Part of the front aspect of the Seamen's Mission in Great Yarmouth. The statue of mother and children is in the garden.

Thanks to Anne (atworner) for adding her U.A. to Church Militant? . It is very much appreciated.

Three interesting elements here
Lovely sunshine on the statue of the mother and her children
Eye-catching triangle with the sailing boat
The watcher looks very natural on top - can almost imagine he has climbed up there for the view.
Could divide well into a natural triptych Bill SmileSmile

Beautifully captured and in this case the central position of both figures works a treat.

The shortened perspective caused by the distance appears to place the trinagle like a protective roof over the mother and children, Bill, Extra protection provided by the guardian above. Excellent comp to achieve this illusion.

From a distance
There is harmony
And it echoes through the land
And its the hope of hopes
Its the love of loves
Its the heart of every man

God is watching us
God is watching us
God is watching us
From a distance

This image remembered me of the song.

This is definitely not a Midler the road architectural image Bill and Johanna does not think so either as she's broken into song!Grin
