Day 315: Somber



I will say that I cheated today.  To make a long story short, I went non-stop from 6 am till 8 pm.  I'm too tired to think about a shot today.  This I took last Friday, at my favorite cemetery.  I've been trying to capture her right for a long time as you can see here.  I've always stayed away from photographing her up close.  I never realized how the flaw on her cheek was so pronounced, or how sad and somber she looks.

I see a lot of emotions in her face. Nice shot. B/w conversion works well to convey the feelings.

I actually like the "scar" a lot. Not something that we usually see on a statue... it adds a lot of character to it, and works well with the already somber mood.
