20. Interpretation of Art


0Y3B1756-Animal Stencil

In Sarasota, Florida, there is a pleasant Bay Front Walk winding around the edge of the bay by some condominiums, past the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall, the Sarasota Garden Club and other venues along the shore. It affords wonderful views of the bay along with the refreshing breezes so welcome during some of our warmer weather. While strolling around this area, I captured an unusual plaque / picture (?). It really looks like a “stencil” billboard or could hark back to the “negative” from camera film. It is quite slender when viewing it from the side and when looking it from the front you see a rather abstract image — it looks like a galloping horse to me.


This plaque really accommodates those walking here since its picture allows the viewer to look beyond and into the bay area through the stenciled picture. An added benefit to its placement is that the stencil allows the breezes to flow through the picture.


Along this same walk, is another attraction — a purple cow standing near the Van Wezel Performing Arts Hall. Perhaps it appeared during the days when cities and towns were decorating cows, pigs, and geckos and exhibiting them by their business establishments and city centers. It reminds me of the nonsense poem, “The Purple Cow” — “I never saw a purple cow. . .”

An enthusiastic amateur photographer, I enjoy picturing the events, people, animals and things in my life. And so joining in the "52 Week Challenge" of interpreting life through a lens sounds as if it will be a lot of fun -- presenting my view through the lens and seeing how others in our photography group interpret their views concerning a given subject.
