You may have noticed that I missed last Wednesday and Friday. There's a story involved, but truthfully, it's not a very good one, and so I won't go into it here. Suffice to say that computer issues were part of the problem, but not its entirety.
My most humble apologies, and I return today with a new Offering.
I love cemeteries...I can stroll for hours through the stones, enjoying the peace and quiet, paying attention to not much in particular.
I went to visit my dad's grave today, and on a whim took my camera. I consider photography as much a part of my art as anything I do with a pencil or brush, and so I make a photo Offering today.
As I strolled around the corner from my dad's grave, I came upon this Graveyard Angel, whom I had never noticed before:
I was entranced, and when I moved forward to get a closer shot, I found, through sheer happenstance of where I was standing, that she was staring back at me...
One step closer...
I won't lie to you: it was a very subtle, creepy moment--the almost total silence, combined with stone eyes--carved long ago--peering at me through my camera lens.
And that's why I submit it here, for your consideration, as a Halloween Offering.
I hope you enjoy it.
