I have shot this piece of the fireman dozens of times and never got a photograph that I would show anyone. I told Debi that it was "today or never." Fortunately it was "today."
|Hill Angel, Shot with the Samsung and Processed in Nik Color Efex Pro|
At a cemetery full of beautifully sculpted angels, the Hill Angel has pretty much ruled all these years. Over the years many well done angels have come along but none have been able to usurp it’s beauty and poignancy. I never shoot at Glenwood without photographing the Hill Angel.
That may be changing, at least some competition is on the horizon. A new angel, smooth, unweatherd with sharply chiseled features has just arrived—not even installed on it’s base yet. Unfortunately I got so engrossed in photographing the piece that I did not even notice the family name. These shots will always be unique because when the installation is complete it will be in a different position. Looking forward to going back then.
