Memorial - detail

Detail of a mini-'Trafalgar square' where Nelson is... a Soviet soldier. The wideangle perspective somewhat diminishes the massive grandeur of this memorial to the Red Army, somewhat unexpected to be honoured in a Western democracy...

 

The golden inscription on top reads, literally: "Glory to the Red Army heroes fallen in the battles with fascist German occupiers, for the freedom of Europe."

 

But this is not meant as a political observation, just an exercise in photo processing ;)
