"Academy Spires"

by Rosemary Schewering

"The Aiken Audobon Society was planning a trip to the Air Force Academy, so I took my camera. As part of the tour, we went to where they train the falcons. We were there at 10 o'clock, and I took pictures, but that didn't count (photo contest rules required that the shots be taken between noon on July 24 and noon on July 25). So I made an appointment to come back. The woman there, a captain, was very nice. She took the falcon out for me, and I took pictures. I was thinking of taking some pictures inside the chapel, but when I got there, there was a wedding, so I took pictures outside. I just like that particular angle on the chapel. It's kind of the American Gothic cathedral. It's the American version of the European cathedral spires; in places like France, those spires are the first thing you see when you come into a town."
