    Dave Barker was a member of Talk Photography for nearly 10 years, and was a prominent member for most of those.
    A very warm, friendly and enthusiastic member, he spent the largest portion of his time on TP welcoming and helping others.

    Ok, the new old film challenge theme is statues.

    I know we have had monuments before but this time I'm looking for proper statues of people, the more unusual the better.

    Rules, as usual:
    ◦ Must be a photograph taken by you
    ◦ Must be on film
    ◦ Must have been taken (and devved and scanned) prior to the start date
    ◦ Please tell us about the camera and film etc, and a small description of the photo.

    Closing date is 11th April at midnight, and I'll get a poll up for a few days after that.

    Entries only in here please.

    [​IMG]Jaume Plensa at Yorkshire Sculpture Park by The Big Yin, on Flickr

    "The Heart Of Trees" 2007

    "The Heart of Trees" consists of several seated self-portraits of the artist, cast in bronze, with his arms and legs wrapped around living trees. The artist's hope is that the trunks of the trees will eventually grow into the figures so each truly exists as one.

    For Plensa, the body becomes a vessel for information, a surface on which to record words. The figures are inscribed with names of composers, such as Edward Elgar, Béla Bartók, and George Gershwin. By naming particular composers, the viewer's own memories of hearing songs are brought into the experience of the work, providing an interactive dimension to the sculptures, which are placed in a new context each time they are displayed.

    Shot with my Bronica ETRSi on Kodak E100VS film, developed in Tetenal E6 Chemistry, and scanned on a Canoscan 8800F with Silverfast SE software.

    This was taken in October 2014, about 6 months after I bought my first film camera. Nice to be able to enter a photo that's more than a couple months old for a change :D

    Mamiya C220 with 80mm f/2.8. PanF developed in Ilfosol 3. 8 seconds at f/8.

    Known as "The Golden Boys" because of the colour, or (apparently) "The carpet salesmen" (!), this statue in the centre of Birmingham shows Matthew Boulton, James Watt and William Murdoch examining a plan of a steam engine.

    sorry for the delay in responding guys... been dipping in here and there on the mobile, but only to do "mod work" as needed - haven't had chance to post a proper reply in here.

    Well - what can I say... after all the times I've entered competitions on here, either in F&C or the POTY, this is only the second time I've hit the top spot (and, strangely enough, I shared first place the other time as well... maybe 2 half-first places make a whole one, who knows!) - but this one means more to me than the other did (mainly because some cock started complaining that I'd broken some rule or other, that wasn't even a rule that year... but I digress.) because it's from you guys.

    Thing Is, I don't think I've taken a photograph (other than a few record shots on the phone, and some cycling sports shots on the digital) in years, last roll of film was in the Bronica back in november 2015, and before that a test roll with the Holga back in april 2015. But I keep coming back here, and still consider F&C to be "my" bit of the forum. And it's challenges like this one that keep me coming back here...

    Anyway...

    Less blathering on - I've got an idea for another subject seeing as Nick @RaglanSurf has asked me to go for it... I'll give it a final coat of thinking about while I finish my morning Espresso, then get something posted...
