In honor of the resurrection of spring and Jesus, here’s my favorite photo from Friday’s Granary shoot. A cross between a mortality symbol [the skull] and the hope for eternal life [the angelic wings], the death’s head appears in many forms on early Puritan tombs. The features of the skull have been stylized and turned into geometrical forms, but the figure is still recognizable.
I’m very pleased with the result of this photo; it’s currently on my computer desktop, the fourth in this year’s tradition of grave desktop images. [Previous ones included Corpus and, most recently, Chow’s tombstone.] When I have my gallery showing, this will be one of the selections. [Yeah, I didn’t know I was having a showing either until recently!!] Happy Easter.
