Weekly Photo Challenge: Converge


Converge:  verb (used without object), converged, converging.
1.  to tend to meet in a point or line; incline toward each other, as lines that are not parallel.
2.  to tend to a common result, conclusion, etc.

For this abstract shot I photographed one of the many exhibits in sculptures by the sea in Sydney this year.  It was Alejandro Propato’s permanent sunrise exhibition that captured my imagination and I thought a good convergence challenge photo.  It was 45 metres long and he used 6 kilometres of nylon line.  Impressive.

Of course I have cropped it in to take the distraction of the crowds on the sand away.  Here is the original.

The sculpture in the foreground is a large frying pan by artist Andrew Hankin entitled ‘We’re fryin’ out here which alerts us to the dangers of the sun.

    • Thanks GM, I knew I had taken a picture of this exhibit but I wasn’t sure how close I was. It would have been better to have had a keen eye at the time and take some photos up close to highlight this amazing and creative sculpture. Luckily my crop in wasn’t too blurry 🙂

  9. I’m amazed at the creativity of the artist – and would never have known you had to crop the photo as much as you did, Karen, without showing us 🙂 Great photo for the challenge!

    • I know Stacy and the patience to feed all that string to four points on the beach! I was lucky when I cropped in I wasn’t sure it would show up okay but surprisingly it was alright. Wished I had of thought of that angle when I was there it would have been a lot sharper. Thanks for stopping by Stacy 😀
