  2. Great capture of this ancient statue; I especially like your skilful use of light.
    The ravages of time have obviously left their marks here. The ‘eternal contemplation’ could crumble into dust eventually.

  8. The stone moss or whatever is that living material gives life to the statue! It is like a sophisticated dress.

    My address changed, Doug, as I moved in a new house:

  11. You've caught a delightful ambience Doug. I just hope she doesn't figure out how to remove the lichen - it adds such wonderful texture.

    Hope you had a nice weekend...
