Lion

07 Apr

As darkness descends…

Three photos of ODU at nighttime.

The lion (the Monarch, Big Blue). Thanks to another piece of artwork, he almost looks like a rhino:

I can’t explain why the staircase on our parking deck spoke to me. Maybe it was the repeating form and shape.

Sure, it’s not “art”, but to me, it’s an interesting photo. 🙂

Silver Blue, who is beyond weary tonight. Over and… out.

You can’t hide your Lion Eyes….

By Silver Blue

From Kenton, Ohio, 1996:

See the top of the building? There’s a lion hiding there.

In 2006, a decade later….movin’ on up…

movin’ on up….

…then coming into focus…

I don’t know what this building used to be, or why the lion head adorns it.

I don’t even know when it was cleaned and painted.

I do know it’s the pollution, however, that causes the discolouration…

It’s been 4 years since I’ve been back to Kenton, and I wonder if the building is still standing, if the lion is still there, gazing at the Court House, keeping watch over the city.

Silver Blue, who wonders what awaits beyond the next corner I turn.
