Monochrome Weekend


Photographed after one of our snow storms this winter, this artwork of pioneers leaving Omaha to cross the plains in covered wagons is a small part of a large public art installation spanning several blocks of the downtown business district. This portion, called Pioneer Courage relates to another collection of large bronze sculptures a few blocks away called Spirit of Nebraska's Wilderness. Click here for a full description and gallery of the extensive project. It is my plan to feature a number of images from the complete collection in future posts.

View all the monochrome contributions this weekend at Monochrome Weekend.

I really like the way you framed this image. It seems almost real. Excellent B&W contrast and tonality.

it's a great photo! And it amazes me when I think of the hardships those people had to endure. Here, water freezes in the pipes and I cry about what primitive conditions we live in. LOL!

Fine, evocative image - particularly in the snow.

A beautiful, evocative sculpture, made even more compelling by the snow. Lovely picture.
