A Sense Of Scale




Scale

There have been many pictures of Kiener Plaza in the nearly nine year run of this blog. It won't be around that much longer, at least in its present form. The plans for restoration of the Arch grounds extend into downtown. The plaza will be ripped up and replaced with something different. We'll see if it is an improvement.

One of the fixtures is the statue of The Runner, plowing through a fountain in the warmer months. In the winter, agile visitors can climb up the base for family snaps. My knees wouldn't make it up that high.

I'll hate to see the Plaza go. I worked downtown for over eight years, and spent a lot of lunch hours there.

Having people in the shot does reinforce the height. The scale of the statue reminds me of our national fire fighter's monument, where the statue is considerably larger than life.
