  1. Very lovely atmosphere in it´s dark way. In black and white they didn´t look like made out of wood at first. I was thinking stone first.

  6. Something very moody with so much shadow on the face of the main statue, and the other with the face half turned away but in the light; nice shot.

  10. I think that is a sinister figure with a very vulnerable and innocent boy so close to those big hands...

  16. You are so brave! I thought they complain if people shoot at museums :) Nice angle! Thanks for visiting my Mom's site /Nadine, Bulgaria/ - she is still learning how to use the net translator and is new to blogging - hope soon she will be able to respond herself.

  18. Amazing what a lot of lighting and an absence of color will do to a photograph. This one is just fabulous!

  22. Nice shot .. contrast is a bit dark but I suspect its due to sneaking a photo in a museum which does not encourage photography

  23. The monochrome changes the look of the wood, giving the sculptures an almost metallic look! Love the play of the shadows.
