Mudlarks statue and historic ship

Posted by
Mhelene (Villiers-sur-Marne, France) on 26 April 2019 in Miscellaneous.

Cette statue sur le quai commémore les générations d'enfants pauvres venus sur le quai pour ramener quelques sous à la maison .

This statue commemorates the generations of Portsea children, boys and girls who would scramble to find the money tossed down, sometimes diving into the mud.

FUJIFILM X-T2 1/240 second F/9.0 ISO 200 55 mm

Is that Nelson's Ship Victory in the background? You have chosen your angle so well that the sculpture almost seems to be figureheads that have come to life and the light is beautiful too

@grouser: Yes it is ! The ship "Victory" on which Admiral Nelson was wounded at the Battle of Trafalgar ! Thanh you grouser !

nice job on the rigging and the statues. I would like to see more of the framing tree or none of it.

@Harry: Thank you Harry ! Yes I had removed the trunk and also the small branches and leaves at the top but comparing I found that these "nature frames" went well with the atmosphere a little Fairy tale...
