Despite their size and prominent display, it’s easy to ignore statues. After a while they blend into the landscape, becoming silent vigils as the world swirls around them. Using a quadcopter to gain a different vantage, however, these commonplace statues become less familiar. The new view gives them a new sense of life. We may have forgotten them, but all they have is their view of us.
Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
