Great new set!
The photo with the reflection of the clouds in the channel is really beautiful.

Always great photos! This time, my favorites - ''You Are Gifted - yes, we are", 'Trams in Birmingham' and 'Emma' (who is she?)

Emma is part of what turned out to be a rather controversial statue because it didn't include a Father figure, its name is A Real Birmingham Family.

A Real Birmingham Family is a public artwork and sculpture by Gillian Wearing, cast in bronze, and erected in Centenary Square, outside the Library of Birmingham, England, on 30 October 2014.

It depicts two local sisters, each single mothers called Roma and Emma Jones, with their two children; Roma's son Kyan and Emma's son Shaye. Emma is depicted as pregnant with a second son, Isaac, who was born before the sculpture was unveiled. A small plaque laid on the ground in front of the work describes it.

In a process begun in 2011, and coordinated by the city's Ikon Art Gallery, nominations for a "real" local family to model for the sculpture were invited. The Joneses were selected from a shortlist, by an independent panel, in August 2013.
