Photo of the Week No. 44: “Pattern Party”

November 3, 2018

I love a good pattern. My eyes are innately drawn to them, and that’s why the complexities found in this Photo of the Week grabbed my attention. Located just steps away from the Charles H. Wright African-American Museum in Detroit, this sculpture makes quite a statement with its abstract curves and shapes, and, well, patterns. The black-and-white piece — Charles McGee’s “United We Stand” — is quite striking, as it features stripes, dots and an array of geometric shapes. And this is just one corner of it! If you’re ever in the Motor City, you’ve got to see it in person.

Photo of the Week No. 38: I Spy in the Sky

September 19, 2018

Look, up in the sky! It’s a bird. It’s a plane. It’s a ginormous gold hand? So random! This Photo of the Week was taken during a recent trip to New York. I happened to glance out of an 11th-floor window and had to do a double take. What would possess a person to put a massive hand atop a building? A radiant gold one at that. Well, at least I now know the culprit (I’m convinced there’s nothing a Google search can’t find!). This shiny hand sits on top of the Madame Tussauds celebrity wax attraction in Times Square. I have to hand it to them though (See what I did there?! LOL). It’s quite the conversation starter. I just love how this sculpture(?) is out there shining, doing it big on a New York City rooftop — an Easter Egg of sorts hiding in plain sight. What a treat this is for those who are lucky enough to catch this scene! Keep your heads to the sky, observant ones 🙂
