Photo Hunters: Spiral

Tough one this week! Well, let’s see what I can do… The funny thing is: the more I looked for spirals, the more I discovered. 🙂

Look at all the spirals on the gate! This is the gate to the Russian Orthodox Monastery in Jordanville, NY.

Monastery Church Gate-1

A spiral railing on a staircase, in the old Old Main building in Utica. It was once known as the Utica Lunatic Asylum. It’s very dilapidated right now, but it was once considered the finest example of modern Greek Revival architecture in the Western world.

You may need to enlarge the next one to really see the spirals. This is at the Empire State Plaza, behind the Capitol Building in Albany, New York. The chain link has a spiral effect; the red cobblestone is installed in a spiral pattern, and so it the gray sparkly concrete paving.

You can see the concrete paving even better in the next photo. That’s The Egg– a popular arena for concerts in the capitol city. The exterior concrete has a spiral effect.

Notice the spirals of wood on the wall! They are for making barrels.

Spirals on this funky art, hanging at the Hamilton College library.

Hmmm spirals in the glass, at Corning Museum of Glass.

I think I’d better stop! I’m finding spirals EVERYWHERE!

How did your Photo Hunt go today?
