Personnaly I prefer put bottles of wine in the ship!

Nevertheless ...

For me, this is a very interesting capture. As far I understand, the job was well done. This is a beautiful photo. Thanks you for sharing. It deserves (and I do) a << VOTE + LIKE >>.

I really found your photo in order to vote … not so easy …

More generally, you have a beautiful gallery.

See you soon… Best regards from France (Grasse).

Good to hear from you again, Chinappi. Yes, could say a waste of a good bottle, but all in the interests of art. Your very kind comment much appreciated. (I don't know how to find photos for voting either. Very frustrating).

Best wishes, Brian.

That's a new one on me. I didn't see that on last year.

brian01 on November 11, 2011

Pleased to meet you, Stefan. Many thanks for your kind comment. This plinth is used for displaying different sculptures etc that are replaced regularly. I believe the next display will be a boy on a rocking-horse!

Best wishes, Brian.

Stefan Hahne on November 11, 2011

Thanks for you additional explanation. I will see it on my next trip to London in december.
