Stoned Flowers

I find statues both intriguing and creepy as heck. Something about them both looking ancient and somehow ready to come alive. However, if you’re going to photograph human figures, it’s definitely easiest to do it with ones that don’t move a lot.

Time to Go

I’m not sure what the artist was looking to capture with this, but the girl looks terrified to me. And mom looks ticked off. Maybe she was out playing too late? I’ll have to look for a description next time I’m there, maybe there’s a label somewhere.  Most statues I’ve photographed have been in cemeteries, […]

Watching and Waiting

Or something. 🙂  This is one of the photos where I did take some liberty with the clouds, but I always try […]

Heavy Heart

Sometimes I get a composition by pure accident that I end up liking. In this case, I’d been walking through the cemetery after a lot of hiking through the woodsy trails nearby and was tired so hadn’t put much thought into it. But I ended up really liking the way everything in the shot moves […]
