Wing’s Eye View

The Peace Fountain outside the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, New York, NY.

I was backing up my laptop as I prepare it for the coming Lion upgrade (if it can even handle Lion *fingers crossed*), and I came across this image from one of my earlier portfolios.  I love the angle of the shoot.  I think it’s a perfect representation of a “wing’s eye view”.

This is the Peace Fountain outside the Cathedral of St John the Divine in New York City.  I spent a lot of time in the area of the Cathedral during my trip to Manhattan.  There was a crepe restaurant within a block of it that I fell in love with, and since we don’t have crepe restaurants in Milwaukee I decided I need to go multiple time during my week there (I do love creeps ever so much). So, I spent a lot of time just staring up in amazement of this massive Cathedral, the fourth largest christian church in the world, smack in the middle of Manhattan, surrounded by skyscrapers.  It’s an incredible and somewhat perplexing site.  The fountain itself is also a lot to take in.  I think I could have, and honestly might have spent an hour or more just looking at all the different things going on in the sculpture, it’s a really well done narrative piece of art.
