Looking up…

DSC_0501

The proud horse in the photo is part of the equestrian statue depicting Charles I in Trafalgar Square, London. I love the contrast between the horse’s smooth, solid bronze and the faded white clouds in the bright blue sky. Tourists and locals alike spend a lot of time looking up at statues, admiring and photographing them, so I wanted to find an unusual angle. The horse is accentuated so that the viewer does not know immediately at what they are looking and must imagine the rest of the scene.
