Looking ghastly I mean ghostly. I think nobody loves their reflection this much since Narcissus.

foam said...

lol ..
yes, you may be right..
but soon i will stop.

Monique said...

This is lovely Foam. How is your production with x dell going?

Midsummerprism said...

I think he's looking at you..kinda' fixated..

dianne said...

What a lovely place, everything is so green; nice double reflection Foamie. :) xoxox

/t. said...

i saw
the reflections
even before the moore :)

while not quite as pronounced as your previous double take, this one is still pretty cool -- these are way harder to do than some might think(!)

another nice one, foamie

If there's only one lesson I learned from "An American Werewolf in London", it's that I should stay off the Moores after midnight.

Little Lamb said...

More reflections here.

foam said...

monique,
well my part is all turned in.
i think it's just a matter of putting it together.

prism,
i think the he is a she ..
i think.. hmmm..

dianne,
those areas were green. the grass on the washington mall was quite parched and spare though.

/t.
it was actually taken at the same place. all i did is turn around .. :)
but you are right .. not as pronounced.

pug,
well, yeah, duuuuuh...
you don't wanna break any fangs now .. do you? ..:)

little lamb,
you are very astute .. :)

I like the effect.

Rolf said...

ANNA-LYS said...

anna-lys ..

ThursdayNext said...

I wish you would post moore photos like these, Foamy.

Ruela said...

double cool ;)

foam said...

thursday,
there will be no moore foam reflections to come for a loooong time..

ruela,
double thanks. .. :)

The Phosgene Kid said...

Well, it is something to reflect on anyway...

K9 said...

that same sculpture used to be outside of the atlanta plaze. and the boobs were worn gold amidst the bronze (from rubbings i suppose)

what was your prize for winning the limmerick last year? can u say?

foam said...

phos ..
reflect away then .. :)

k9,
yeah, it's conceivable that there is more then one casting of the sculpture. but perhaps it just moved. they must have cleaned it up .. no obvious rub marks that i saw .

my limerick prize? that's not a secret. i won a lovely handcrafted bookmark with venetian glass which aunty purchased in venice when she was traveling.

boneman said...

you've chekt your e-mail?

Aunty Belle said...

heh..youse in a reflective mood, huh?

Nice photo..an' I read down to see yore other rhymes. Wonderful fun, Foamy!!

X. Dell said...

Hmm. That figure looks a lot like yours.

Oh, you meant the reclining figure that you're photographing.

X. Dell said...

Actually, I'm much more appreciative of the human figure as determined by DNA.

whimsical brainpan said...

An interesting photo Foam. I love the composition.

ANNA-LYS said...

What is a pun?
it sounds fun!

:-D

Helene (aka Kate) said...

love all the figures in the photo!

just came in to say hello! I had a couple of free minutes and thought I would try to catch up a bit... but time here FLYs!~


Interested to know what your production with dell is!!! =]

have a great weekend!

ANNA-LYS said...

dear Henry, dear Henry
women can also stand up!

Rolf said...

transcendental transparent foam

But seriously what sort of weird parent is a trans-parent?

Pink said...

I love Henry Moore. And that Lachaise! Wow.

I didn't know you were off to NYC...saw your photos - made me homesick in this weird kind of way.

I still have some big ties to NYC and yet...its not at all a place that I can call home anymore. I'm sure I'll feel that way about London some day...

Rolf said...

I guess I'm lucky!
All the jobs i have had in my long life has been just a few kilometers away from my home.

I have never been in USA, but I have heard a lot about villages without sidewalks. The only way to go anywhere is by car.

boneman said...

It could be that Prism is speaking of sj.
I dare say, I am also taken by your reflection pictures. The doubles give me ideas about photography.

By and by, it's more for the Sasquatch statue she brought home from Canada...not an actual Pink.
I thougt it was only my words that get mixed up, but, I fear Ruela may still be at the computer screen, staring at the Great Woman.

The Moore also gave me an idea about sculpture.
dang! YOU d'MUSE!
I dunno if it's so original, being as some furniture makers think so highly of their work, but, it kind'a struck me as a comfortable place to sit.
Well, maybe.
That, I'm sure, would be the 'work' side of the project. Making it comfortable.

But, now?
I gotta go read your limericks, which I missed out on somehow.

foam said...

boney ..
a recliner a la moore? go for it. and yes, the work would be in making it comfy, soft and inviting..

foam said...

rolf,
no doubt there are small towns without sidewalks. many do have sidewalks. my town has sidewalks but here in the south, at least where i live, driving a car is so much a cultural thing. i would walk or ride a bike, but i have a rather large commute. today i drove 40 km one way to get to work. and there's no bus or train to take.
ps: are you a trans parent? lol ..

pink..
good to see you! .. yes, one of the highlights this summer was my trip to new york. i thoroughly enjoyed it very much.

anna-lys..
i guess la chaise took care of the standing women .. ;)

thanks, whimsy ..

x.dell
i'm sure moore and some of the other sculptors that create artworks inspired by the human figure feel the same way you do.

helene/kate..
great to see you !!! and the production with x.dell will really be cool. you ought to come listen sometime this fall..

belle,
i'm in a reflective mood cause frankly i don't know anything else to post.

A "reflective mood" is a beautiful thing- especially when it concerns you :)

I think you are a bit too west to get much rain from Hannah- but her bands are starting to reach us now.
My daughter can hardly wait for the gusty winds and thunder.
I love that kid :)

Hope you have a lovely weekend!

foam said...

mayden! .. good to see ya.. :):)
and thank you .. ;)
we should get some rains and a bit of wind tomorrow from hannah, but nothing major at all.
.. and you have as much of a relaxing weekend as possible .. !!
