Cathedral Spire Plus

Cathedral Spire Plus

Birgit Freybe Bateman

When visiting my son and his family, I was walking with them around town and heard the jet first. Since I always have my camera with me, I immediately took several shots as it was aligning with the spire. This image is reminiscent of 9/11 and unnerves us, the viewer, because of this. The juxtaposition of the big jet and the cathedral spire raises all kinds of questions for us. The spire is a symbol of the spiritual, but the jet represents the material world and all that it implies.
