Richmond upon Thames: the view from London's "Arcadia" along the River Thames in Southwest London.
Nice photo! I really like the sense of scale. (Have these guys got marble to burn?) Dead curious to see what the Kingston equivalent is going to be..
This reminded me of something when I made the initial comment, and I realise now it's the watercolours David Roberts made of the Middle East. Often he used figures like this to impart scale.Here's some examples - http://www.worldgallery.co.uk/gallery/David-Roberts-1.html
Mmmh I like the mosque here better than its Richmond counterpart.What a grand monument !
