Looking at the Sky on Friday




Photobucket

Often cemetery statuary is vandalized as this sculpture has been. The angel is poised to slay the dragon or snake which represents the Devil. In this case the vandals broke off the bottom of the lance rendering the angel harmless.

Standing below the angel gave me an excellent view of a clear, blue sky that day!

Another beautiful photo Mary!
I don't understand how some can vandalize in a cemetery. They truly must not know right from wrong.

What a beautiful picture and I agree, the world is definitely missing respect in many places.

Satan ain't nothing in the presence of an angel.

Such a nice picture ! It's so bad that there are vandals on the cimetaries, we have that here too !

The shot is beautiful, Mary. I will never understand why someone feels the need to vandalize anything, much less an angel in a cemetery. I don't think I'd want to hang around them too much! *LOL*

That's a gorgeous sky and beautiful angel. Wonderful shot Mary.

I'll never understand vandals-especially in a cemetery. It just doesn't make sense.

I love the vivid blue-it really looks beautiful.

It's a lovely sculpture but it's sad that is has been vandalized like that.

That blue is so brilliant and bright.

How sad ... but what a glorious sky you've captured behind this beautiful angel.
Hugs and blessings,
