St Volodymyr

Bronze statue of St Volodymyr, Ruler of Ukraine, 980-1015. It was put up in 1988 along Holland Park in London to celebrate his being the main man in the establishment of Christianity in Ukraine.

Very good picture I like the contrasts of light and shadow. And you are right I heard the same about Spain. I hope it wont end to disastrous for Switzerland they don't deserve it. Well, we will know more after Wednesday.

Great angle and lighting on this - doesn't look like a statue more like some kind of creepy mask ...

Thanks for the offer of the Holland Park elephant pic! Happy to take a look, not sure if you post pics anywhere else I could see it? I wouldn't use it though - wouldn't feel like it counted unless I'd taken it! (I'm hoping to catch any I've missed when they gather them all up together in Chelsea at the end of the month ... oh dear is getting a touch obsessive ... )

Agreed, he looks quite evil and sinister, as if he should be a villain in a cartoon. Well shot though :P
