Photographer's Note

Another picture taken while browsing the many exhibits in Glasgow's Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum. The beautiful sculpture of a nymph is "Syrinx" by the Scottish sculptor William McMillan and it was voted the best sculpture of 1925 by the Royal Society of British Sculptors.

But I was more captivated by the "mature" (probably of my own age!) visitor and what I saw as a rapport between him and the pretty subject he appeared to be photographing.

ISO 800, 1/8 sec at f/5.6, focal length 40mm.

For those interested, I have added, as a workshop image, a photograph of Salvador Dali's "Christ of Saint John of the Cross" which was the painting which most inspired me during my visit. Painted in 1951, it was acquired by Glasgow Museums shortly after that and has been displayed ever since, apart from during a period of major repair and restoration in 1961 after a visitor attacked the painting with a stone and tore the canvas with his hands.
