Stainless "Chain"

This artwork of stainless steel cut to resemble a chain was designed by James McLeod and is suspended from a trellis in Massey Harris Park on King St W. The park is in the middle of what at one times was the huge complex of factory buildings of the Massey Harris company as well as its head office.  Today the factories have all been replaced by condos and even the old head office building is divided into lofts and so this small park gives all the residents a pleasant green space with grasses, small lawns, and even a splash pad. I have been back twice this week to try and catch  a shadow from this chain but the sun is not cooperating at all!

The sun always comes out when you least expect it, then the darn thing never shines in the way you want it too... Lovely photo all the same.

I was thinking how fabulous the shadows must be, sorry the sun didn't co-operate. It really is a gorgeous structure.

That's cool! I love patterns.

I rather like this. Obviously, leading up to this chain of events, other things needed to occur. Such has a trellis had to be built. But you knew that! :-))

That darn sun! But at least you have no harsh contrast and bad shadows!

I meant to ask "What? You didn't get to ride in a limo on your sweet sixteen birthday party?"

Lovely shot! I'm not familiar with that part of town, so I'll have to see it for myself sometime.

Hey, this is one that I like. Not sure you need the shadow. I like the way you did this one with a full frontal.

A very impressive structure!

The chains seem to go on for ever.

A new take on mail chain... 'air mail chain'.

Th first thing I thought when I saw this pic was "It would be so cool to play with the shadows..."! ;-)

We sure do need some sun soon, me thinks.
