Monochorme Weekly




Last Thursday was another holiday here, Teacher's Day, so I took Lucas to Petropolis Imperial Museum's garden, where D. Pedro II lived with Princess Isabel when they moved to Brazil from Portugal (we became a colony back in the 1500 when Brazil was "discovered" by them).
My little witch took several beautiful photos of all nature around the place (I'll surely post them asap, he's got a gift for photos!). I converted this one into B&W, because I liked the angle he took it. I wish there was a sign saying which god is this, or if it'sonly a "generic" one.



For more cool B & W photos, visit Aileni's meme page.

I suspect it is the Greek God Apollo due to the snake. If you have a photo of the whole statue you may also see a snake (Python)

I think it's either Hermes or Apollo, due to the lyre. Hermes invented the lyre and I think gave it to Apollo.

Statues look so beautiful in b&w.

Really great photo - well done Lucas! I do really like this in black and white, with the dark trees in the background!

Nice photo, Lucas. Btw, sure am glad that your country was 'discovered'.
