    Hi,

    last weekend was the official inauguration of a monument in front of our railway station.

    The sculpture is called "Possedere, le cheval cabré maitrisé par deux hommes",
    and was made by the famous artist Marcel Wolfers, who lived in our village a long time ago.

    Here's a picture of this monument, shot with the G1 and a Nikkor 24/4 adapted via the Shift Adapter for Nikkor by Fotodiox.
    Stitch of 2 pics.

    ahhh, that's a real good picture. It looks like an vintage postcard - only some mildew stains are missing. I also see more a model of a sculpture than the real monument, maybe because there are no other objects on this picture to get a scale... The shade of color is also very well choosen.
    In my archive of old views I have a lot of similar sujets. The closest may be from my collection of glass pictures by French artist Ary Bitter (please have a look here: Album photographique d'Ary Bitter ).

    I'll go back tomorrow and shoot some more, but, be forwarned, the vicinity is absolutely not beautiful : parked cars, traffic signs, ...
    Thus, I had to opt for a close-up to isolate this monument.
