Photographer's Note

It was a gorgeous day at Oslo. We decided to take the tram and visit the legendary Vigeland Park ( See Wikipedia info below )
It is a huge place with hundreds of naked statues, sculpted by the great Norwegian artist Gustav Vigeland. At one point, I approached the plateau where a sculpted monolith stands. And when I turned towards the west I found out that I couldn't tell between the real people and the statues. I dedicate this picture to my friend Bulent Atalay.
(Wikipedia) Vigeland Sculpture Park is a part of Frogner Park, located in Oslo, Norway, 3 km northwest of the city centre. The park covers 80 acres (320,000 m2) and features 212 bronze and granite sculptures created by Gustav Vigeland. Vigeland personally sculpted every figure out of clay and individual craftsmen were contracted to fabricate the pieces into what they are today. These works of art reside along an 850 meter-long axis divided into six sections: The Main Gate, The Bridge, The Children’s Playground, The Fountain, The Monolith Plateau and the Wheel of Life.
