Tribute to the U.S.S. Arizona

BetterPhoto.com Photo Contest SECOND PLACE Winner
 
Tribute to the U.S.S. Arizona
Tribute to the U.S.S. Arizona
This structure within the University of Arizona Student Union Memorial Center is an architectural tribute to the memory of the sailors of the U.S.S. Arizona, who lost their lives on December 7, 1941 in the attack on Pearl Harbor. The shapes, curves, and domes are designed to evoke features of the battleship. This is an upward view in the multi-story cylindrical drum, the central element of this tribute.

I love the abstraction of the building forms here, offset by the sky.

Love how my eye went straight up the column and then around the blue tones and then continued to enjoy the rest of the lines, once again resting on the blue window. Very nice! what a neat tribute to your dad... dad's are great! (no matter what age they could be )

I've so been enjoying your shots of campus, Richard and this is no exception. Superb POV here - marvelous design with wonderful curves, lines and angles against a deep blue sky. Love the simple composition and the tribute.
