Many thanks to everyone who views my work. Comment if you wish, but I’m afraid I am unable to respond or reciprocate at this moment in time.

From Wiki:

The Weeping Angels (also known as the Lonely Assassins) are an ancient race of aliens from the Doctor Who television series. Steven Moffat, their creator, attributes their appeal to childhood games such as Grandmother’s Footsteps and the notion that every statue out there is secretly a Weeping Angel

Their usual mode of feeding is to send their victims back in time, feeding on the resulting energy difference. When they are not being observed by another sentient being, they can move very quickly and silently, but when they are being observed they become “quantum-locked”, occupying a single position in space. In this state, they are frozen and indestructible. They cannot suppress this reaction. If two Weeping Angels were to look at each other at the same time, they would be trapped in stone form until an outside force moves them apart. To prevent this, they often cover their eyes when freezing – this makes them look like they are weeping. They were not shown moving until the Eleventh Doctor episode, “Flesh and Stone”, where they slowly turn towards Amy Pond when they realise she cannot open her eyes. Weeping Angels cannot be destroyed.

As a child my plane crashed in the Himalayas & I was raised by an advanced civilisation that taught me photography, ESP & precognition, no, wait that was the Champions wasn’t it?

Ah well, 50+ & getting more muddled by the day.

Hope you enjoy my work, and feel free to buy anything you like enough. :-)
