Angel Wings 3

How 'bout them wings?

This was an interesting statue. Beautiful from a distance, but the closer I got, the less I liked it. It has no detail up close. It's like someone sort of erased bits of it. But it was still pretty cool.

Had a great time in Athens, which is where, more or less, this photo was taken.

(C. Wright - tell G that I got my book back!)

I wonder if angels have a thing about their wings like men have about their ....erm, um....Cars! Yeah, that's it, Cars.

Great picture Rach. Though I don't trust what she's handing out there.

Janie - I wish! haha!

LJ - thanks!

PG - I'm with ya on the hands. Even on close inspection, I couldn't tell if she was supposed to be holding something or not. I hate the hands. In fact, I had trouble tweaking this photo because I couldn't figure out what to do with the hands. Considered cropping them out altogether, but that made it unbalance. Hate. the. hands. heh.

did ya notice the part in the lower left corner that looks like a skeleton's x-ray? the angel of death here is kinda creepin' me out...

SpookyRach said...

ooooooooh. Yeah, I had noticed it, Hot Cup. But it didn't occur to me that it was a skeleton. Extra Creepy!

Bunny - thanks!

Mindy - cool!

I saw the skeleton right away. And those are big cow ropin' hands. What is up with those hands?

SpookyRach said...

Thanks, dijea!

Cynthia - the hand hate continues...

Hey...greetings from the flatlands. I am going through blogger and visiting everyone who listed bacon as an "interest". Gotta love folks who think fatty strips of pork are akin to a hobby.

This is a wonderful image. And I love your sense of humor!
