Ludwig’s Monday Window Challenge: December 6, 2021

This is my humble submission to the Monday Window Challenge. In a past submission, I posted interiors of this structure. It is the Michael E. Busch Library- the Annapolis branch library of Anne Arundel County, Maryland.

This amazing frieze can be found inside the Circuit Courthouse in Annapolis, Maryland. This was erected as a memorial to honor those lawyers who fought and died in the “Great War.” To me, this depiction brings to mind the famous painting by Jacques-Louis David, Oath of the Horatii. A pre-Revolution work of art, the theme is loyalty to the state, without regard to clan or clergy. There is a Latin inscription at the bottom, but it is too faded for me to read. Any thoughts? A translation would be greatly appreciated.

Okay, then. It seems as if I may be getting back on track. Here is my entry for the Photographing Public Art Challenge. For a change, I’m actually posting this in a timely fashion. I’ve been meaning to photograph this mural for quite some time now. It’s not far from my home. On this particular day, the sun wasn’t in the best position, so I told myself that I would go back later that day to do more. Well, as so often happens when one procrastinates, I didn’t get the job done. So this will have to do for now.

From a distance. Even with this panoramic view, the photo does not encompass the entire work.

From the photo on the left, you can see the glare of the sun that I was contending with. As Arnold Schwarzenegger said in the first Terminator movie, “I’ll be back.”

Details of Saint Mary’s Catholic Church in Annapolis, Maryland. This is my meagre contribution to the Monday Window Challenge. Happy All Saints Day!
