The weather doesn’t affect the angel’s beauty

The 48 foot tall angels on the exterior of Bass Hall are beautiful. I was there on Saturday, a dark, dreary day, and took one photo of one of the two angels, side view. They are made of Texas limestone and considered cultural icons for Fort Worth. The concert hall itself has breathtaking acoustics, it is a true treasure for the city.
Nice angle you have on the angel! Great picture!

@maggiemae This limestone was treated with a stabilizing product of some kind, so they are not supposed to erode. Everyone was concerned when they were installed because of the porous nature of that stone. The sculptor and the construction company published articles about their durability.

@ingrid01 @moviegal1 @bkbinthecity @gijsje @ludwigsdiana @jenp @mittens @beryl @mave @carolmw @sugarmuser @sarah19 @onewing @pistache @cocobella Thank you so much for commenting and your faves. You know if I lived in Fort Worth I would be downtown photographing the angels in every type of weather, every time of day and night and every season. They are truly gorgeous sculptures.

this is a beautiful sculpture. It is really hard to imagine it is 48 feet tall! A wonderful choice of composition, Lou Ann

Oh, this is beautiful. Your point of view and the placement besides the negative space of the background is just perfect. This is especially stunning when seen on black. Definitely a Fav.

I like the clean lines and the white background setting it off so well. SO high up!

Wow, just like the old film days - one shot and a keeper!
February 19th, 2019  
I agree, just so beautiful...

@stray_shooter I was quite surprised when I saw this shot, ah the film days! Have you seen Jim Brandenburg’s “Chased by the Light: a 90 Day Journey”? He challenged himself to take only one photo a day between autumn and winter. The book is amazing.
