Where would we be without Paddy the Cope. He deserves his statue.

This works really well in black and white.

In b&w this photo is more dramatic! He was the founder of the local Agricultural Society? I have to learn more about him!

Kisses from Nydia. We just arrived from Petropolis!

I am at a loss as to who the statue is, but it's very finely taken.

This statue looks so stunning in monochrome! Very regal shot!

Mojo said...

All I know about the man is what I could make out on the pedestal, but it sounds like I woulda liked him.

Nice shot!

Carver said...

I love the contrast between the white buildings and the dark statue. Works very well.

Liz said...

That is a very impressive statue for what is an ordinary-looking man. Tell us more!

B&W is perfect in that case. Now, like many other Monochrome Maniacs I need to find some informations about him.
Like that you used the opportunity to pay tribute to him.

Jonna said...

Interesting. All monuments should be taken in B&W.

This really suits a black and white shot, I didn't post today - no time!

He really does stand out well.
