The Weekly Photo Challenge calls for submissions on the theme of ‘Monument’.
That one on the top left is amusing, Sandra. I also like what you did with the bottom one. I used something similar with my rabbit earlier in the week.
I think that technique is quite effective in a photo that has some element of movement in it. Thanks for commenting Janet, have a nice weekend.
wonderful choices. and yes, it’s great what you did with the last photo, very effective. 🙂
Thanks KZ. Have a good weekend!
Well, I’m not very original, but I also love the bottom photo. I guess when everyone likes it you know you’ve taken an extra special shot!
Thank you! I love this piece of bronzework. You can’t see the detail so much with the editing technique I used, but it’s quite cleverly constructed too.
I love the last one in Singapore. I once got in to a debate over that sculpture. In a group [photographers] I belong to on FB one chap posted an image of it. This woman pounced on him, calling it racist…she went a bit mental. I love the sculpture and tried to point out to her it had nothing to do with black slavery in America…some people are sooooo strange.
That’s just plain weird. 🙂 I think there’s so much careless joy in this photograph. When you think of the dangers they were risking (passing bumboats, pollution etc) and yet they are so utterly full of life. Of course since the Clean Rivers Act (83 I think) the risk has been mitigated to some degree, and these days such behaviour wouldn’t be allowed I suspect. Singapore has always struck me as being very orderly!

I enjoyed the last photo also. It gives it a lot of movement. Also, the sculptures are pretty cool.
They’re beautiful aren’t they? Thanks for dropping by.
Oh, those French Popes … they sure knew how to look after themselves.
But then, didn’t they all, the Popes …?
And doesn’t the Curia still ?
As we cruise through France I never tire of visiting cathedrals, basilicas, etc. I’m astounded at the opulence contained therein, and at the numbers of beggars who congregate at the doors. Thanks for dropping by Margaret.
I love the photo of Palais des Papes in Avignon. Beautiful!
