a quirky word for Q Day

There at the very top it is: the quoin, or more familiarly the keystone, allowing this couple to walk by with complete confidence that nothing will fall down on them.  He is truly unconcerned, but she is gazing at the top of the arch just to be sure.
This quoin is part of the Grand Rapids Arch by British sculptor Andy Goldsworthy at the Meijer Gardens and Sculpture Park.

  2. Like the color of the arch and the shape. Your banner pic is the greatest!

  3. I'd probably be doing the same thing!! Fun post for the Q Day! Hope your week is going well so far! Enjoy!


  4. Ah yes, the keystone is key! I like your choice for the "Q" day. I think this must have been a difficult one!

  5. you are lucky to have a Goldsworthy!

  6. Love the arch and colour, sandstone?, we have his sheep folds here.

  7. Arches are a bit like ladders to me - fine to observe but not too close.
