Balancing Act

When I went walking at Garry Point Park in Steveston, BC, I found an interesting freeform outdoor sculpture. I call it "Balancing Act." Out at the end of the point, looking towards the Strait of Georgia, was a cluster of driftwood balanced artistically.

Be sure to look along the shoreline. Each vertical stick is capped with a balanced rock, shell, or another stick. After the recent rain and wind storm, I wonder if it survived. If not, I bet the local artist will find new media on shore to create even better sculptures. -- Margy

  5. Thanks everyone for stopping by to comment. I am used to finding balanced rocks along the shore, but this was a first for me, balanced pieces of driftwood.
