A yin yang of earth and water formed below the air,
Carrying the winds of Scotland blowing in my hair.
The man-made piece titled “Landform” by Charles Jencks located just outside the Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art in Edinburgh, Scotland; seen from an angle above looking like a yin-yang symbol. As I was traveling above land and water frequently during this period, as well experiencing much transition aside from the season changing winter to spring, being around this transforming land felt reflective; especially while no one was around.
The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art was built in 1825-1828 by William Burn and was originally built for John Watson’s Hospital, a school now incorporated in George Watson’s College. In 1980 the national collection of modern art moved from it’s original home, in Inverleith House at the Royal Botanic Gardens, to this neo-classical building. The sculpture is said to be inspired by chaos theory or Seurat’s La Grand Jatte
This is one of the images I had included in my Edinburgh calendar (I only spent a day and a half there; the full story of the first day can be read when you see the calendar’s description). I’ve kept most of the images in my calendar hidden. A few however have noted that they like this particular yin yang image; and last year one person suggested that I make it visible to public.
I delayed in publishing this image as there were still many artsy ideas I had wanted to present first; and I was the sort who didn’t like posting things frequently in order to allow my viewers time between each posting/publishing to catch up to my works (and I like getting visits on old works too). I’ve decided however, that I’m going to be more lenient about this from now on – doesn’t mean I will be posting more from now on, but if anyone is ever interested in seeing any other one of my hidden calendar images, published in my Redbubble portfolio, I will try not to hesitate from posting it even if I had posted something else recently (I also have some images on postcards at Zazzle, that I do not have in Redbuble).
Meanwhile, St. Patrick’s day is coming up, so I thought it was a good time to share some green!
As is. Taken with an Olympus FE-340 on April 19, 2009 – as spring began it was almost time for me to leave Europe…
