snarling dogs

snarling dogs

..a wider view of this and this..

This sculpture is one of several “interactive” monuments in Kelly Ingram Park, north of the Baptist church where a KKK bomb killed four young African-American girls in 1963. Artist James Drake’s 1991 work depicts snarling police dogs made of scrap iron leaping inward from two walls on either side of the park’s walkway. Visitors can stand between and try to imagine the terror when civil rights marchers were assaulted with the canines and water cannons — which, by the way, are also in the park, and can be pivoted to point toward a sculpture of two cowering protesters.

..compared to the “instant gratification” of digital, i kind of like the “waiting period” that goes along with shooting this medium, but it can get pricey.. it got me thinking about me wasting film on my gramps camera and not hearing any complaints from him after getting them from the lab..
