2017 Road Trip: From Bomb to Art

We saw this V2 Rocket Engine at the New Mexico Museum of Space History, and I couldn't resist photographing it.  Such wonderful geometry inside such a deadly object.

I couldn't resist playing with the image in Photoshop Elements either.

You might find this as an abstract print in a hotel room somewhere, or hanging in a museum.  I could have an artist's statement about the vital role of art in transforming images of death into images of beauty, hope or life.  I could make some reference to the Bible, and turning swords into ploughshares.

But I think I'd rather just leave you with this evocative image instead.
