Photo Inspiration

Two Archers

Two Archers
Photographer/Studio: Massie, Gerald R.

Sometimes you happen on a piece of art that really affects you. This amazing picture has a juxtaposition and poses that really does it for me.

Earlier in the day I was thinking about heroism. Mostly I feel it’s a human construct used to describe people’s actions. But all to often people are put on pedestals and called “HEROES!”. That really bugs me. But for some reason I find these two women real heroins. They are Sheros of the first order.

I found this photo, that’s in the public domain, in the Missouri State Archives Flickr collection. Find more info about the photograph there.
