Foggy Morning~Keeper of the Plains
One of Wichita’s notable sites is native American sculptor Blackbear Bosin’s 1974 “The Keeper of the Plains”, which sits at the confluence of the Big and Little Arkansas rivers in downtown Wichita. A few years ago this area had a major facelift, the statue was elevated on a much higher rock base, and two rather spectacular (by Wichita standards anyway) suspension bridges for pedestrians were erected. The statue area is now easily accessible from either side of the rivers. I like photographing the Keeper, but had never gotten the chance to shoot it in the fog.
