photoblog image Day and Night

Day and Night


George's Dock Building is an ornate art deco building, very grand for it's main purpose of providing a ventilation tunnel for the Mersey Tunnel.  Set into the side of the building are two solemn basalt images "Day and Night" to represent the ever open tunnel.

The idea for presenting the two pictures as pages in a book came from Digiatl Photo magazine some time back, as did the template, although the two pictues of the statues and the assembly of the final image are all my own work.

Les Auld: Thanks Loius, appreciate the comment.
Very very nice masterpiece of art ! A good idea to show it !!
Les Auld: Thanks Zeb, I did think the statues needed something a bit special.
Oh this is so clever! I love it. You must be delighted to have found this way of presenting your photographs. (:o
Les Auld: Thanks Rosalyn, I do like this way but I think it can be used a bit too much so I need to exercise a bit of care here.
Superb image Les. I really like this very much indeed
Les Auld: Thanks Bill, glad you like it.
A spectacular photo. Executed well with shades very guessed right. When watching this image believes in the eyes a dificil situation to explain... is created a species of depth that goes of ahead to back. A fascinating sensation! It seems that the book this suspending in the air. It enchants to me! LIKEY
Les Auld: Praise indeed Jose, thanks for that.
This is very cleverly done. Were the niches in the book part of the template? I love the two sculptures too.
Les Auld: Thanks Ian, the niches do indeed exist on the building, the sculptures themsleves are very serene.
