss it. I live vicariously through those that take pictures!

@cattwoman I hope you enjoy the street photos of Seattle. It is what I enjoy the most.

@seattle I confess, I do too! it is a vibrant city with many facets.
