no surprise there. But perhaps a bit unlike most travelers, I like to figure out the backstory to the remarkable things I shoot.
For today's Challenge I'd like you to help me...
1. Figure out who/what these photographs depict. In particular, are they depicting real people, or just characters from the legendary past? In either case, who are these people?
The ideal answer to this Challenge would tell us:
(1) Who is the sculpture is depicting?
(2) Where the sculpture + building is located?
(3) If you can, what's the story here? This is a lot of work--what's being commemorated?
For Supreme Extra Credit, can you figure out who were the models for (a) the young girl in the center of the second picture, and (b) the rather ferocious looking fellow in the first?
As always, be sure to tell us what worked for you. We all want to learn what you did to discover the answer to these Challenges. Teach us!
P.S. I'll be traveling to a distant shore on Friday and Saturday of this week, so the answer will be posted by Monday of next week.
