A blue mood... ? Looking up worriedly at a Blue Moon ?

Photo Cache said...

Looks like it has survived many a blue moon or something.

Sue said...

Excellent for the theme, and spooky holiday! Have a great weekend Jams!

Carver said...

That's a beautiful choice for the blue theme. Happy weekend.

Leslie said...

How's your shoulder? I did my back, but it's settling down. Oh dear - can't do much housework - what a shame!

My digital scrapbook place has been talking about that cemetery in your "blue" post! What a coincidence! :)

I didn't have to look very far for blue this week. Only as far as, who is that sitting on the pool table?

She used to model for Picasso during his Blue Period... ?

jams o donnell said...

THanks everyone. Haha Aileni!

julie said...

The wall should have been white but turned blue because the person feels blue?

So many possibilities :)

Liz said...

Oh I love cemeteries. You have inspired me to visit ours and try taking some photos.

NICE PHOTO JAMS

Maddy said...

It's going to be too much of a whizzy weekend to join in this week but I can see you've done some whizzing about of your own.
Best wishes

What this blue art wants to bring the message of?

The Lone Beader said...

This is really wonderful!

Frugal Grandma said...

Hauntingly "Blue"tiful!

Annie said...

Wow, what a cool and moody blue photo. I love the texture of this one.

Love the "Picasso" comment too, LOL.

Thanks for visiting mine and have a great weekend!

littlepolaris said...

Wow this looks really nice. It is a carving or a painting? I couldn't differentiate it.

YTSL said...

Very ghostly. And sad looking -- which I guess is appropriate seeing as your photo is of something in a cemetery!

jmb said...

I thinking you are stretching it again Jams, but it is a very interesting photo and subject. Have a great weekend.

RJ Flamingo said...

That's really interesting - I love the detail here.

Please stop by if you get the chance - I'm "Blue" on so many different levels this week!

Nice entry for this weeks theme. These kind of "sculptures" always have a story. Wonder what this one's is. Haha think I'll go along with Aileni! LOL

Very interesting!

I love the details in this! Great shot for the blue theme!

charlotte said...

Magnificent!

Amazing Gracie said...

I would love to visit some of the world's older cemeteries. We in the US get excited if we find one over 100 years old. I can't imagine what it would be like to see the art work displayed in graveyards.
Thanks for yet again, another great shot.
~~~Blessings~~~

SabineM said...

amazing shot... I love how it turned out

girasoli said...

Interesting photo. Is it a painting or a sculpture? I could stare at it for hours. I wonder what she is thinking? Great choice for this week's theme!!

jams o donnell said...

Thanks everyone. The detail is from teh Belfort memorial, a battle of teh Franco Prussian War. In reality it is more of a turqoise colour

PastorMac's Ann said...
