ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " P "


Welcome to ABC Wednesday. Today's letter is " P ".
The letter " P " is for Pleading.
This figure was in a family plot at an old cemetery in the California foothills.
I liked the imploring and pleading look on her face and the hands clasped in prayer.
To see it enlarged just click on the photo.
Go to Mrs. Nesbitts link on my sidebar to see others posting the letter " P ".

Excellent photo Sue. 'P' also for your new President! Congratulations! - Dave

Possibly pleading with the pigeons to perch elsewhere!

Seriously, that's a beautiful image, and a beautiful subject. I love the old statuary and monuments in graveyards. People used to have much more imagination than we seem to have these days.

DD said...

Wow what an amazing sculpture!

It's like a bad witch has cast a spell on a little child and made him a small statue!!! Rich imagination, don't you think?

Liz said...

I love cemeteries! Some of the old gravestones in particular have a wonderfuuly haunting character to them. Lovely photo.

DeeJay said...

Pleading... and possibly Praying... praying for the outcome of the election!
we stayed up till 1am watching the US election results last night (with the rest of the world), and I'm pretty happy about the way things turned out. The future has suddenly got a little brighter. It was very interesting being here in Florida on election day, specially as Florida was one of the pivotal states.
Congratulations America!
