Statuary – A Possible Cure All???

March 4th, 2011

I weep for Spring.

In an attempt to make myself feel better, warmer, tanner, fitter, younger, smarter and better looking

I have assembled a few statue photographs.

I am sure it will work.

Aren’t you?

  • Nice collection of photos Rechelle! I’m weeping for spring just like that first poor girl, and you! Sigh. I love the middle photo of the girl statue in Manhattan, Kansas.

    I’ve always been fond of cemetery statures, and have taken many photos of them myself. Here’s my favorite:

    She’s not there anymore. I hope she didn’t finally break in two after getting blown over by the wind frequently (it seemed like I always had to set her upright when I visited the cemetery).

    Spring will arrive soon, I hope!

      What a lovely statue, so sorry she is no longer there.

    I weep for Spring.

    You don’t have long to wait – Spring (the vernal equinox) comes in 16 days. Right now, in Wamego, you’re getting over 2½ minutes of extra daylight per day. You’re practically racing into the sunshine!

    Nice! Like Anne, I enjoy walking through old cemeteries and looking at statues and stones. Love the weeping angel statue, and the bottom picture reminds me of some statues I saw in a yard in Vevay, Indiana.

  • Kiara:

    Wow, beautiful photos.
    The first one reminds me of the Weeping Angels from Doctor Who .

    Kiara – I was gonna say, don’t look away or that one might end up looking like this: http://1.bp.blogspot.com/_s59ARuFLHSs/S9DDRsN8viI/AAAAAAAABSc/OQ6fIE2m17Y/s1600/weeping_angel_tall.jpg

    I am soooo ready for Spring! Although we haven’t had the severe winter like most of the country has, but the Seattle area winter has been cold…
