Calder red

Yay! The Calder stabile has been painted in Calder red! I saw the two guys up there painting and grabbed this shot from a moving bus.
(Provided I have a seat on the bus, I always have the little camera in my hand at the ready. )
.
To learn more about the sculpture and to see how it looked as a red and white patchwork, please see the post of Oct. 12.

Beautiful picture. BTW I had never heard of reformation day before this year. Martin Luther - yes but didn't know there was a day involved. Oh and thanks for the visit and comment.

The white paint must have been a base coat then. Looks great now! You should have a wonderful view very soon when the fence comes down.

Oh yes! I remember this! That color is spectacular with the cloud-mottled blue sky. Zip!

OH gracious! There was a Calder sculpture right outside of Art's federal building where he used to work in Chicago. They look so alike.

Hello beautiful Dina.
Well a rule isn't a rule until you have broken it. So I am breaking my blogging schedule ha ha.

Oh my God there goes my interpretation the sculpture has been painted. My head is spining round all that red is too dynamic to focus on anything but red.
Maybe at a later date I will come up with a more sophisticated interpretation.

We also have a picture of this sculpture - taken from the tourist bus around the city. I now know a little more about what it is! Thank you!

That red against the clear blue sky looks very nice, Dina!

If I were you, I'd get off and try to take a close up photo of those workers on top. It would make a great shot ... But well, that's only me. :) I know it's impractical and probably impossible to stop and get off if you're on the bus.

Hi Dina! Can't wait to see the Calder back to the famous red...
Amazing to find your Swiss pictures! Great shots...
For the time being Blogtrotter is departing Armenia. It leaves you however with a view that Tsar Nicholas didn’t see… ;))
Have a great week!
