Don't fret, it's just Charles Ford's photography blog.

Spire and Sky

Not a lot going on here, but I found it intriguing enough.  This is an HDR, the spire is actually one of several which sit on top of the Douglas Ave. bridge from my earlier “Under a Bridge” post.   I’m calling it a spire, even though that might not be the correct term.   Tower?  Appendage?  Structure?  Sculpture?   Spire sounds more poetic so that’s what I’m going with.

    Whatever you call it, it’s a beautiful piece of work. I love public art like this piece that we find in cities today. It shows that some thought has been given to beautify an area and make it available to everyone. This is a particularly nice shot, Charles. The clouds compliment the spire with shape and color. Your HDR work is superb, too.

  2. Thanks Ken. On something so outside the box as this one, I really have no clue as to whether anybody else would like it. I never really have thought much about Wichita public art, but I guess we do pretty well.

    I like the tonal qualities of the shot and how it combines and balances Nature’s spontaneous patterns with man-made abstract patterns. As to what you call this piece of public art, ………. inspiring.

    Charles- the only thing that would have made this picture better would have been a streak of lighting shooting straight down into the metal- but I am craazy like that

  5. Thanks for the comments. Yes, I’m hitting myself in the forehead right now because I should have though of the word “inspiring”. And ah yes Tom, there’s not much in the way of imagery that a good bolt of lightning can’t improve.
