Kodak CX7430 Zoom, aperture at f4.60, shutter speed at 1/30 sec., focal length of 102mm, no-flash, ISO 140

There are 4 sets of statues on top of the Main Building in UST. I have pictures of all sets. Among the four, my favorite is this set which you see in this photo. They are the statues of --- from left to right --- Fr. Vincent de Beauvais, O.P., St. Augustine, St. Raymond de Peñafort, O.P. They were all creations of the great Italian painter and sculptor Francesco Riccardo Monti. I took this picture minutes after sunset. For me, as the darkness slowly crept in, the sculpures remained standing guard and watching over the world below.

Silhouttes against a blue sky. Very impressive indeed.

The picture also reminds of the three wise men at the birth of Christ.
