Doddington Hall Sculpture Exhibition

I visited Doddington Hall today to look at the sculpture exhibition that was arranged around the grounds. It comprised 350 pieces from 70 artists and was curated by David Waghorne. Very interesting and good for photography.

Yorkshire Sculpture Park

Headed off up to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park for some photography and it rained!

The weather was dismal – drab grey sky and rain.

First stop was the YSP cafe for home cooked chips and a hummus & olive wrap, followed by scones with cream & jam…yummy!

I used my infrared converted Pentax *ist D and a 28mm f/2.8 lens for today’s photography. No tripod, flash or filters. I was lucky enough to catch the back end of the exhibition by Spanish artist Jaume Plensa. A few of his statues were still on display in the grounds, sadly I missed the indoor exhibition as that closed on the 22nd.

Photo365 – Day 354 – Stand still

I went to Yorkshire Sculpture Park for a few hours today. Took a bag full of Pentax kit and the iPhone. I love using the iPhone. If only you could control focus and exposure – it would be even better.
I came back with just short of 400 shots. I saw some new sculptures today by Joame Plensa – I’ve uploaded one to the gallery – Spiegel, 2010. His work is fascinating top look at, and photograph. Well worth a trip over if you like sculptures.

This one is by Chinese Artist Sui Jianguo, it’s a representation of the tunic worn by Chairman Mao.

As I approached I spotted a robin perched on top looking at me. I took this photo with the iPhone and then proceeded to get my Pentax out. It had the 12-24mm on and I needed to switch to the 80-320mm as I unmounted the lens (quietly) the robin flew off. Missed a good one!

Photo365 – Day 344 – Empowerment

Empowerment is the title of this sculpture over the Brayford near the Waterside Shopping centreĀ  in Lincoln. There’s a standard view of this so I tried to get it from a different angle…below. I don’t think this angle actually works as well, but I like the pigeons.

Photo365 – Day 321 – Gran Canaria Sculpture

A sculpture found on the Paseo Costa Canaria in Playa Del Ingles. I used the hipstamatic camera in the iPhone and chose grainy black and white film mode.
