WPC: Eye Spy

“This week, take “eye” as your inspiration. This is a great opportunity to photograph people or pets, but remember — eye has lots of other potential meanings, too.”
—WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge

It felt like this sculpture was watching me take photos of it last Summer. If/when aliens attack—or the Singularity occurs—I don’t want to be the subject of idle curiosity for some mechanical being.


I used the John S lens/Robusta film/Triple Crown flash combination in the Hipstamatic app to take this picture.

    Looks like something my kids would have put together out of stuff they weren’t supposed to touch!

      Hello, Bill. That childhood experience may well be the inspiration for this piece. The sculptor did a hell of a job with this massive work of art. It is about twenty feet tall including the base.

    He’s definitely watching you, Allan. It reminded me of a soldier as well as an alien, perhaps WWI with a gas mask.

      Hi, Janet. This week you are not alone with the thought of this sculpture being that of a soldier.

    Where have you taken this picture? Where is the sculpture displayed, in what context? sorry for being so curious. 🙂

      It is in the parking lot of a steel scrapyard in Niles, Ohio.
      Here is another look at it: http://wp.me/p24idL-3lw

        Oh I see. It the sculpture of a steelworker… To me it looked like a soldier, a soldier of World War I. I don’t know why, probably because I moved to a place where are a lot of leftovers from that time (bunkers and ditches).

        Now that you mention it, I can see how the hat and goggles give a bit of military flair to the subject.
