Photographer's Note

This is the 4th in the 2 for 1 series.

This is also taken at Trafalgar Square.
Here we have the statue of King Charles I and Nelson's Column.

King Charles I, became heir to the throne when his elder brother died. He had a speach impairment. His ultimate refusal to compromise over religious and political situations led to civil war and his execution. It also was the temporary suspension of the Monarchy in England during which Cromwell was made Lord Protector of England.

Trafalgar square was I mentioned in this picture , was made to commemorate Lord Nelson's greatest Naval battle victory at Trafalgar. The column is 44 mts height. On top of it is the statue of Nelson. Some say its so high, so that he can see the sea from up there.

What I liked about this picture is 2 things, which are the same.
1) The two statues seem to be taken at different places and then merged in the photo (to me at least)
2) The two statues, seem totally unrelated. One statue is the mark a great victory, the other to glorify a King, who some say was a martyr and some do not.

Critiques / Comments / Workshops / More on the hisorical details on these two are welcome
