The Best of Friends



In Bond Street, just outside Asprey, the most exclsive of exclusive jewelers, is this sculpture, Created by Lawrence Holofcener it depects Churchill and Roosevelt in conversation on a park bench. Called "The Allies" you can't help but join in the action. I'm grateful here to Chris from San Francisco for agreeing to be my model.

Link of the day: Name That Tube!" - a photoshopped-photo quiz with the answer being a London Tube Station.

You are a very funny man. Thanks for the pizza joke. But, actually, the photo is great fun, and the statues are quite wonderful! Great shot!!

I like the informal poses. Do you think they actually sat on that bench? Two VIPs wouldn't be around in public, at least not these days. Great shot. The sculptoric group makes more sense with Chris in the middle as he fits perfectly and makes Churchill seem to share a secret in his ear, or be a little drunk and the hand on the leg looks so natural that it seems Roosevelt is really looking at Chris!

Chris actually looks american! Is it cos he looks like the Colonel, or is it the lens you've used?

Looks as if the place was meant to fit in Chris. Well done.
They all seem to have a good time!

Fun shot. Roosevelt depeicted sans wheelchair, and both statues look so jovial. Do you think Churchill is telling Christ a secret about FDR? Chris will never tell, I'm sure. ;^)
