Black & White Sunday: Sculpture

I reckoned I had nothing to post for Paula’s Black & White Sunday: Sculpture, until I remembered a visit to a Sculpture Park three years ago…. So I may be a few days late, but apparently that doesn’t matter.

Here’s one I found from then (almost would have done for the Creepy WP challenge, too!):

Unsettling sculpture....

Unsettling sculpture….

Somehow the top eye socket doesn’t look quite empty (something to do with the shadow and light), but the bottom one certainly does…

  1. Wow, that is really creepy..imagine going for a walk in the woods and coming cross this! Yikes 😮

  2. Interesting and so very haunting, love that it is in black and white.

  3. That is one massive head! I love it in B&W—good job. Ω

  4. What is the sculpture made of? Nice shot BTW Sue.

  5. Oh my, when I first looked at it I thought why didn’t you posted it for “creepy”. Thank you, Sue, this is far more than I have expected and I always expect a lot from you 🙂 If you wonder if I l like the processing you did here- I love it!

  7. I like that sculpture a lot. And the B+W works well too, Sue.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  8. Oooh… That is creepy for sure, Sue! You are right about the top eye socket…brrr… It is watching us!

  9. Oh, yes, creepy… and I see what you mean about the top eye socket. Great photo though.

  10. Unsettling it is. Are those spikes of green in the grass, or is it my 3am eyes? Beautiful composition if not beautiful subject matter!

  11. I agree about the eyes, I much prefer the top one. Was this garden at your side of the country? I do love sculpture!

  12. The way you have framed the sculpture makes your photo into an expression of its own. Quite a spooky, disturbing or unsettling expression. A very strong photograph.

      Many thanks, Otto….I spent a bit of time getting the composition originally, and when I found the image again today, I converted it to monochrome to strengthen the unease, as it were. I very much appreciate your comment 🙂

  13. What an impressive sculpture! I agree with you about it being creepy, especially in B&W. 😕

  14. Very creepy indeed Sue. Stumbling upon this I am afraid would bring out a serious squeal form me. 🙂

  15. Very good, Sue. It took a while for my eyes to adjust as the shadows provide an element of camouflage. Where is teh Park? – I like its wildness

  16. This is a wonderful photo, Sue. You truly captured all those waves of disturbingness. It’s like some kind of portal to the deep subconscious, that murky place were most of us fear to go. It has a certain beauty too.

  17. yes, kind of creepy, I agree. Works great as a B&W photo.

  18. Very good! I like this one, unsettling or not 🙂 Reminds me that I want to go to the Yorkshire Sculpture Park this Autumn. (yikes! Did somebody say the A word?)
