I'm obviously improving on getting the focus right with stationary objects anyway! It has also become evident that I should have a 'hands' set.......


This is a glimpse of the female figure, from two twenty foot tall sculptures standing either side of the elevators, on the ground floor entrance of the Time Warner Building at Columbus Circle.


The sculptor, Botero, has established a reputation for his rendering of very generously proportioned men and women, in both painting and sculpture. I was pleasantly surprised to see that two anatomically correct, but enormous nude figures depicting 'Adam & Eve' were tolerated, in what I had perhaps erroneously considered might be a conservative country, with respect to the frank portrayal of nudity in public art..


I'd also just like to say thanks to the folk from the NYC Social Group on flickr, who were so helpful in the run up to our arrival and during the stay there. In particular Lasadh in the run up to AND throughout the whole trip but also, Aaron Edwards before we arrived, and amg2000, Harry J Bizzarro, RubyMae, Simon Pride for joining us for a flickr-walk in the drizzle at Brooklyn's Greenwood Cemetery, and on our last evening. Finally, on our last day our completely chance encounter with NYCArthur who on our last morning before flying home, spotted us taking photographs, wandered over and said... "Do you know of flickr?"! :)


Velvia & B&W still to come!
