One of the joys of seeing large sculptures in outdoor settings is being able to view the works with different backdrops, interacting as it were with those settings. That can also be one of the banes for a photographer if there are few if any good views that aren't hopelessly cluttered with extraneous stuff. That is the case with this sculpture. It was hard to find a composition in which the sculpture broke free from the trees, yet was still set against an interesting background of buildings. This, to my mind, is a kind of compromise. The view is toward the north, past the emptied reflecting pool, toward the Lurie Engineering Center.

FYI, if you're a fan on works like this by Snelson, check out my gallery of his similar but much larger and more elaborate sculpture, B-Tree II, here: https://arctangent.smugmug.com/organize/Art/Art-at-Meijer-Gardens/Featured-Sculptures-at-Meijer-Gardens/B-Tree-II-Sculpture-Snelson. It's one of my favorite works at Meijer Gardens both to see and to photograph. Eventually this one, Indexer II, might have its own gallery as well.
