The Past



The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there.

Monochrome Monday - 13th April


Another Monochrome Monday and for a change not another photo of my distant relatives ..

Not sure who this fellow is .. or is it a lady ?  Perhaps Charlie Chaplin ? 


You'll find him or her in the Municipal Park at Elche - now I'm sure I can see a moustache !!

He seems happy in his work.

Bonsoir Petrus,
Well he looks also like the famous clown from a fast food restaurant.

I prefer thinking it's Chaplin, because, here, he can get my admiration.

Carver said...

That's an interesting shot and he does remind me of Charlie Chaplin. Good subject for monochrome.

At first I thought female, but your words drew me to male. Curious.

I was even thinking the statue looked like Duke Ellington! Somehow I think of some jazz legends rather than stage/film legends like Chaplin!

It is a little hard to tell isn't it? I like the plant in the background, very interesting. Great shot.

No, the hair doesn't look right for Chaplin! Good shot though.

Just notcied your WH Davies quote. there was a programme on the rdaio about him yesterday and he read that poem. (They had an old recording of him I should say.)
