When I got there, they had a sign that said no indoor photography. So I shot up the outside of the place. Here are two:

He flipped it CW. Note his shadow.:wink:

Nice PS work getting the horizon where it probably should be. :eek::rolleyes:

One pic worth um, how many words? Explain #2 sculpture please.

Inquiring minds...

Thank you for all the confusion and comments!

Here's another abstract view of the thing:

But if I step back a bit, it's clear that this is a large polished stainless steel structure, in the shape of a natural quartz crystal, with slaggy cuts, in the middle of a field:

That fractured shiny thing is cool, but I like the wolf best of the lot. There's something I find consistently appealing about contrasting a sunlit object against a cloudlessly dark (as rendered by infrared) sky.

Thanks keirin! I like that look too (as well as using a red filter with b&w film) and I shoot it when I can. This is not one of those times, the dark background here being a dark window in an alcove. The sun in Arizona is so intense that when metering sunlit subjects as mid-tones, normal shadows go absolutely black. Here's another picture with a lighter background so you can see what was really back there. (I hope it doesn't spoil the illusion of the picture.)
