New Series: Faces Of Statues In The Rain


After nearly a decade of this endeavor new ideas are hard to find. And with just a few exceptions, I only get to shoot on weekends. I left home on Sunday morning in a light, steady rain and not a plan in my head. As I got downtown I noticed how the raindrops affected the many bronze statues in the area. And so this series, the faces of statues in the rain.

This first one is Aristede Maillol's La Riviere in Citygarden. The link has a much broader, brighter view. This selection makes me think of the bodies of dead migrants washed up on the shores of Greece or Italy.

The rain adds an extra element, here a bit of sadness but perhaps an other in other circumstances. Very good theme.

This is going to be a series to look forward to. It must be hard when you're so busy at work Bob, you'll have to take heaps of shots at the weekend 😊

Good idea for the series Bob. This photo is excellent and I like it in b&w. You still have those creative juices flowing in your head even if it's only weekends. :)
