War Memorial.

Next to those horrible LEGO MEN(remember?) is the war memorial for the 1st and 2nd WW's. It seems strange to me to put something so trivial(the lego men) next to something so dignified and important.
CLOSE UP with more detail.

Hi Chris, are you sure about the size of the image? I have 17" display and I still can't see this interesting statue without scrolling. (something going on with the blog design?)

Got morning laugh with the lego men. Amasingly terrible. I'm sorry you have to live with them.

How wonderful Chris! Great shot and great new-look for the site.

Question: Is this the statue that opens every episode of The League of Gentlemen?

Very interesting image! The perspective of it is well exposed too.
Looks like the new design is a hit with your fellow bloggers Chris!

Deji77,I made a huge mistake reducing it in 'edit' by dragging the handles from side and top instead of from a corner so I got the dimensions wrong. Same as the previous shot.I wont be making that mistake again!

Edwin: No, it´s not the same statue in the opening of league of gentlemen. That series was shot in a small town =)

Nice shots Chris, I need to change my page a bit, especially regarding the sizes of the photos, would like to have bigger ones.

And at the same time I want a new camera, because I have realized that my usually adequate camera is shite compared to what I want to take now =D
