I’ve seen some fascinating sculptures in Seattle recently, from the striking pieces at the Olympic Sculpture Park…
… to living sculptures at Pike Place Market…
..and that concrete sofa I wrote about earlier at Ballard Corners Park, but my favourite sculptures come from the natural world, like the windows in Arches National Park, sculpted by wind…
…and the winding Snake River Canyon, sculpted by water…
..and the volcanoes surrounding Lake Atitlán, sculpted by fire.

Wow Alisa your choice for this weeks theme is perfect for me, I have a lot of great pictures to share from a fun afternoon in an outdoor sculpture gallery in New Mexico! Your photos are beautiful today and even though I am going to show some man made sculpture I really agree with your comment that natural sculptures are usually my favorites. :). I’ll be back soon with my post…
Hurrah, can’t wait to see your NM photos, LIsa! 🙂
Here is a link to my Sculpture post – full of pictures. 🙂

Just a few…. http://apostadayfor2013.wordpress.com/2013/06/28/travel-theme-sculpture/
Ooh, I have heard about the Hillier Gardens but never seen it, those bronzes are amazing. I love the one of the girl holding onto her hat. 🙂
They are worth a visit. Not far from us, I love visiting. 🙂
All the photos were amazing. Thank you.
Thanks John, glad you enjoyed them. xxx

Lovely shots, Jan – the mountains are amazing but wow, that bristlecone pine trunk is stunning. Wonderful photo. xxx
Thanks! The patterns on those trees make your mind reel.
Ails, do you know what tomorrow’s Travel Theme is going to be yet? If so, could you let me know some time today (leave a comment on my blog or here, doesn’t matter to me), because I don’t have a lot of time tomorrow, so I wanna prepare it tonight =)

Nice posts. I think we need more art in public spaces.
Well… I posted a rather interesting sculpture earlier this week. I should have hung on to that thought for a few days. I’ll have to scratch my head on this one… 😉
Magnificent sculpted views, Ailsa. I enjoyed them very much, and hope you like mine too: http://drieskewrites.wordpress.com/2013/06/28/travel-theme-sculpture/
The sculptures are wonderful. Looks like a must see!
Great sculptures and theme Ailsa. Thanks for sharing hon. 😀 *hugs*
Pingback: Travel Theme: Sculpture | LoganBruin–An Unauthorized Autobiography
I thought for sure a Seattle sculpture blog would include East German Hammering Man, from the front of the Art Museum, but maybe it’s no longer there.
I went with a famous one and one most people can’t figure out. . . ;o) http://loganbruin.wordpress.com/2013/06/28/travel-theme-sculpture/

My Travel Theme for is week
Oh, a difficult theme this week. I never take photos of sculpture(s). Will see what I can come up with. 🙂 Thanks for keeping me on my toes.
Now there’s a great topic, Ailsa! Love that first shot. There are so many amazing contemporary pieces. 🙂

Hi Ailsa, great travel theme this week. Spoilt for choice with the ones you have picked. I particularly like the first two in the Olympic Sculpture Park. Cool, glistening, and modern!
