Firstly great photos Syd!

Secondly sorry for hyjacking your thread, but the man needs answers!

Greg you are correct; that is the Queen Victora memorial located in her namesake gardens:

Sorry mate - I have been pre-occupied with a bunch of nimby old farts I guess that these "colonial" statues can be found all across the new world

Oh my word ... there is quite a bit that we can read into that ...

1.
I see things as androgynous, you see things as male & female ... or ...
2.
I prefer the "active/top" role (which I definitely don't, I am always passive/bottom) and you prefer the passive role
3.
I like to see the backs of people (not very trustworthy of people) and you prefer people face-on (very trustworthy)

How do you interpret it ?
