a beautiful day in the cemetery

i'm supposed to be writing, but i goofed off today. sort of. a local paper is doing an article on me for halloween (!!) complete with cemetery photos. it was a beautiful day, so i took some photos of my own. i'll try to post more this week.



i love the way the soot has given her face more expression. She even has pupils that she didn't have to begin with, and they seem to be looking at us. the broken nose gives her a skeletal look.

thanks!
we were trying to figure out if the statue was male or female. it actually looks like a topless pubescent girl. kinda odd.

Lovely photos Anne. I would love to see what Jason Evans would do with them in prose. He has a knack for that.
