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.
This statue fits well into a cemetery.Happy WW(Tue) :)
Wow, awesome shot!Happy WW(T)!
The peace in her face is still apparent! Great shot, Jams.
She was a beauty. She braved the elements. :)
Still compelling despite the ravages of time and the elements. The mark of truly great art, non?
What a beautiful face. I really love this sculpture.
Very nice. My wife and I have been known to take out cameras to the cemetery on many occasions.
Hubby has visited before, and I certainly hope to go one day! Your images from this cemetery are stunning! Granted I LOVE funerary art :) Happy WW :) My WW entries for today are at:Pastyme With Good CompanyeThe Paranormal BlogNuttin' ButPlease stop by if you have a moment :)
Another lovely one from the cemetary.
Very mysterious looking face... Great shot! Happy WW! :-)
I like the bright leaves against the stone, but somehow that face has a softness - lovely!
Great sculpture! Love your shot... Happy WW!
Cool one for wordless,,, Hope you can see my WW entry too.. Happy WW!
Great picture. Have a great WW!!!My post will be up in three hourse here.
Oh, I meant 'hours', not 'hourse'... :-)
So beautiful...I love the different shades of greens in the leaves too.
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.
I rather like the corkscrew curls! Happy WW.
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
Great shot. You could make a huge story and it holds lots of history
the face reflects so much sadness..
Would need some cleaning !
That is certainly a face rich with detail and history.
This is beautiful. She just looks like she belongs there, doesn't she.
Wonderful Jams!!! Love the angle of the shot...you always amaze me with your photography.
Beautiful! Mom loves to walk through old cemeteries. She's never had her camera with her though.
Happy WW. Cememtaries can be some beautiful places. Odd, I know.
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...peace, Villager
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!New York Cheesecake with CaramelFather/Daughter Bonding
