Kansas City, Missouri
Another shot, with a different camera, from this day:
Powerful shapes and B&W but conveyed with an almost soft glow to the image. Very handsome.

It works so well in B&W, has an air of Metropolis (the Fritz Lang movie) !

"Now only thing I did was wrong / Stayin' in the wilderness too long / Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on /
The only thing we did was right / Was the day we started to fight / Keep your eyes on the prize, hold on" (Traditional)
What an encouraging & magnificent beauty, Grant! The play of lights & shadows is brilliant, as is the frame. And your clouds rock my soul every day. All the best & safe travels, Fritsch.

Great one Grant. Contrast are so perfect. Excellent work!! Metropolis... yes...!

It seems to be an impressive memorial and by the perspective you choose it looks very dramatic and somehow futuristic. Great work.

Both of these are excellent, Grant - but I really am stirred by that dramatic low angle and depth-of-field in the original post.

I love this, great composition and processing, the reflection makes it for me...adding water to the textures of the stone. Great stuff.

What an interesting capture. Looks like you've gone to Egypt for it.

Like this one! I like the interesting "statues" but more, the squares in the pieces. Really interesting.

Wonderful value study. Image has a monumentality of a landscape, also a Metropolis feel.
