Brilliant Ayush: from a very famous photographic image!
this memorial is very grand Ayush... and the likeness of MacArthur is perfect....petersmile
Very cool Ayush! General MacArthur's airplane "Bataan" resides nine miles north of me.
Good picture Ayush. He did indeed keep his promise and was one of the great commanders of WW2

He did keep his promise Ayush, wish we had skys like that over hear.
I like the sculptures Ayush, there's a real sense of movemnet & purpose. Your shot is great set against the blue sky smile
An interesting image Ayush, nicely processed & interesting to see the tide marks on their trousers, as if they'd just stepped out of the sea! The sunglasses do look a little incongruous, are they your personal touch!? smile
A good shot, Ayush, a fine monument,to a historical moment.
What an amazing statue of memory from all those years ago.
Yes Ayush, he said, I will return.

A very unusual sculpture. Nice capture.

Funny that statues should be wearing dark glasses. Must be walking glasses.
Mmm - I realise the historical significance but it smacks rather of colonialism smile
