Metal Bandages

The facade of the Stanford Memorial Church acts as a centerpiece and tourist destination; It’s what's around the corner that inspires me. Crowds of people snap photographs of the grand mosaic glistening in the sun; I walk through the shady garden, stumbling upon a breathtaking view. Shielding the rock, covering the stained glass, and wrapping across the steeple, I see what comforts me. Scaffolding.
