Point on Eagle

I have been working quite earnestly of late with doors, lines and CH projects. However, there are times when a shot is just begging to be taken, just for the heck of it. This is one of those shots — pure whimsy. Every time I pass this piece of public artwork it puts a smile on my face, and given that 175 Eagle is beside Customs House, I have been passing often. I hope that this captures some of the joy the original gives me. (OM4, zuiko 135mm f3.5, f4, FP4 @ 125)

I like the Hands statue too - one of those memorable Brisbane things. I've walked past a few times wondering how to line up a shot, and your straight on, documentary image is just right. It is great that you got both hands in the picture and the building number. The indirect lighting has been perfectly caught as it plays over the metal. By the way, have you ever wondered how big the giant buried under the pavement must be? :-)
