It’s perhaps the most common half-and-half conundrum: one of these glasses of cranberry juice is half full, the other is half empty. But which is which?
This could be a first for me: not only two posts in one day, but two collections of photographs taken during the same shoot. I was excited to see that Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week has the theme of Sculptures, Statues, Carvings. On a beautiful Sydney winter day (flawless blue sky, 15 degrees C) I headed off to Waverley Cemetery, which I know has a great collection of wonderfully weathered stone subjects. While sitting on a bench I realised I was staring at a vault door, and I remembered that the Weekly Photo Challenge is doors. (Click here to see the vault door post.)
Anyway, back to the Sculptures, Statues and Carvings …
The next photo was taken on a previous visit, but fits in well with this theme. I love the way the wings and the drapery seem to become one at the bottom. It’s the statue I described looking for in the post “In search of an angel“.
These doors are from a few of the many family vaults in Waverley Cemetery, in Sydney’s Eastern Suburbs. I was intrigued by the variety of styles, materials and adornments.
Monochrome Madness* this week is about things beginning with K. I went for kiwifruit. The slices were quite beautiful and rather alien-looking when photographed with a strong light behind them.
By the time I was finished photographing, the poor kiwifruit was looking a bit the worse for wear. But it was juicy and smelled very inviting, so I couldn’t bring myself to throw it out. This is not the first time I’ve had to, uh, dispose of consumable photo props:
*I see that the photo (the first one above) that I sent for inclusion in Monochrome Madness was not included in the MM post.
