A horseman (well, more than that, but) - so very Boston. Another simply amazing B&W.
PS - the seagull sequence became apparent after I reviewed the photos. I don't often have enough forethought to plan the posts.

Wonderful! At first sight, G.W. seems to be a part of the fence..Unic composition!

Nicely framed shot. Washington, slightly out of focus, is a little like O'Toole riding out of the heat haze in Lawrence of Arabia.

It looks as though he is and his horse are engaging in a considerable feat of balance.

Wonderful composition!

This is brilliantly seen and executed. Monochrome is the perfect choice for this. I would like to see this printed and framed with your other monochrome of the G.W. statue.

So well seen and beautifully composed.

The perspective is great with its antagonism between the blur in the background and the sharpness in the foreground.
