First off, some pictures I took from our trip to California last August. This is the statue outside the Shrine of Our Lady of Peace in Santa Clara. The 32 foot high statue can be seen from highway 101 in the heart of Silicon Valley.
Some different perspectives on the same statue:
In the picture above you can see the Yahoo! building in the background, but in the picture below it looks significantly larger. I was quite surprised when I got home and looked again at my pictures. The only explanation I can come up with is that I took this second one with the zoom lense, from a distance. But you can clearly see that Our Lady looks out for all of us yahoos!
