Budda Beads and Belly Buttons

Belly Button, (nickname), Huon Pine, Peter Adams, 2017.

There are two large sculptures at Windgrove by Peter Adams that were too difficult to transport to Hobart for professional photographs.  Plus, the photographer’s studio couldn’t hold them.  So on rare evenings when it wasn’t windy, cloudy, cold, rainy, or crowded with guests, we photographed them in his front yard.  For you photo geeks out there, this is using a little Fuji mirrorless APC camera to mimic a 4×5 camera. The resulting image is 14K x 10K. At full res you can count the legs on the little lady bug up on the top left corner.

Look closely at this next one.  Peter has carved the pine so thin that you can see light through it!
