Untitled: A Light Dusting of Snow


We're getting more snow! I snapped these just as the flakes started to fall to show Untitled in a slightly different way. See yesterday's photo to compare.

  1. Now that's a frosty top (or whatever it's supposed to be). Snow on this object is interesting - makes it harder for the viewer to understand at a glance what it's supposed to be. Oldenburg sometimes lets his subjects become deformed, like his droopy sinks mans of sheets of colored plastic, but they are always identifiable. Just type his name into Google Images.

    We're far enough south that we haven't had more than flurries yet. Let it stay that way.

  2. Yea! Snow. It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.

    I appreciated your comments about this not being the time for building and enterprise start-ups. But, there are two shopping centers being built in the western part of Little Rock right now. I hate that the downtown is left to decay while sprawl happens.

  3. That's really cool. Neat to see the contrast between yesterday and today.

  4. I like today's scene a lot more. All that white, the very-red red and the guy passing by. Very neat!

  6. waouh...on dirait une grosse carotte dans la soupe. je préfère cette version sous la neige. tu as de la chance d'avoir autant de neige (même si cela ne doit pas être tout les jours agréables).

    Waouh ... it looks like a big carrot in the soup. I prefer this version under the snow. You have a chance to have as much snow (though it should not be any pleasant day).

  7. Like Olivier I was thinking it now looked like a giant carrot. Interesting contrast between this pic and the one from yesterday.

  8. I thought a carrot too and then I saw Olivier`s comment :)
    Now our colours of landscapes start to be identical.
    What do you think, will your snow be until Christmas or is it melting soon?
    Have a nice evening, we have here 8.15 in the morning

  10. Just a light dusting???

    I agree with many of your commenters, I thought maybe a top, a carrot, or an abstract dreidel.

  11. I do like the snow too. It softens the features. I find it amazing what a difference a day can make. Great capture of the flurries.

  12. A large orange carrot in the white snow! Lovely stuff!

  13. I'd love to know what it is called.... I'm getting mental images of carrots and radishes!

  14. Excellent design, Kate. I like the guy passing by the side to balance the shot.
    I remember a "dusting" that ended up as a foot of snow on April Fools Day a few years back.

  15. A giant bath plug? How funny.

    I'm a bit shocked to see your snow. Right now it's sort British Lousy here. But at least things don't grind to a halt. We just wrap up and moan. It's this weather that made us great!!!

    Greetings, Kate and trusting all's well with you.

  16. Hi kate..at first glance..i thought it was a giant carrot in the snow :)

  17. It's like a giant lollypop! You're lucky to get some snow for Christmas time, here rain and wind, wind and rain...No snow to carry away but so many dead leaves!

  18. Nice shot. The contrast between snow and non-snow is great. Ah, Minnesota, you can't design a sculpture without thinking what it would look like buried in snow.

  19. Well we got some of your snow down here in Ohio. I think it is 4 inches so far and more to come. Lots of wildlife here looking for food and water. I am happy to give them what they need.

    I remember this scene from yesterday and am somewhat surprised you went back out in this mess to get the new snow-covered photos. It is nice to see the difference though. Is it also really cold and windy? That's what we got. All the schools are closed and lots of wrecks on the roads. And it is windy and cold.

  20. Today the top looks like a big cone-shaped carrot.

  21. Interesting sculpture, I like the snowy view. I wonder what it actually is.

    Looks like a big stopper and drain. Hopefully, the snow will be sucked in. Traffic during the commutes is a nightmare to say the least.

  22. I'm with olivier and heather et al - its all a bit carroty

  23. It's very cold here today and snowing too.

  24. Comparing both photos has been a great thing to do. I like the combination. I can't believe the news when I see the snowfalls. Here there are people swimming and suntanning in the South and forecasts say warm temperaures will last for a week. Al Gore is right about climate.

  25. Hi Kate, I think the plan for the ABC Wednesday is to restart the alphabet after we finish Z. Start in anytime, if you want. There really are no rules.

  26. Kate, I've been out of town for a few days and have had very limited internet access, so I didn't see your snow from the 1st. AUGH!! I just returned from Las Vegas where my friends were all upset with 59-degree weather.

    I love snow. . . .as long as I experience it through photos!!!

  28. It looks nice. In the previous photo, the tip of this red cone is resting in a pit, and that pit seems to have been filled up. So it seems like a lot of snow.

    Thanks for your comments on my blog. To answer your question - Hardly anyone uses bicycles anymore, except the courier boys who deliver bills and documents. (The credit card and mobile phone bills, among other things such as stock broker statements are delivered by courier here.) Also it is not safe to be riding bikes. For that matter it is not safe to be riding scooters. In the past whenever I saw pics of China, invariably I saw bicycles but I don't see them anymore there either.

  30. Reminds me of a giant eraser....those types we used to put on the end of our pencils :)

    I like it with the snow best....and isn't 10 inches a bit more than a dusting??

  31. It looks like a carrot in the snow, but in the other sunny photo makes it look like a cake decorator. Thanks for braving the cold to take a contrasting picture.

  32. Amazing photo, Kate! Love snow's pictures! The contrast with another photo is amazing, too!
