Odd Shot zoomzoom?

This is where to go for Odd Shots. Just post your photo--odd in some way--and comment here that you have participated so others can find your post. Click the Odd Shot Camera on the sidebar to see the Odd Shot details. I add new players to the blogroll fairly regularly, but it may take a while to remove those no longer participating.

Is someone rushing by? Now you see him now--or do you see him? This sculpture that we saw in the outdoor sculpture exhibit at Maryhill Museum was designed to create an image of motion. I did not realize how well it succeeded till I looked at the picture above. A different angle and a closer shot show how it was done.

Sometimes you see a perfect Odd Shot on a blog that is not participating with us. I want to share one I saw yesterday--stop over at Victoria Daily Photo.

We are out and about. Internet connection tonight? Maybe, maybe not. The campground has it in season, but we are off season, so it may not be available. I will visit when I get a chance.

In the first shot I thought th figure was made of glass - never thought of metal. Some artist - odd shot without a camera!

Mine is here

These shots are so intriguing! Odd shot within an odd shot! Like wheels within wheels! Great capture!

Here is mine:

That's incredible! Whoever had that idea is very creative, and I love that first shot of yours.

The artist is a very resourceful one. Quite incredible lesson in perception.

This is brilliant. It looks like a double exposure until you look closely. Excellent.

What an amazing sculpture! I've never seen anything like it. Love the illusion. Thanks so much for sharing this one.

Mine's up too, though my mystery man is not nearly so sophisticated.

Cool odd shot. First I thought that it was some how done with water. Funny how everyone had different theories

I love Maryhill, Mrs. Snapper turned me on to it and we've been there a few times (it's near her family). I don't remember this sculpture though so maybe it's new.

My Oddshot is up now over at GDP.

Cheers!

What a neat sculpture -- that's one I could look at many times and always see something a little different!

The 1st shot really is odd, Katney. I thought maybe it was a ghost or an odd shaped person walking really fast! Great job on this one. Mine is up now also.

diXymiss said...

Fascinating effect in that first shot! Good catch, Katney. Glad you pictured other views, so we could see how it was accomplished.

Lilli & Nevada said...

That must be new as i don't remember seeing that when we stopped there a few yrs ago.

Katney said...

The outdoor sculpture exhibit changes every year.

Thanks for the link. I'd love to participate in oddshots but since I've retired I find I have a violent reaction to anything smacking of regularity. I can't even handle the once a month CDP theme days!

I love this sculpture. Even in your photo it looks like it's moving.
