the photo

Shot mid-April this year.


  1. I've always loved that funny sculpture in front of such an impressive building (just don't ask me to identify either), and your capture of the photographer makes the scene even more perfect. :D

  2. Well, great, Hilda. Thanks very much.

    The building is our very traditional and revered Nelson-Atkins Art Museum, here in town and the "Shuttlecocks" are sculpture by Claes Oldenburg and Coosje Van Bruggen. They're fairly well-known. Most of us here love them. I like shooting them for the blog here, year 'round.

  3. Hilda, you should come see it all.

  4. I love it when you show these pieces! Oldenburg is one of my favourites and these look so wonderful in front of that building. Perfect shot and perfect location!

  5. Klaes never gives up. It would be interesting to see the racquet that goes with this shuttlecock.

  6. Glad you like it, Pat. Thanks. I love shooting them, all through the year, with the different light and seasons.

    Bob--I'd like to have seen his croquet ball for the St. Louis Arch. :)
