It is good to have slow news days to drive around and to get fun features. On Tuesday, I took photos of a man painting the famous sculpture by artist Mark di Suvero by the Fort Wayne Museum of Art.
Everyone in Fort Wayne knows this famous red-orange sculpture and, yes, it will remain that color. I went out to check it out because Sam Hoffman saw the cherry picker Monday, waiting, with no painter.
So, I went out and the painter was out priming the sculpture. Little did I know that a little while later, Cathie Rowand took some photos of him as well. She came back with a vertical shot, I came back with a horizontal shot. I laughed and said the competition is on for which one they will pick.
Actually, I am all for the better photo no matter what. She had a really strong photo, so we will see. It may just depend on the space in the paper. Sometimes a vertical will work better then a horizontal. It still was funny coming back with the same feature.
