She was a beauty. She braved the elements. :)

Mojo said...

Still compelling despite the ravages of time and the elements. The mark of truly great art, non?

Very nice. My wife and I have been known to take out cameras to the cemetery on many occasions.

Love the different shades of green and grey in this shot as well as the face.

Hi Jams, been missing you. I guess you had to go to the cemetery to see if you had missed anything. I can't id this one. :-)
Happy WW! (I've got a dumb cat on a YouTube today.)

It's very detailed, and a bit weathered. Nice shot.

Reminds me of the Dr. Who episode "Don't Blink". For a second I thought I was on Matthew James Didier's site. He's the one who always does the Dr. Who posts.

The contrast is inspired.
Best wishes

Happy WW! Remarkable beauty in that sculpture from a time past...

Thanx for your earlier visit! I invite your blog readers to see why Jenny Craig is a multi-millionaire on my WW-post this week. I gotta go do some sit-ups...

that's a beautiful sculpture. i've always thought sculptures or art that has been weathered by time and the elements have greater appeal to the senses. :D cheers!
