He Statue

He Statue

I did definitely take this photograph but I can not take credit for the original craftsmanship or integral beauty and perfection of this marble statue. I found it in the Musée d’Orsay which is found in Paris, France. 

It is exquisite in its detail but I wanted to add some effects to it and so I did. It is so well put together that it looks as if a real male in the nude is sitting there. It is called “Despair” or “Le Désespoir” and was created in 1869 by Jean-Joseph Perraud. Someone could look at this and think this is a picture for the year of 2020 but I do not see “Despair,” but see a man reposing and reflecting upon life that this year has offered us and now hoping for a better future that 2021 and onwards will bring forward for humankind. 

According to Wikipedia, “The Musée d’Orsay is a museum in Paris, France, on the Left Bank of the Seine. It is housed in the former Gare d’Orsay, a Beaux-Arts railway station built between 1898 and 1900. The museum holds mainly French art dating from 1848 to 1914, including paintings, sculptures, furniture, and photography.”

Vimy Ridge 12

Vimy Ridge is a famous place and monument in France. It is dedicated to Canadians as they were able to take ground that was kept by the Germans in World War I. It was thought to be impenetrable and unbeatable and yet the Canadians did it. It was part of the Battle of Arras in the Pas-de-Calais Region of France. 

This monument is 30 meters high and was designed by Walter Seymour Allward. It was unveiled in 1936 by King Edward the VIII. It was restored in 2007. Did you know that when you are on those grounds, you are back in Canada? I love this series of photos that I took because to me, it means a great deal and I honour those soldiers who fought and lost their lives for our freedoms. 

This image is part of a series dedicated to Vimy Ridge. There are 13 in total. This is number 12 I like the variety of clouds from straight to fluffy.

I really like the photograph and added a stained glass effect to it. It is not an ordinary flower but a special one found at Hotel Beatus in Cambrai, France where I found it outside the rooms in the adjoining patios. Philippe Gorczynski found and made a museum around a World War I British tank, Deborah, the Iron Lady, near Flesquieres.

Pompe à Eau

Mikawoz Pompe à Eau

Pompe à Eau

While travelling in France, we stayed with friends in the French countryside just outside of Paris. It was a beautiful cottage home. I enjoyed wandering the grounds exploring the gardens and photographing this water pomp or Pompe à Eau.

I have put a sepia colour to indicate that it is from an older time and generation.
