architectural sculpture

Originally uploaded by Scenic Artisan
i love faded architectural sculpture. this building near 12th and g nw has beautiful tree and floral themes, but otherwise is bolted up like an urban fortress. one non-glorious utilitarian steel doorway. odd, and neglected.

Navy Memorial Relief Sculptures

I've always had an affinity for the Navy Memorial on Pennsylvania Avenue across from the Archives.

My great grand father told me stories of his adventures as a shipworker in Baltimore and then in the navy in WWI. my grandfather raised me on his stories of service a PT boat in the south pacific during WWII.

I always think of them each and every time walk by this place. I also think about the terrific sculptures depicting different aspects of navy life.
here are all the relief sculptures
