Quite a noble statue of Senor Benso!

Good idea to get out the tripod and shoot it at night. Much more dramatic this way.

Jack said...

It is a good statue. His face has a very realistic expression.

Why do you say you're not very good at night photography?!

I like his stance. It's stately but not too formal.

Nice sculpture. He looks more relaxed and stylish than most of the statues I have seen.
