So not the same sculptor.....and yet they look similar in style.
I did not know who the sculptors were and was too idle to search....so Thankyou Ryewolf for furthering my education yet again.
You can always learn something on Accyweb....one thing is Never Bet! and certainly not with your life(though mine is old and tatty).

Re: Today in pictures

I only knew because I've photographed them both before, several times, and had researched who the sculptors were. The image of the one outside Elmfield Hall I took earlier this month.

I've also photographed the one in Oak Hill Park, the WWI memorial which was designed by Sir Charles Herbert Reilly, the sculptor was Herbert Tyson Smith.

The war memorial in Oswaldtwistle was produced by Louis Frederick Roslyn, he also created the memorials in Clitheroe, Darwen, Haslingden and Rawtenstall.

Re: Today in pictures

While home the other week I visited a good friend (Ex Military mate) who lives down on Mersea Island. On the approach to the Island they've been paying their respects to local lads who fell in the "Great War".


I also eventually managed to visit the National Arboretum in Staffordshire, a very moving & emotional experience (in particular the Bastion memorial wall, KRA Elliot being for me the most significant).

Re: Today in pictures

Hi Ryewolf90,

Forgive my ignorance, but what was the occasion?

Cheers

Re: Today in pictures

It was part of the British Textile Biennial Festival.

This was celebrating the pioneering Blackburn Film-makers Mitchell and Kenyon and the centenary of the Cotton Exchange becoming a cinema.

In 1899 Mitchell and Kenyon produced KIDNAPPING BY INDIANS, a film that is now recognised as the first western ever made

Re: Today in pictures

I went to Manchester last week..thought I had better make the most of it while the X41 is still with us.
So there are three pictures from that visit(I did take more).....
and yesterday I took a young man to The St Nicholas Markets in York...we went on a day trip with moving people.
If I say it was packed then this is an understatement...could not realy view the wares as there were too many folk milling around.
So there are some pics of YORK.
Some of these were taken at dusk so they look a bit dark, but that is because it was dark.
I hope you enjoy my pics

1) a bauble on the tree outside the Cathedral.....if you look closely you can see Manchester reflected and little me.
2) this sculpture is outside St Anne's Church....and while I am not religious this sculpture makes me feel incredibly sad.
3) the feet of the Sculpture which clearly show it to be a homeless Christ crucified(there is a message in there somewhere)
4) A glorious Christmas Wreath outise an eating establishment in York
5) A christmas Lantern outside the Lamb and Lion by Bootham Gate.
6) Cascade of light on a church nar the minster.
7) the green space near the minster in dusk and lit with festive lights.
8) Shoppers gazing into well lit windows.
9) Warm and cosy glow of the tearooms.
10 Another well lit shop front.
