Loving Memories

Posted by
Ian Bramham (Manchester, United Kingdom) on 13 July 2007 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This photo is typical of the loving reactions that can be seen to the statue and memory of the UK's most loved comedian - Eric Morecambe. The statue is only a few metres from Morecambe Bay and I hope that you can see some of the seaside quality to the light in this shot.

@Rags: Thanks Rags,
If it made you smile then that's a perfect 10/10 result as far as i'm concerned! I certainly felt the same happiness when I was taking the photo.

@bronzebilly u.k.: Thanks Billy - I'm glad you liked it! - I thought the b&w helped to unify the lady with the bronze colour of Eric's statue.

Gilles Daigneault from Granby, Québec, Canada

:-)
don,t know the comedian
but this is certainly the best statue picture i've seen!

@Gilles Daigneault: Thanks Gilles! - I've got another one of this statue that came out just as well but which I left in colour because I liked the seaside light. Maybe I'll post that one as well soon.

PS - he was a great comedian and a lovely gentle man. The reaction you can see on the photo is genuine - I could have taken dozens of similar photos to this with different people next to the statue.

Lorraine from Canada
