    Something new in Sydney ........ but not our Sydney.

    In Sydney, Nova Scotia, the merchant navy transported supplies in convoys during the Battle of the Atlantic, Canada’s longest military engagement that lasted from Sept. 1939 to May 1945. German U-boats patrolled the waters in an attempt to cut off much-needed supplies overseas, and there were many deaths. I was there not long ago and they had created a monument to those who died.

    I thought it made an interesting image .....

    Well taken Bob, showing good detail and looks great in B & W, particularly at that angle.
    I'm presuming this sculpture monument is made of Bronze?

    I presume it was - I'm not all that conversant with the materials they use in these things. It was a hard shot to take, partly because of all the people milling around it, but mainly because it was the worst possible time of day with glaring overhead sun and awful harsh light for photos! It did give a nice shadow for their arms though.
