2013-10-05-DSC00484-cropped-mediumI had tried photographing this sculpture on at least three other occasions but, whether shooting at night or during the day, I kept getting an unacceptable amount of glare from the surface of the sculpture, which is polished and shiny.  The color of the stone is really quite beautiful;  I didn’t want to settle for a shot that had a lot of glare in it.  I finally employed some lighting techniques which made it possible to get this shot with minimal glare.



Sculptor Kendra Fleischman created this work, titled Truth.  It was donated in 2005 by The Fountain Hills Civic Association and Jackie & Jerry Miles.



Embrace was created by sculptor David Hiles.  It was donated by The Fountain Hills Civic Association, The Sunridge Foundation, and many others – see photo of plaque below for complete list.  (Note: The plaque is in poor condition; I had to do a significant amount of touch-up to make it look presentable.)

2013-09-22-DSC09393-mediumI had considered cloning the flags away, but Marie told me the sculpture has more impact, especially considering its title, with flags and other evidence of modern civilization in the photo.

A close-up, looking through a part of one of the windows.  This photo was taken a few minutes after the first photo.  The sky had turned a nice rosy pink.
