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.”
/ärCH/ n. a curved symmetrical structure spanning an opening and typically supporting the weight of a bridge, roof, or wall above it.
“I am a part of all that I have met; yet all experience is an arch wherethrough gleams that untravelled world whose margin fades for ever and for ever when I move.”
— Alfred, Lord Tennyson
“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
“Human society is like an arch, kept from falling by the mutual pressure of its parts.”
