A few good men (I)

Statues, a mundane topic, I guess its an unavoidable one. They represent the vital personnel behind the making of the town to where it is now. Its an interesting task to photograph them in different light of the day...first, I introduce..
Horváth Mihály Oct 20,1809 (szentes) - Aug 19, 1978* (karlsbad)
he was a bishop, historian and politician..
and the founder of nationally known local theatre & language school .
In another angle, the statue looks like Pope John Paul II, don't you think?
*oops! Correction : 1878

You have caught really fine colours of sky and it makes with the statue very impressive photo. I like the whole.
Greetings from Finland!

The color of the sky and the clouds that strike me. And yes it looks like John Paul II.

Yep, from the one angle, he does look like my favorite Polish Pope!

The main shot is fabulous! I'm glad you kept that much sky, it gives the statue room to breathe. You do a great job at framing pictures, leaving space where needed. I get a little too ruthless in cropping, I have to learn from you!

Clever title and beautiful sky. Ok, maybe I don't understand, he was 169 years old when he died?

Kris said...

felicia : om gosh! hahaha..i didnt check !!!! i googled and got this ..i should check again :o

jugger : sometime i do get carried away in cropping. I'm learning myself. Only recently I prefer wider angle photos :)

Ame said...

I agree...beautiful sky Kris...and too funny about his age! Wonder if I'll live 169 years? LOL! =P

Kris said...

i think the year should be 1878 which makes it at the age of 69 :)
