PhotoHunt 78 - Curve

When I saw this week's theme for the , I knew straight away what picture I wanted to use.

This rather curvy lady, also known as "Reclining woman with cloth", or in her current position as the "Broadgate Venus" is a sculpture made by Fernando Botero, who appears to be Colombia's answer to Henry Moore.

I often walk round to Broadgate in my lunch hour and love to take pictures of this wonderful woman.
The picture below I have named: "Gone with the wind"...

This week I am almost on time with my entry. Now I'm off to have a look at your curves!

I love the sculpture. You did us a great service with the three perspectives. I especially like the third with the man sitting on the sculpture's pedestal. It really helps put in perspective how substantial the sculpture is.

What an amazing lady, and great photo! She is very pretty, and has nice curves.
I didn't realize how large she was until the 'Wind' shot :)
