Ecstasy and the Moon



The Burning Man sculpture in the Hayes Valley, Ecstasy, was gazing at a half-moon on Thursday evening, while presiding over neighborhood dog walkers at her feet.

And now I know why it's called both a moon and a camel-toe.

Removing the sarcasm, that's a very nice shot.

Dear Matty: The statue is being shot from the back of the figure in silhouette so actually you're getting a moon and a moon rather than a camel toe. But the sliver of light in the crotch area mirroring the sliver of light in the moon was definitely part of why I took the picture.

Beautiful photo, I can just imagine the Hayes Valley hipsters lounging beneath...

Dear Grove: I'd love to come but I have tickets for an old ladies' matinee at the Symphony today. Next time.

Mike: no prob-- I'm planning on other exhibits to arise now that I finally have a studio space... hope you enjoyed the concert.
