By The Hand of Man

Genius is one per cent inspiration and ninety-nine per cent perspiration.
Thomas Edison, 1847-1931

Man's works are inspirational. One can admire craftsmanship, seen in the soaring arches of a cathedral, or in the delicate decoration on a temple roof. Monumental works such as bridges and highways have their own excitement. When weather and time take a hand and add mellowing effects of crumbling stone or peeling paint, the result is photogenic indeed.
