Lens-Artists Challenge #32 – Shadows

Spain has many beautiful beaches, and we had a great time walking on the beach at Santander on the northern coast.  This is one of my friends; there were a group of eight of us that traveled frequently together during our semester in Spain.

You can find more shadows at the original Lens-Artist challenge.

From Dublin, Ireland.

The very emotional nature of this Irish Famine Memorial was enhanced by the late afternoon sun, casting long shadows.  These statues were done by artist Rowan Gillespie in 1997, a haunting representation of the Great Famine, which was responsible to the deaths of nearly one million Irish people, and the emigration of about as many.

Someone had put fresh flowers in the hands of the statues, which I thought was a nice gesture as well as a nice addition to the art.
