An archway with a view of the gardens at the Cuneo Mansion in Vernon Hills, Illinois.
It doesn’t have to be as enormous as the Gateway Arch in St. Louis to find its way into my photo files. Arches come in all different sizes and are built for many different purposes, so here, in response to Sue Llewellyn’s Word A Week Photograph Challenge on A Word In Your Ear at http://suellewellyn2011.wordpress.com/2014/08/19/a-word-a-week-photograph-challenge-arch/ here are a few arches that have caught my eye whilst out and about with the camera.
An arched doorway to the Portiuncula chapel on the Peabody Estate in Mayslake.
Lazarus And The Rich Man, an arched sculpture created by Aaron Benson, in Skokie Northshore Sculpture Park.
The arched entryway to the old City Hall in Columbus, Indiana, which at that time had been converted to an hotel and which now, I believe, stands empty.
An arched gateway, decorated with glasswork created by Dale Chihuly, at the Missouri Botanical Garden in St. Louis.
The arched entryway to the old Chicago Stock Exchange building on display outside the Chicago Art Institute.
