Alas, the days quickly pass through my fingers
A day or so ago, I went to check on the Daily City Photo Blog website as I've found their promises and portals to be sluggish. They are not able at this time to keep up with people's posts. In fact, mine have yet to surface and so, I must depend upon a random visit or someone following from my initial post on their message board. But back to their website. Unfortunately, at the time I checked, the site was down and I couldn't see if my recent posts were connected to their site.
In the spirit of random hits and acts, here is a picture of The Equestrian sculpture by John Houser. Very controversial, and berated by some, it is touted as the world's largest equestrian sculpture. I don't know about that. All I know is that I love horses, and this one is exceptionally detailed and beautiful. It may be an inflated example of public art and artist ego, but no one can deny the effect the horse made upon the history of both natives and colonists alike.
Note: If you can get your hands on St. Clair's book, " The Secret Lives of Color ," go for it! It's absolutely beautiful...
