Whatever floats your boat...
Today I was privileged to see the Sculpture, Rubber Duck by Florentijn Hofman.
Florentijn Hofman is a 37-year-old Dutch artist known for large-scale urban installations.
Rubber Duck is quite a world traveller, having been seen in Holland, France, Brazil, Japan, New Zealand, Belguim, Australia, China, and Azerbaijan. It made its first American appearance last fall in Pittsburgh. This is it's first East coast appearance.
The sculpture, made from PVC and kept inflated by a fan on its supporting barge, is just inches under 40 feet tall. Today is the last day it is on display at the Chrysler Museum of Art's front entrance. I am not sure where it is heading next.
I was able to capture this shot using a wide angle lens, which allows you to be right up on the subject without having to back away to get the entire subject in frame. I edited the picture using lightroom to give it more of an HDR effect and more clarity.
