Eye in the Sky
"I become a transparent eyeball; I am nothing; I see all."
--Ralph Waldo Emerson
Not a perfect fit, but I've been wanting to post that quote for years. I finally broke down and did it.
All the eyeball photos in this glorious eyeball-rific series are from photos I originally took of an eyeball sculpture we saw in a sculpture park in St. Louis. [Yes, even the "Pop Goes the Eyeball" eyeball, which (obviously) I cropped and reduced in size.] We were driving from Rome to KC to visit my parents, and though the drive is nearly 800 miles, and we completed the trip in a single day, I insisted on stopping at the park specifically to visit the giant eyeball. One must pay hommage where hommage is due, no?
We spent a good hour or two there walking about and taking in the weird sculptures.
