This is a wonderful sepia scene. The angel looks as if it's crying.

Lorna said...

heartbreaking in its way, but beautiful, and it probably helped the parents in their grief

What a precious grave marker for a precious child!

It's a sweet looking statue. How sad it is, whenever any child dies.

Lovely!

Michelle said...

Perfect subject for a sepia toned shot.

To answer your questions about the ranch we were at. I'm pretty sure that the town was built to look like an old western town. The only ghost towns I know of are out in the dessert.

Great Sepia. The angels do watch over us.

Annie said...

somehow, i think these touching images made the loss of a child easier to endure.

Ralph said...

This angel looks sad, her hopes dashed. Yet she is a fitting tribute to the hopes we hold for the future. But this little angel is for a true angel in life. Nice capture is a warm toned sepia.

Patti said...

The angel may look sad, but she is also sweet.
She is keeping an eye on a little one who died way too young.
Beautiful photo.

Sweet yet sad.
If this is a new shot you have more willpower than me in the cold. ;)

Oh, EG, so lovely and so sad... Marvelous Sepia Scenes work! :)

Leora said...

Ah! This is lovely. So sad that so many children died young in the olden days. We have much lower infant mortality rates now.

Jacob said...

I find the look on the angel's face fascinating...the sadness permeates everything.

Must have been a terrible loss for the family!

Well-done photo!
