Spirit Catcher/Weekend Reflection

Reflection of Spirit Catcher, Barrie, Ontario

Has the water captured the spirit of the Spirit Catcher?

I have posted about the Spirit Catcher before in this post: January 3, 2011. Suffice it to say here that Spirit Catcher is a sculpture by Ron Baird, a well-respected sculptor in this part of the world.

Someone else posted the Spirit Catcher recently. I love this sculpture. The best thing in Barrie, I think.

I'm not quite sure what a spirit catcher is and does, but it seems sharp enough to catch anything. Great reflection!

From just your title I didn't expect something quite so big!

That's a very 'reflective' image!

Spectacular piece of sculpture. We were at Ron Baird's Studio during the last Studio Tour... fascinating place.

Riet said...

What a beautiful sculpture and I love your reflection photo

Barb said...

Very interesting sculpture. I like it. It looks like quite a modern part of the city. Or perhaps the city is all modern?

Wonderful capture!

I really like this perspective of the Spirit Catcher!

Brilliant.

Dimple said...

Interesting sculpture and reflection. I had heard of dream catchers, but not of this.

Julie Storry said...

The sculpture well reflects the concept of First Nations, in my opinion. And yes, captured by water will do the trick.

What is that in the foreground - the skeleton for a fountain yet to be turned on?

Janie said...

The water captured the spirit, and the photographer captured the sculpture, water, and spirit. Fascinating photo, EG!

Pat said...

This is a beautiful crisp, clear reflection photo!

Stephanie said...

Nicely captured!

LONDONLULU said...

Love the idea of a spirit catcher (mainly hear of dream catchers on the U.S. side :) -- you 'caught' it beautifully.

The sculpture is striking and makes a softer reflection. The reflected tree adds a splash of yellow to those waters.

Bises,

I love the ripples in the reflection

MARGARET GOSDEN 2 said...

A great long shot including the reflection!

Viola said...

such a very special spirit catcher! And yes, the water has captured the spirit :))

Francisca said...

Yes, the reflection does make the spirit catcher look more other-worldly. It must be very cool to see the quills rock in the wind.
