The title of this blog comes from a Gaelic expression -"putting on the poor mouth"-which means to exaggerate the direness of one's situation in order to gain time or favour from creditors.
Quite unique at the cemetery. I've got a feeling it's the tomb of a musician.Happy TW/WW! :)
interesting! happy WT/WW ^_~.
Even after one's death, they still want their abode to be decorated. :)
That is strange and sad. That cherub has one earthy body!
Some musician's? Unique!
That's interesting. It's very detailed.
Beautiful! I love cemetery art! Happy WW :) My WW entries for today are at:Pastyme With Good CompanyeThe Paranormal BlogNuttin' ButPlease stop by if you have a moment :)
That's very beautiful. Great shot too. I'm amazed at how you can see his muscles or I think that's muscle.
Did you pop over for that, Jams?
Looks creepy to me!
Very cool in a creepy, Gothic sort of way. B&W was definitely the right choice. I can imagine this on a cornice of an old cathedral or opera house too.Very compelling.
Nice close up. Nice detail.
no way. never seen anything like this...happy ww.
That's a very interesting shot! Happy WW!
It kind of creeps me out too, that face is just a bit too realistic for my taste.
He looks quite old for a cherub. Happy WW Jams! Nice one!
very interesting. I don't know if I like the face on it though
Oh, it's fantastic! I love old cemeteries. Such intricacy for the dead raises so many questions.
Ah, that's great! Cemeteries can have very beautiful decorated graves indeed!
That's... kinda odd. :-)Here is my post. Happy WW!
How beautiful yet eerie. Take care!
Hi Jams, you are doing that Lachaise Cemetery in real fine. Thank you.Happy WW, thank you for your visit and the nice comment...Oh yes, I might borrow your 'one basket' joke for my Saturday morning joke. OK?..

Oh my....Im speechless. Happy WW.
:-) I love the intricate detail. So sad that it's from a grave though. Happy WW!
A cherub with a beard? Guess he's one of the older ones...
interesting detail. happy WW!
This is a novel choice for Wordless Wednesday, Jams. That's quite a chubby cherub.Bobbie
Both detailed and weathered, quite a find.
It's beautiful and sort of scary at the same time...Happy WW :)
that looked like a real person..thanks for sharing.
too cute to be in the cemetery. ;) mine's up! hope you can check it out.
Great entry. Greetings from Sri Lanka!
Hahaha ! that's the tip of the top !
Wow that looks old.
i should try to see this for my self... is that a beard or an effect of the shadow on the angel's face?... i like how the photo was taken, it not only shows the detail but also the texture and the play of shadow and light :)...
There's a lot of emotion in that statue. Very interesting!
That is beautiful. Happy WW!
i find this hauntingly beautiful!
Not quite the cherub, is he? The detail is amazing. I love old cemetaries...in daylight of course! ;)
Is that a carving? Amazing detail.Great shot, Jams.
What fantastic detail. What an interesting WW. Thanks for stopping by my blog.
Nice shot. I agree with Sandy about the sad quality it has. I love wandering through cemetery and grave sites and taking pictures.
I love that photo. I take a lot of pics myself around cemetaries and I spent nearly a whole day at Pere Lachaise a few years ago. great place for photography.
I'm glad you like it Devonshire Dumpling
