Bliss Dance, Part IV
26 October 2011 Sam Rua

Bliss Dance, Part IV

Treasure Island, San Francisco

From a business trip to the Bay Area. I took my 5D
Mark II and some L lenses on this trip. This is a good reason
why: aside from resizing, this is basically right out of the camera.
I am really liking this fisheye zoom lens.

Bliss Dance is a 40 foot tall metal sculpture by
artist Marco Cochrane. More info at:

Here is a short video slide show of some of the images in this series:

Many thanks to Cedric Sims for pointing me to this
fantastic sculpture. Cedric's shots can be seen at:

Ohhhhh, quite a find and quite a shot!
It reminds me of a sculpture seen (on the web) at "Burning man 2011".
This is very cool Sam.
Love all of the images you made on that lively sculpture.
