Graham’s Photo Challenge – One
I was over visiting Graham’s blog the other day there, and he has decided to give himself a regular photographic challenge. This month’s is on the theme ‘One’ and he invites others to take it up. Never one to resist a challenge, I’ve decided that I would give you a couple of photos of the same subject taken towards the end of 2007. The subject is the Wallace Monument and I think it fits with the theme quite nicely, as it actually looks like an enormous number 1 sitting up high on the hill overlooking my university. (It also looks extremely phallic, but that’s not the theme of the challenge!) For me it is a strong symbol of home, and I can’t actually remember a time when it didn’t form a part of my ken. Built in the 19th century by the architect John Thomas Rochead, it is a great example of Victorian Gothic architecture which commemorates the 13th century Scottish hero William Wallace. No images for William Wallace exist, but experts agree that he probably bore no resemblance to Mel Gibson. Anyway, if you want to know more about him you can always check out Wikipedia.
On with the photo challenge!
Now, I know it’s probably cheating to give you photos that I had already taken, but I just couldn’t resist. Forgive me?
