Old Reflection

I was out today to photograph some new reflections for a
series of digital art I'm working on but decided to shoot
a few shots of a sculpture I did years ago.  A small piece,
not quite three foot square.  I have it perched on a
protruding piece of ledge in our back yard.  If not for 
the ledge I'm sure it would be sinking to the center of 
the earth due to it's weight.  It consists of two interlocking
welded steel pieces best described as three dimensional
horseshoes.  Six cast aluminum wedges driven in the center
hold the two steel plates and five cast lead plates at each
end.  A piece that is held together by it's own internal tension.
Much like myself.  Call it a self portrait.
