The master himself

Meet the master himself, Auguste Rodin ... or at least I think it's him! This is one of dozens of sculptures in the sculpture garden of the Rodin Museum.

A nicely-framed view of this composition! Again, I am impressed by the verdant aura that is created by the sunlight and foliage.

@Steven: Thanks, Steven! It was exactly this leafy canopy and the sunrays bursting through that made photography rather challenging that day!

Powerful compo. I too love the greeny shiny blackness giving it a subtle life, but Rodin's sculpture just sang out with life to begin with.
