This stands all year outside the Edward Day Gallery on Queen Street.It is called 'Into the Blue". My favourite time to see it is on a really snowy day.

Wow. The top shot is stunning. I love the shade of the blue in the bottom shot, as well as all the graffiti behind it.

A well deserved HL. :)

Shayne told me he uses a paint that absorbs light, so the blue is amazing in real life. He also told me it costs a fortune. makes me happy, so it's got to be worth it : )

I quite like the dayglo smiley face in the bottom one too :)

Your shot of the sculpture reminds me very much of b'fish's shots of abandoned construction sites near Moscow

I dont really like this sculpture. It reminds me of dead trees, although where you live, tree probably do lose their leaves during part of the year

swamprose says:

so right, Jigalong. Trees here are totally bare from November to May, so it doesn't mean dead at all. Interesting difference in perspective..
