Lovely picture, Jams. I love to take pictures at cemeteries, not sure why...

You will definitely want to come over and check my WW post later (in about 8 hours). I always like it when people can get a laugh at my expense... :-)

Situated at the right place :)
Shot from a good perspective too

Quite dramatic. Very strong (curved) lines on the figure.

Sherry at EX Marks the Spot said...

That is interesting and, as catsynth said, quite dramatic. I've never seen anything quite like it, Jams.

Happy WW! I'm always amazed at the immense talent of people who scult things. This image is another example of that talent!

America is blessed to have a family with young 'uns in the White House. I invite your blog readers to enjoy the faces of Malia and Sasha Obama.

peace, Villager

Really interesting Jams, it looks so sorrow filled without even showing facial expression that is some artist. I love all the shadows playing in this and the angle as well!
