The Madonna could use a bit of a cleaning- looks like the birds have been around her too long!

Good one, VP.

Very good shots, especially the second one!

Michelle said...

Two excellent shots. Great feeling with the colors and sky.

Great shots today. Both of them are strong photos. You must have been on a boat yourself to shot the bow straight on like this.

That ferry looks like its going to run you over and it seems so big! Love the 2nd shot...a bit of serendipity there...

Linda said...

Nice sculpture! I like the first shot too.

That second photo is brilliant, the way the man and statue are facing each other and the amount of positive and negative space. Such technique!

Love the contrasting angles in these two shots VP, the ferry looks like it's coming right at you :) and the clever placement in the second was excellent, perfectly timed!
