In the Sayre Gyre

Last winter when we were in Raleigh, North Carolina for Brian’s ScienceOnline conference, we made a quick trip to the Museum Park at North Carolina Museum of Art.

We wanted to see the entire Museum Park but it seems like we got stuck in Thomas Sayre’s Gyre, it started raining, and we ran out of all the time … anyway, it was the piece I was dying to see for years, so here are the many ways I shot those famous rings and couple of other pieces on the way.

    These are beautiful, haunting photos. Would you be comfortable with my sharing them on the NCMA’s Pinterest page for the Museum Park? You can find the page at
