These photographs were taken on Monday, October 3, 2016 at
The location was in Downtown Washington DC at a location that
has had some very serious money spent on redevelopment.
The "Take It!" came from my being able to spend more fresh
time in doing my schedule of locations to visit on Monday's after having had the day before for other endeavors.
These Barriers have always been eye candy for me as they are
constructed from Stainless Steel and have a look of complete permanence about them. They were built to last.
The thing that threw the lot of them into the candacy for
being sculptures was the key hole at the base of each of them. What fun it must have been for the designer to call for that shape to be a part of the specifications. The craft persons that took
on the actual making of the items may have looked upon the task of making this part of them quite differently, lol. No matter, the frame of minds involved, I think they are minor masterpieces
that I believe will stand the test of time for many years. As they age I hope they gather the occasional admirer such as myself, and the constant appreciation of those who are actually
called upon to make use of them. A quality encounter is in store for everyone.
The After Take: Thanks for indulging me in this little gesture
of attribution for work well done.
Monday's continue to be a very special day for me to revel in
having some fresh time to be able to initially observe and many times, go back to, and look more closely at something seen on an earlier occasion. If I do not make a photo catch on this day, I
almost certainly will on Tuesday when I have a reduced schedule and more time for downtown.
look forward to the continuance of the sharing of all of these things, be they big or small, via the magic of photography and this great means of passing it along.
Wishing you the very best,
PS: Some day, I hope to be lucky enough to happen upon this
site when the barriers are being temporarily taken up, so that I can have a look at the key that unlocks this stately piece of functionality. You can be assured I will do everything I can to get
a photo of this very important but separated part of the sculpture.
