"Touchdown" Jesus

Monroe, Ohio

"Touchdown Jesus" is the endearing name many locals have given to this enormous (62 ft. high) sculpture of Jesus.

Many people around think it's tacky, others think it could be inspiring. It faces Interstate 75 and is very visable both day and night. I will go back another time to catch some daytime shots. The building you see behind it is a 3000 member church - a regular size building - so that should give you some idea of the scale.

I had the added "bonus" of a cool orange moon that rose just over Jesus' shoulder as I was taking shots. The extras:
