I. K. Brunel by Wayne Holman

Canvas Prints


This is a statue of one of the best engineers the world has ever seen, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. His achievements are legendary including railways, tunnels, ships and bridges.
This statue can be found in Saltash, Cornwall UK and is situated underneath one of his constructions, The Royal Albert Bridge, which links Cornwall to Devon and the rest of the Britain.
I took this as mono but tweaked it in photoshop to give it a more old fashioned feel. I hope you like the result…

    Can you imagine wearing a hat like that all day long? Especially when you’re taking photos all the time! Yet somehow it suits him to a T. I certainly like the sepia treatment which is perfect for the shot. Great work Wayne. Peter

    Thank you Peter, apparently he wore the hat to make himself look taller, he was only just over 5ft tall.

    Well, I never knew that was there!!! How wonderful, I love that photo and the treatment really does give it a “real” look about it. I see they have put a statue of him in the middle of the roundabout at Pennycomequick as well.

  • Thanks Pat, I didn’t there was one at Pennycomequick aswell

    I didn’t know that either. Anyway good place to keep your sandwhiches and a bottle of fall down water. Great shot Wayne.

  • Cheers Andy, maybe that’s the real reason it was so big eh !!!!!
