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
