"Handstand"

A sculpture by Milton Hebald, which was installed in downtown Los Angeles in 1986. I've taken numerous photos of this over the years, this one being the most recent and the one I like the best. The form of the human body against the linear grid of windows in the background building is, to me, a wonderful contrast. What look like reflections of clouds creates a sort of "transition zone" between building and the body. And look! The sculpture forms the letter "Y." ©Carol Leigh

The background is exquisite. So is the photo.
