Testosterone oozing all over the place.

Taken in the Vigelandsparken, Oslo.

We are now recovering after a very enjoyable visit by the Woolybills. Much talk, much eating and imbibing and many a photo taken. A good time was, I believe, had by one and all. (Apart from one of our cats who disappeared two minutes after they turned up, only to reappear 30 minutes after they left 5 days later. Intelligent?Smile

Many thanks to Bill & Moira for being such enjoyable company.

My hair looks like that.

Great tale about the Woolybills. I was admiring their new teaspoons yesterday.

Yep, I have an almost identical composition of these two but I haven't got round to processing it yet. (Been working mainly on various uses of the national flag...) This is powerful, so many of the sculptures seem to be about personal relationships - intimacy and distance...
I'd better go and count the teaspoons now.

Beautifully processed Malc. Love the tonality in this that adds to the intensity of the statues. Quite a dark and intense feel. Will be interesting to see Moira's interpretation.

Are you in recovery mode too after your hosting? Grin

Paul.

Interesting sculpture and great capture that concentrates the viewers attention on the relationship. Works very well in monochrome.

Excellent pov and mono. The two figures are about to brandish their haircuts at each other:
"I have attracted more pigeons than you!"
"Oh yeah? My pigeons have left more souvenirs of their visit!"

Two hours standing in the school gym watching examination candidates is much harder on the feet than six hours walking round Oslo. A couple of invigilators built like these two blokes would have no trouble keeping order though.

A powerful statue with great drama plus the dark sky to add even more.
Seems you all had a great time and the cat did a bunk, clever cat.

Perhaps your cat knows something you don't, Malc! Grin Glad to hear a good time was had by all, and I imagine the Woolybills would have really enjoyed this location Wink Great shot, and just made for mono Smile

Wonderful handling of light and shadow!

I can imagine the conversation:

"Did you shut the windows?"
"No, I thought YOU did."

It was a quiet dinner that night.
