That’s a lot of bull ...

Photographer - Carlo Allegri of Reuters / Appeared in WSJ - April 13


  • I have a photo with it but I wonder how they managed to get the crowd away. There is no way you can normally take a photo without someone else in it. Actually more than just a few.

    That is a lot of bull for sure!
    I use a cropped 'Charging Bull' image as my picture on another investing forum.

    If you value art, the photo is extremely well composed. All the elements of photography (like placement, balance, color, scale, contrast, lighting) combine for a striking image.

    I have a scale model of the charging bull prominently displayed at home in a corner devoted to NYC photos and memorabilia - most from visits to The Big Apple. :)

  • @hank,

    The 'Charging Bull' sculpture produced by Arturo Di ModicaI is amazing.
    There is a reason this is an iconic work of art!
    I agree that the above photo is striking and very well-composed.

    Thanks for the background on the charging bull. I sort of realized it was a classic sculpture, but hadn’t really paid much attention. Deserves the accolades for sure.

    My favorite in NYC is the monument to author Lewis Carroll in Central Park. Worth a trip to the city just to see it IMHO (and a lovely framed photo hangs in my home). While more artistically impressive without the kids, I linked this shot because it provides an idea of the monument’s size.
