    Both Arms: Created by Leeds-born Kenneth Armitage the open arms are expressing a feeling of welcome. The work is envisaged as a monument to friendship. Wonderful shot.

    I love the angle you have here. It looks as if the arms are coming down from the clouds!

    Agreed - like the way you framed it.

    Thanks for the info on that I shall have to look into his work a bit more and see if he has any other pieces in place.
    George I think it is time you paid a little visit back to Leeds as there are some great new photo's to be had around the place, if you are going in the near future give me a shout and I'll meet up with you (plus we can pop in for a swift pint ((or two)) along the way) and take a few shots.
    Thanks everyone for the comments and I hope to have a few more images for you soon.

    Me too, nice one. I haven't noticed this one before, must re-visit.
    Am I jumping the gun, Baldrick, or are the words "I have a cunning plan" marching with ill-deserved confidence in the direction of this conversation?
