Fats here.

It’s Tuesday! It’s time for Frizztext’s A-Z Photo Story Challenge. Letter this week is A, and this will be the first photo story for 2014, and my actual “A” post this year. I got a little excited that I posted my “A” Story last week without even thinking that it would make more sense to do it in 2014. Hehe. My chosen word is “arch.”

arch

/ärCH/ n. a curved symmetrical structure spanning an opening and typically supporting the weight of a bridge, roof, or wall above it.

“The ancient Romans had a tradition: whenever one of their engineers constructed an arch, as the capstone was hoisted into place, the engineer assumed accountability for his work in the most profound way possible—he stood under the arch.”
— Michael Armstrong

  1. I like your Armstrong quotation:
    “The ancient Romans had a tradition: whenever one of their engineers constructed an arch, as the capstone was hoisted into place, the engineer assumed accountability for his work in the most profound way possible—he stood under the arch.”

    P.S. by frizztext:
    maybe also a good test for the statements of the bicycle champion and doping specialist Armstrong – or the Armstrong, who was on the moon (I still can’t believe it, but that Stanley Kubrick produced a fake). The only one, who mustn’t have any fear to stand under his arch of art is, for sure: Louis Armstrong!

    • I agree with your notion about Louis Armstrong! And yes, I read an article from four years ago explaining how Stanley Kubrick faked it! Crazy stuff!
