Sunday Stills: Four Points

This week's challenge refers to the four points of the compass: north, south, east, and west. Participants were instructed to point the camera away from the primary subject toward the "four points."

Yesterday was our first full day of sunshine in -- well, seemingly forever. So I took my camera with me. On the way home from the barn Indy and I stopped at one of his favorite parks to capture photos of one of my favorite public sculptures.

As part of Wilsonville's public art program, the following sculpture is on display at Town Center Park near the Chamber of Commerce's Visitor Center:

The sculpture is life-size and ties in beautifully with the Chamber's Oregon Horse Country campaign to promote equine-tourism in the area. Here is my "PhotoShopped" view:

Using my primary subject as reference, here are the four points of the compass....


North from the other side of the Visitor Center:




To see the view from other compass points, visit Sunday Stills.
