I wandered into one of our community’s cemeteries today in search of photo opportunities and I ended up visiting the little angel that graces a 1911 grave site. I have photographed her before but I couldn’t resist taking a few more pictures.
She seems obvlious to the cold and snow that embrace her. . .
For the first time in two years, I have updated my blog’s look. I’ve been contemplating a change for a while but fear of the unknown kept me at bay. When you change themes in blogs, all of the photos have to be resized, hopefully by an automated process. And who knows what you’ll get?
But it looks like things are working, though if you aren’t using a 21st century web browser, you may have problems. Let me know if you do.
Here are a few of the changes:
- A more user friendly interface with links to older and similar posts
- An ability to purchase prints through a pro lab
- And a nice slide show at the top of the page
Those who have been reading my blog for years will probably hate what I’ve done. But I’m not going back. . . .
This ornament, which adorns our “tropical fish” bathroom, is my favorite Christmas ornament. I have tried to photograph it as it hangs near the bathroom window but haven’t gotten good results. So this morning I put it on our dining room Christmas tree and photographed it there.
I like the textures of this ornament – especially in the star being held by the little angel.
I have posted this angel before but came across a series of photos I had taken in 2002. So I thought I’d posted a different point of view.
To me cemeteries are always photographically interesting and I think that this blog is evidence of that. This angel is one of the first things I photographed in Mt. Hope cemetery in Watertown, SD. As you can see, the angel is worn by time and covered in part by dark lichen. And she is engaged in quiet prayer every time I visit her.
