One Word Photo Challenge: Bronze

This weeks photo for Jennifer’s One Word Photo Challenge: Bronze

daniel oconnell Statue of ‘Liberator’ Daniel O’Connell in the grounds of St Patrick’s Cathedral, Melbourne, Australia.

Daniel O’Connell was an Irish political leader in the first half of the 19th century. He campaigned for Catholic Emancipation and our local Irish population appreciated his actions.

This statue, cast in Belgium,was originally erected in front of the cathedral in 1891, but was later moved to make way for the statue of an Archbishop.  (Taken with my FujiFilm Finepix A607 in 2012.)

I started blogging in an effort to keep the old brain cells alive. I'm writing a fantasy series, I take more MOOCs than I can handle, and am trying to get my Nikon D3000 off auto. I live in Victoria, Australia, with my husband and our dog, Vika.

    1. I am pleased to say it was my intention to catch the light that way. I love the way it picks up the folds of his cloak and his features. The cathedral looming behind is more accidental, but very effective. Thanks, Sue.
