Q: Why does JPGMAG drag the competitions on so much.

A: Do you know?

Photo license: © All rights reserved

Captured these surly looking guys in Piazza Salimbeni, one of my favorite squares in the Tuscan city of Siena. If you look in the upper corner of my previous pic you can see some of the carved heads that run along the top of the one building. Wish I could say who these fellows represent, but as of yet don't know.

    Whoever they represent they sure donʻt look happy. Nice picture, love the warm tones.

    Yes this is a find Deborah, I like the contrast of the warm colours against the rather angry expressions on the three men's faces.

    They look so life like...Apparently they were well known individuals in their life that they are now immortalized after death as carved heads on a building.

    a really cool shot, Deb! At first glance, they looked like a triple Jack-in-the-box! I still marvel at their determination and craftsmanship with NO modern technology.

    They appear to be instruments of intimidation...at least they would be for me. Excellent capture.
