These photos of the C-Curve by Indian sculptor, Anish Kapoor, were taken on freezing cold winter’s morning in London’s Kensington Park. The marvellous stainless steel creation was one of four Kapoor pieces sited across the park for the Seeing the World Upside Down exhibition hosted by the Serpentine Gallery and Royal Parks in 2010-2011.

Some of you will have seen these  shots in earlier posts, but I thought they were perfect for Cee’s challenge for all sorts of reasons. For one thing, the stark silhouettes of trees say ‘winter’, but the bright sunlight also says that life goes on; and the trees themselves, though dormant, are still full of life. I also like the reflections of the couple and the trees in the puddles on the plinth, and the reflections of the puddles in the sculpture. It is all so playful, yet reflective too – and in every sense.

    1. And it was a complete surprise too, Suzanne. We’d just been to Kensington Palace to see an exhibition on dead princesses so needed a bit of a lift. And here it was, this splendid creation.

  1. I couldn’t figure out what kind of photo effects you did on these photos. Then when I scrolled down to read the explanation…then I could see it. Wonderful photos Tish.
