  2. Ol' William doesn't look any friendlier close up. Nice job on these. They really convey the power of the sculpture.

    I caught a few frames this morning on the way in to work that might interest you. Soon as I get home and get them off the camera I'll send you some.

  7. Hi Sandy,

    the way you took or cropped these photos all close up makes them look like rock people that actually live in the rocks. I love the effect!

  54. In my view, the Harrub Pilgrim Memorial belongs to the great artistic monuments in the world. Hermon Atkins MacNeil is a very fine artist. I am awed with the expressions on the faces of the pilgrims.
