The Barbarian,

You did some great composition/framing/cropping here. The convexes creating a concave and some straight lines as well. Excellent soothing colours

Marriage point between classic and joyride

I'm almost dazzled, Barbarian! Looks like an award winning restoration

A few further shots wouldn't hurt ; )

Exellently framed images, especially number two of the last batch, the overview. The text is great. What if the content could be realized, at least as a goal of striving, endeavour

Wow! Ask and you shall recieve: )

Looks likeyour first picture wasan overture!

Inspired by the'further'amazing images, I could not help but do a brief research:

http://publications.iowa.gov/archive...ofile/8-3.html

Above the grand stairway, facing the large "Westward," are quotations. On the south side is one by Patrick Henry: "No free government or the blessings of Liberty can be preserved to any people but a firm adherence to Justice, Moderation, Temperance, Frugality, and Virtue and by a frequent recurrence to fundamental principles."
On the north side is one by G.W. Curtis: "Courageous confidence in the intelligence of the community is the sure sign of leadership and success."
Underneath it is one by Solon: "The ideal state - that in which an injury done to the least of its citizens is an injury done to all."

Patrick Henry was the firebrand of the American Revolution.

What is it that gentlemen wish? What would they have? Is life so dear, or peace so sweet, as to be purchased at the price of chains and slavery? Forbid it, Almighty God! I know not what course others may take; but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!

Fits nicely with the motto of Iowa:

"Our liberties we prize, and our rights we will maintain."
