Swirls and reflections at the Olympic Sculpture Park


Walkers are reflected in the windows of PACCAR Pavilion at the Seattle Art Museum's Olympic Sculpture Park, juxtaposed with artist Sandra Cinto's work Encontro das Águas (Encounter of Waters) Tuesday October 1, 2013. Cinto completed the work in April of 2012, a site-specific mural of tides made of blue paint and a silver paint pen. The brief on the Seattle Art Museum's website says the work portrays "a titanic image of water that expresses both renewal and risk." Cinto is Brazilian and based in São Paulo.

As the weather starts to turn, I start to look indoors for feature ideas. I came across a listing for this work by Sandra Cinto at the Olympic Sculpture Park and hung around to make some pictures there on Tuesday. It is a beautiful piece that envelops the viewer. I shot the above reflection in the window to add depth to the texture. Then, Giselle Brazzola brought 9-month-old Daniel into the colorful play area from the cold, and I went inside to make a different picture entirely.


Daniel Hershko, 9 months, looks warily at family friend Giselle Brazzola as she takes off his heavy coat to play in the kids area in PACCAR Pavilion.
