Foto Finish Friday :: The Ones That Didn't Make It

Friday, March 27, 2009
I have decided to make Foto Finish Friday a chance to feature and 'finish' my own photographs, rather than someone else's. I will choose from the many photos that I took for my Project 287, that did not 'make the cut.' The photo below, I took on the W. Georgia side of the Vancouver Art Gallery. It's part of the main feature of the grounds, there ~ a lovely stone-sculptured fountain that has several sides, depicting a nymph-like creature, climbing up the rocky slope. Creator, Alex Svoboda used as his inspiration for this magnificent piece the legends of the Celts, Gauls and Britons, the forebearers of of the earliest British Columbians. He carved this magnificent piece from 18 ft-high black marble, which came from Carrara, Italy. The design centred around a motif of water, and the fountain commemorates the union of the Crown Colony of Vancouver Island with the mainland ~ 1966.
