Maine Shield

Scroll and Shield from USS Maine

While driving through Bangor Maine we stopped at Davenport Park to see the Battleship Maine Monument.  The monument displays the ship’s scroll and shield recovered from the harbor of Havana Cuba.  These are mounted on blocks of grants that represent the prow of a ship.  Photographed from head on, the shield and scroll appear to be a mirror image.

For the image above, I changed one half of the image to black and white.  This accentuates the mirrored effect, seems to add depth to the image, and makes it difficult to determine if the center of the image is jutting towards or sinking away from the viewer.

Battleship Maine Monument: N44 47 50.59 W68 46 25.81
