BELINDA GROVER PHOTOGRAPHY

STOPS ALONG THE WAY

LOOK UP, WAY UP (TWO PHOTOGRAPHS)

14 Comments

This giant inflatable jellyfish is suspended inside a glass lantern in the Canadian Museum of Nature in Ottawa, a spectacular looking building in the Gothic Revival style. The museum completed in 1912 has undergone several renovations, the latest between 2004-2010.
The contrasting architectural styles and this extraordinary creature made for an interesting afternoon and the black and white version adds a bit more drama to the photograph.

  6. The B&W does give the creature more presence. It is a very interesting building design, love the stone and little windows. It must have been a bit of a shock to see that glass enclosure when they first added it.
