Very grand

Very extraordinary sculpture of the bearers, even the buttons on their clothes are clear and distinct. Reminds me of a story and an image of a friend who, as an adolescent, lost his balance on a heavy church ornament during a procession and who dipped, swayed and balanced with the object as he tried to recover his grip and stance...back and forth!!

Oh well done Jack, what a clever find! Great shot for the theme. and btw I'm with you on the only going in to the knees, definitely in the sea, there's way too many horrible things in there and for some reason THIS summer there have been so many shark sightings off the beaches. I think I'll just stick to the pool! Hope you have a fab weekend jack.

I did a refletion like that once but I don't think it was as good as yours is! Very regal page.

To begin with, I could not find your reflection! Little did I know how absolutely excellent it is! Very nicely caught.

Fun to see the front and back on the same picture. I enlarged this and it's really worth doing to see the exquisite detail in the statue.
