This shot of mine was the 25th to make Flickr Explore, the 500 most interesting photographs of the day. The sculpture, in the center of Amsterdam, is that of the Dutch author Multatuli. The addition of the girl is a nice bonus to increase the contrasts. Black and white is a logical choice for the shot, and as a matter of fact, the majority of my explored shots have been black and white.
