The Illuminated Crowd - La Foule Illuminée

I think Pat asked the other day what the statue was at the bottom of my office building. Came in early and took some shots so you can see the welcoming committee at the entrance of my office!

Two guys arguing?

I love your perspective on the first one! The people are kind of creepy. Is it wierd that I find statues kind of scary? :)

WOW...just brilliant. I love the perspectives you got on this. I think the ones arguing are actually singing to eachother. (I am so weird) The fisheye works so awesome on these shots.
