He looks exactly like the Christo Re in Rio and Lisbon! Have a hot and brazilan weekend, and watch out for the caipirinha! Hope the weather is a bit warmer now in Florida.

You got this statue with the right shadow and a perfect sky.

That is so beautiful. I lived in Tallahassee since 1994, and did not see or know that statue of Christ. You are a very good photographer.

He has a lovely face - and as everyone says, the blue sky sets the white off so well.

What a great photo! It reminds me of the Christ of the Ozarks statue in Eureka Springs, Arkansas.

Nice capture of the statue and beautiful sky. Brattcat in Brattleboro also did a cemetery today.

BTW, thanks for pointing out the similarity of pictures Steffe and I did during the same week. My take was that great minds think alike:)

Have a great weekend.
