[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is one of the Zodiac statues located at the Charles Aznavour square in yerevan.
I've arrived about ten minutes early to my business meeting and enjoyed having my camera with me :)

So here is the Libra guy for you, which is considered to be indecisive...

I did not make the photo to grab the Libra character, but Themis (Greek goddess of justice) was on my mind, as a general justice symbol; which seems to be biased here...

I think a lower POV would empower the figure which would improve my context here... May be next time.

I'd also like bringing the figure out of center, but I was limited due to the 11 neighbors and the Kino (Cinema) Moscow posters ;)

Hope you'll find it interesting.

Strong message and good b&w capture, Garo !
Fits with my mood of today.
Justice was the main word of our candidate during the presidential elections campaign in France.
Now the era of injustice is about to open ...

Добрый день, Гаро:)
Только что зашла на вашу страничку и с удовольствием обнаружила новую работу!
Очень интересный снимок ... хорошая композиция и удачная экспозиция. Замечательный ровный свет, великолепная детализация.


Բարև Գարո!
What a nice close-up of the little statue. To be honest I never even knew that the figures of that fountain were the zodiac signs, but Libra... that's me! :)
Nice bw capture.
