Stone Angel Praying by Ed Sweetman

Currently unavailable for purchase

Photographed in a cemetery this stone angel caught my eye because of the age of the stone and the lichen covering her arms and hair. She has stood in that same spot for over a century and it shows. There is a good chance she will be there a hundred years from now. I hope so.

A horizontal version of this image is also in my portfolio

I walk around a lot and photograph whatever I find interesting. Sometimes it happens quickly and at other times I have to wait and look for an angle or composition. I use current technology to get what I want but I don’t use much of it – I like manual control over my images and simplicity is key.
