Figures in the Cemetery

You might ask, why do you go back to the same place every year? I always find something different on every trip! I had never wandered over behind the other building and when I did this time, I found some wonderful figurines in that portion of the cemetery. Also, every visit, the light will be a little different, conditions change....I wish I lived close enough to get it in every season! Too bad I did not know about this spot and Jekyll when I lived in Jacksonville!
Anyway, here are some great figurines I found. The one above had this below it..."It is still morning and the sun is shining"....definitely true on this lovely morning! He has a bird on his shoulder and one at his foot.

The little angel above has so much expression to it! Unfortunately, the one below has a little too much light on it's face. I tried switching over to b&w to bring out more detail, but it did not help too much.
I found out this morning that the Booth Western Art Museum in Cartersville, GA has an exhibit of Ansel Adams photos. He did wonderful b&w photography. I have to make it over there to see that. As they say, you can see the West without leaving the South! Gotta love it!
I do love the chubby feet and toes on this angel...makes me miss a certain little angel named Jackson!

These statues are beautiful!! I would love a rubber stamp of the little cherub with the chubby feet. He has so many possibilities. I enjoy going again to a place I may already have visited. You just never know what you'll see the second time around.
