Here are a couple of photos from Albuquerque

This is a bronze statue in the Albuquerque International Sunport. I have been impressed by it for years and realized today that I was right there with a camera in my briefcase.

The artist is Lincoln Fox and the work is titled "Dream of Flight."

I am sorry these photos do not balance exposure to show detail better.

My friend Kathy sent this in e-mail:

Loved your photos of the statue in our airport...I've admired that for some time. The spirituality of it, the hope and the promise...very nice...

To this I add that on every visit to ABQ I found this statue striking. It is amazing to see such a looming figure juts out on one leg that seems incapable of supporting the whole sculpture. The native figure and the eagle are moving. I am glad I grabbed a pic when the idea occurred to me.

Addendum: Tunkasila Wanbli (Grandfather Eagle) seems to bless the airport, at least in my imaginations.

A reminder of the many, many, many visits I made to ABQ, a city that has a piece of my heart there.
