This is a beautiful wall, beautiful tones, great msg, but something is missing in composition of this picture. Maybe not so fortunate angle to get this picture with better symmetry or so ... not sure, but somehow something is missing . Sorry for my honesty !

Words of truth from the time of writing. Unfortunately so many "interest" groups now seem to twist these into their own venomous attitudes. It falls, therefore, on the ones who try to retain a clear mind and clear view. The quest for peace is the highest goal.

Phil Morris from Saskatoon, Canada

Very beautiful architecture in the stone here and I love the covered wagon symbol
of building and settling the American west. The background is covered in golden
tones behind the scene which brings out the carving very nicely. You really have
photographed it very well.

A pretty good thought to live by, I'd say. A bit more of this citizen watchfulness might be just the ticket these days.
