We spent a few days in León, Spain last month and we were walking back to our hotel after visiting the San Marcos Parador one day when we reached the Plaza de Santo Domingo and passed this naked giant sitting on the sidewalk with his left arm outstretched and palm up as if he was asking for a handout. He didn’t move and he didn’t say a word and we noticed that he was oblivious to us and other pedestrians as well as to all the cars whizzing by. I stopped and took his picture and we then resumed walking back to our hotel. That picture will be my entry to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge this week.

I took several photos of interesting statues on our trip to Spain and Portugal and I’m sure I’ll convert many of them to monochrome in the months ahead.
Australian photographer Leanne Cole hosts the weekly Monochrome Madness Challenge. Drop by her website on Thursdays (Wednesdays in Europe and North America) to see what photographers from all over the world are doing in monochrome these days. And why don’t you check out Leanne’s rules and submit your own entry next week?
My next posting will be another in my Discovering León series .
