Frozen Assets

By Jasper87  
Couple of daft uns.

v1... "why didn't the sculptor give us clothes!" .......... (Young Lovers by George Ehrlich, erected in the centre of Festival Gardens in the shadow of St. Paul's Cathedral, represents peace and love amongst the madness of the city life that surrounds them).

v2... our local park keepers as the snow began. They stopped, waiting for me to take a picture across the park little realising that they made the better image!!

It's amazing how a sculpture of lovers becomes something completely different with snow upon it. They look as if they are huddling together in order to keep warm. Aaaaw, someone throw them a blanket.
I have to agree with most others, V2 is excellent, two jolly park keepers with a sense of humour, and their brightly coloured jackets lift the image tremendously.
