From my 'Chiaroscuro' collection.
In my 'Architecture and Scenic' collection.

From this angle, the likeness of Sir Winston appears to keep a close watch over the Houses of Parliament in London.

In the Architecture, Chiaroscuro Style photo essay.

Also in the story Chiaroscuro.

    Here's my 1st prop!! Great. There is a statue of Winston at Columbia University, in Missouri. It is very similar to this one. Columbia is where he gave the "Iron Curtain" speech and coined the phrase. A+++

    Thanks Catz. Actually, I don't do adjustments in Photoshop. Just did a little extra dodging in the darkroom to lighten the sky a bit more. That's it!
