Catalpa tree standing watch over a watchful angel.
The angel is one of just a few carved statues in this cemetery. This one is atop the Burg family monument near the front (west) side, slightly north of the entrance gates. To tell the truth I just wanted an interesting foreground for the magnificent catalpa that was in full bloom. The statue was convenient. I wasn't trying to have the tree in sharp focus...just present as an overall impression of loveliness. For a different, portrait format, view of the scene, http://smu.gs/1244uTr

I'm hoping to use this gallery to challenge myself to learn something every day about seeing the world, photographing it, expressing myself through photos, and enjoying the works of other photographers. It will test my self-discipline. I won't even pretend that I'll take a picture every single day, but I will try to process one each day. Critiques are welcomed, and even encouraged. If you make a suggestion for altering one of my posts, to this or any other gallery, and I can act on it (short of retaking the shot), I'll try to respond and post the altered versions in a new 'Take Your Pick' gallery here: http://arctangent.smugmug.com/Photography/Take-Your-Pick/27975689_qs5bJs
