I’ve had a busy few days and didn’t manage to get the photos I had planned for ‘S’ so I hope I’m forgiven for using some I had already. These particular sculptures are all of woman – so now I’ll have think up something else for ‘W’. Actually I have an idea as long as I can get the shots in time, so fingers crossed I make it to ‘Z’. Nearly there.
