It was a slightly hazy day and not much drama with light and shadows but plenty of statues lending their own drama to the scene. Most of the figures are Italian marble and would have originally been pure white.The marble is constantly being cleaned on the classical statues and in the most basic way with a toothbrush and water ( I am no expert but some conservation work is not as glamorous as it sounds!). Each statue takes eight hours or so to clean and they are not taken back to their original whiteness.
I am always tilting my head at different angles to look at things in a slightly different way. It gives whatever is in front of your eyes a different perspective and sometimes you see something you may not have noticed from the usual straightforward chin ahead glance. I was fascinated by the delicacy of this marble carved arm that stuck out so far from the statue and seemed to defy gravity.

although he may have tilted a little too far!
