064. Chase.

Like Sisyphus, doomed to chase the wind - but never catch it.

Mechanical weather vane/sculpture - Kitsilano pool, Vancouver

I like it!
And apt comparison to Sisyphus

Thank you both, I will look up the makers' details.

I feel like Sisyphus sometimes ... look up from time to time,
if you can't see the sky it means you're in a really deep rut!

Thanks for the fav, Dan-Tuyet.

Terrible technique... drops her elbows, kicks from the knee. No wonder she can never catch the wind. :-D
Just kidding, this is very clever. I took a zoom shot when I visited last summer and use it as wallpaper on my home computer.

Thanks @rsp, I have to say you're right, her technique is awful.

I was always hopeful the artist would make her stroke correct,
still it's nice to look at on a sunny day at the pool (or even a wet
one, this is Vancouver after all).
