Upside Down, Inside Out
I discovered last Friday that the Phoenix Art Museum had moved this huge sculpture called "Upside Down, Inside Out" by Anish Kapoor to a new location so I decided to try again to get a good photo of it. I've taken many photos of this sculpture with very little luck but, this one is the best I've gotten. Kapoor is the same artist who created "Cloudgate" the big stainless steel sculpture in Chicago that everyone lovingly calls "The Bean".
This is the type of photo I usually get. All washed out because the automatic setting is seeing all that black so it opens up wide. If I manually set the camera, the sculpture turns out a black blob and you can't see the shape of it. So I'm thrilled! I finally got a decent shot of it.
By the way, wouldn't you just love to see how the museum staff moves these huge sculptures from place to place? I'd really enjoy seeing that.
