““Invention is the most important product of man’s creative brain. The ultimate purpose is the complete mastery of mind over the material world, the harnessing of human nature to human needs.”
― Nikola Tesla, My Inventions
I haven’t been anywhere except for work for a long time. I’m sure you all know how frustrating that is.
Last weekend I went on a photowalk (with masks and proper social distancing) with some folks to AT&T Plaza in downtown Dallas. We used to do that all the time, it was an attempt to return to normal… as much as possible. I did enjoy myself.
Now I am going to try and kick it up a notch – go on a road trip. A big gulf coast triangle of driving – Dallas-Houston-New Orleans-Dallas. I’m not sure how much digital access I’ll have, so I’m going to pre-post some blog entries with photos I took on the photowalk to publish while I’m gone.
See y’all on the back side.
I’ve written about this sculpture before – Golden Boy.
It was originally on top of a skyscraper in New York.
Then, during the turbulent history of corporate America – it ended up inside AT&T Headquarters in Dallas, Texas. It was hard to get a good look at it.
But now, that the company has upgraded the plaza in front of the building, Golden Boy is now outside, in all his glory.
I thought I recognized that Golden Boy. Thanks for the context — now I remember.
