"All the people
that pass through our lives
leave their marks
in an endless flow back and forth...

The remaining ones...
are simply because
they gave their hearts to come
in line with our souls..."

I loved this post! Thanks for this fabulous ANGEL !

This angel is beautifully composed against the dark background. I appreciate that you gave the statue a sense of place. This really works in monochrome.

That's a lovely shot. I think it's perfect for mono. Beautiful composition; she looks so graceful and like she's about to leave. I think cemeteries are excellent places to look for photo ops...and you certainly found one there!

Excellent shot and what a great angel statue. I scanned your posts below. I like the idea of 100 strangers. Nice posts.

Great contrast. Interesting grave marker.

Anne said...

After all I love it, the dreaming sight with all those trees around.

Nice week to you from Anne in Norway.

Saretta said...

What a beautiful angel. It's a tombstone, isn't it?

Malyss said...

Cemeteries are a great source of inspiration for photographers.You choosed a beautyful statue, smart and elegant, with some lightness in its opened wings, like if it was about to fly away, or had just been landing; You made a very poetic picture.

Aileni said...

I think these statues were actually made to encourage B&W photographers.

Babooshka said...

Perfectly angelic mononchrome,

cieldequimper said...

Perfect composition. It looks like it's in a graveyard, any story to it?

brattcat said...

You've chosen such a fine angle for this. I love her in profile with that elegant wing rising behind her and that mass of hair caught and just barely held in a knot.

RuneE said...

I enjoyed that one so cleat from the background and only the other gravestone clearly visible.

Incredible image: this black and white reminds me an old movie.

Gorgeous!

Hilda said...

It's a beautiful photo, but I can't help it: the hair on my nape and arms are all standing up! Quite creepy in b/w.

Lois said...

So pretty!

Dagrun said...

Really nice in b&w.

Daryl said...

Love this .. its eloquent!

Snapshutter said...

This has a mystical feel to it. Nice one.

Jacob said...

Very nice. Obviously, you've been rummaging around in cemeteries again.

I can't do that. It'd be the death of me.

Dina ... UK said...

So serene.....
Lovely monochrome, as these statues should be..:-)

Lovely mono! :-)

Gennasus said...

Striking image. Most probably more so for being in black and white, I doubt it would stand out so well in colour (but I could be wrong!)

The Katzbox said...

Beautiful. There is an old cemetary in central Ohio that I drive through every time I visit. There is statuary quite similar to this in the oldest section...all of the angels are female...I love their presence...you have a beautiful one here...they appear to be poised so lightly on the stone, as if they're only staying a moment-juxtaposed against the eternal nature of their surroundings...

Beautiful and compelling...

kazu said...

It's beautiful.
Great photo!!

Carver said...

What a beautiful sculpture of the angel and so well photographed.

hip chick said...

Beautiful photo.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

Monochrome suits this angel. I'm always surprised to see female angels. Ah, something to ponder today. ;-)

Dragonstar said...

A very fine composition.
