Nude Reflection


I was standing just outside of the door of Elysee when I caught sight of this display and the reflection it was casting on the wall. Elysee is a fine art and jewelry gallery on Canyon Road.

Interesting how the reflection is different from the "art piece."

That is a great capture. The reflection or shadow does not look exactly like the original but more like a seperate work of art on the wall. Interesting. Nicely done Randy.

Joanne said...

Lúcia said...

Beautiful and unexpected! ;-)

Madge @ The View From Right Here said...

Wow... what a great shot that is... isn't it interesting how often our photos are 'accidents!?'

Sharon said...

Wow, that is an amazing shadow.

Lowell said...

For some reason, I find this photograph entrancing. Maybe it's the shadow? Nah!

parker said...

AH! The Mystique of the female form. Beautiful observance!

Luis Gomez said...

Wonderful shot Randy! Really beautiful.

Ron said...

Great shot! It does look like the "shadow" is painted on the wall and not a shadow. Interesting!

PauloSilva said...

Just beautiful! I can't take my eyes out of it.

Magpie said...

Wow! Talk about being in the right place at the right time.

Cool shot, Randy!

Great capture... it is so unusual that the two silhouettes are so diverse.

Now that is different!

Jack said...

Terrific, Randy. I have seen mesh sculpture before, but this artist sure had a very special model! Like the others, I love the way the sculpture is not identical to the shadow.

Birdman said...

What is Lowell talking about? hahahaha

Regina K said...

Very well captured Randy, I am with others unusual that it is not an exact reflection.

Teri said...

This is not the same shadow from the art piece. No way! Did they paint that one on the wall to make it look like a shadow?

becky said...

I'm sure the lighting on this was arranged just so to get this effect. Very cool.

Michaele said...

Hard to believe it is a reflection. They look so different. Great catch.

Stephanie said...

Is that really a reflection??! What a piece of art!

cieldequimper said...

You had me worried for a second. I thought this was the French president's office, the Elysée palace in Paris, lol! Just kidding, if you hadn't said that this was a reflection I'd be wondering about it all day long!
