When the overcast skies finally went away around 11 o’clock this morning it was time for me to take a break from working inside and spend a bit of it outside, at least for a couple of hours anyway. Making my way over to a favorite Eastport eatery I ordered a cup of coffee and then proceeded to relax at an outdoor table while taking in a bit of the sunshine.
As seems to be case, more often than not, I caught sight of this curious looking object whirling away in the wind on a nearby rooftop. I found myself mesmerized not only by its colorful presence there on high but also by the different components that one could clearly see set against the backdrop of the blue late morning sky.
Were those small metal bowls attached to the spokes on its odd shaped wheels or perhaps the ends of large soup ladles? Clearly it had the look of a two section pinwheel and then there was that shovel or arrow like metal protrusion glistening in the sunlight facing to the side. Ah, of course, this is a Pinwheel Weathervane!
I have seen a number of creative, and at times alternatively inspired, pieces of metal art adorning the yards and houses of Annapolis over time but today’s rooftop exhibit is one that I will surely remember for years to come.
Hopefully everyone is enjoying their afternoon and now it is time for me to get back to work,
