Well all I can come up with is operator error. Not MY error of course; I had an untrained female assistant helping me when I was taking these photos. Most likely SHE did something when I wasn't looking. I guess all I can do is shoot another roll of film, including the statue again, taking care that my focus is spot on before I shoot. Then, assuming all the new images come out properly focused, soundly cuss out my assistant! I will post the results here once I get the next roll of film back.
