Sir Walter Scott.. now there's a man of lasting fame. You'd be to if the city built a monument in your honour that's larger than most buildings in the city and then they stick a statue of you at the bottom.. what could you have done that's so damn incredible? Well he was a historical novelist, playwright, poet and historian. Perhaps the arts were a little more appreciated back then than they are now.. then again.. he's the 17th century version of a holywood star!
I took this shot during the christmas market which gets built around this monument. The ride behind him is one I have mentioned a few times in my posts.. I think its the devil, it goes up spins in the wind and is an all round death trap people love to get into. It was rising as I took this shot and was about to start spinning, to me it kind of looks like Sir Walter Scott has a fabulous hat.
Thanks for Looking.
