PhotoHunt: Vertical


This week's theme is "Vertical."

Vertical poles holding up an old water tower~


A sculpture at the North Carolina Museum of Art in Raleigh. It's called "Crossroads" and the artist is Martha Jackson-Jarvis. From the museum brochure:

A tall sentinel of glass, carnelian, and shattered brick marking the juncture of two trails.


Same sculpture, different day. The boys in both photos are my nephews who love to hike the sculpture trails at this museum.


You can find more Photo Hunters and join the hunt here.

Thanks for visiting and have a great weekend.

Great shots for the theme. I love the crossroads sculpture. I almost used it for the theme myself, but didn't because I've posted it before. I glad I didn't because I like your photographs of it better than ones I've taken. Happy weekend.

Wow! That structure can really balance off vertically for so long? The base looked so weak!


wow, that looks like one of those desert plants. how wonderful.

Both are really good for the theme. That top one is really imposing.


What a strange but oddly compelling sculpture! That first pic makes me dizzy just looking at it lol :) Happy photo hunting!

I know I'm supposed to be looking at the vertical (very well captured, by the way) but I'm enamored by your nephews. They are so cute!


Perfect photos for the theme. The second one was very interesting.

Wow i like museums...I bet you they have fun..happy hunting.

love your vertical shots. the crossroads sculpture is truly one of a kind.


Interesting choices of subject matter for this theme. Are you allowed to touch the sculpture? Looks like it has an interesting texture!

The old water tower looks scary to me. I can't help imagining the vertical poles breaking and the water container comes crashing down. :P

The water tower is scary! (I am terrified of heights!). The sculpture looks cool... and not unlike the first of my photos...

Perfect choice of photos for this week! The first one crossroads is very interesting, and I am so curious about the 2nd one. Is it a living plant?
Happy weekend.!

The sculpture looks like a scientific feat! Love your take on this theme. Have a great weekend.


Wow, how interesting is that sculpture of glass and other things!


wow.. exemplary!

Love the shots of the sculpture. Your nephews are so lucky to be exposed to such interetsing art at an early age.

Hi Annie, great photos and take on this week's theme. The sculpture is really creative and a great way to mark the juncture of the two trails. It's so wonderful that your nephews enjoys hiking to see this cool sculpture.

Thanks so much for sharing. Have a great weekend.

Great choices. The crossroads piece is interesting. It almost looks like a cattail reed.

That is really interesting. I've never seen anything like it. It looks like it ought to tip over any second. I like your “angle” on the vertical theme.

Great photos, Annie! Love the sculpture but I feel like it's going to topple over.

Very interesting looking sculpture, Annie. Your nephews are adorable.

Wow, the first photo really captures how tall the water tower is. Great shot! Love the other two photos also. Cool choices for the theme.
