It looks like a whirlwind landing in the water, wonderful!
I love your description of what it looks like. Thank you.
Some kind of a buoy?
Although it’s fixed to the harbour floor, it could well be, but it doesn’t bob around. I’m not sure if it lights up at night.
So, that is a very good take on that prompt, Hugh! Also, it is a lovely place in particular.
Thank you, Erika. This piece of water art can be found in the marina in my home city of Swansea. The area has been redeveloped over the years and looks very nice. It’s a lovely place for taking a walk.
It is very beautiful and you are lucky to live that close to this gem. I love places like this… charming indeed.
That’s a beauty Hugh is it in your neck of the woods💜
Yes, it’s in Swansea Marina, Willow. A strange sight in the water.
Teal, aqua, wonderfully weird, it has it all, Hugh! Maybe a wi-fi device for boats? A sprinkler system? An alien homing device? Maybe just a random sculpture…
I rather like the idea of an alien object, Terri. It does look rather strange when you see it in the water. But, yes, I think it’s a sculpture made for when the marina was redeveloped. It’s an entirely different looking area now from how it once was.
At least it “goes” with the marina. When I lived in Sacramento, the City approved an ugly, random pig sculpture to place in front of the new Golden 1 Arena. The community was in an uproar because it wasn’t from a local artist.
I heard of communities being in an uproar about outside art many times, Terri. It always makes me wonder why the people in charge of the cities and towns where it happens didn’t first approach local artists. Sometimes, I think it’s more about ‘who you know’ rather than ‘what you know.’ Did the pig sculpture last, or was it taken away?
Crazy, huh? As far as I know, it’s still there. It’s not horrible IMHO, but a different one would have been better.
Did you ever take a photo of it, Terri?
No. I’ll have to find the website and send it to you if you wish.
No worries, I’ll look it up, Terri. It must be on Google, somewhere.
this should give you an idea. https://www.sacog.org/post/regional-collaboration-golden-1-center
Thanks, Terri. I had to stare at the image for quite some time to focus on the shape of the pig.
LOL, exactly, Hugh. I suppose the right angle makes a difference…ahh modern art ;/
