I made this picture in İzmir. İt is a modern sculpture of iron made by the famous turkish sculpturer Bihrat Mavitan. İt is located right on the shore of İzmir's harbour and represents a ship. The young girl was going up and down on it, and seemingly enjoying this unusual playgorund.
The dimm late winter afternoon light, the strength of the sculpture and the loneliness of the girl impressed me.
Günlük yaşantımıza giren sanat, daha kolay algılanabilen sanat oluyor.
Bihrat Mavitan'ın İzmir Konaktaki bu demir heykeli de bir geminin omurgasını temsil ediyor, ve İzmirlilerKonakta geçirdikleri saatlerde, bu omurganın içinde dolaşmaktan, üzerine oturmaktan zevk alıyorlar. Aynen buradaki genç kız gibi.

The clear, sharp - brown and white falt stones bordered in black - contrasts with the black and red skeleton of the ship. The little girl in red, with her arms wide, trying to balance herself adds to the dynamics of the sculpture - while the strands of steel move wide & upwards, the arms of the girl are spread wide and downwards. Great sculpture by Bihrat Mavitan. The photograph with the girl adds a lot of liveliness to the picture.
The Blue sea and the white-blue clouds are a perfect bacdrop to the red and black objects in the foreground.
Thanks for sharing.

This is an interesting and eye-catching piece of art. So probably it is a ship, I could also see it as the ribs of a whale. In any case it has been well placed by the sea. The girl seems to be an art lover of a special kind, which the artist probably would appreciate. You captured her nicely between two "ribs".

Hi Mesut !!
perfect POV incorporating so many elements...... perfect sculpture for the water front.
I like the stone slabs forming a strong pattern in the floor and the colour of the steel.

Interesting and different works of art will often provide fine moyives for pictures. And here you have also included a very good pattern from the paving stones and the inclusion of a girl in a red jacket is not bad either.

It's nice to see modern art in such a beautiful setting. I like many things about this scene: the red color of the sculpture and on the girl's jacket, the interesting patterns of stones on the ground, and the water in the background. The girl was captured in just the right spot.
