madonna and child


sorry for the grainy photo. there is just something about this silhouette against this not so nice looking suburban backdrop that just really gets me. I love how the madonna's hand is reaching out.

this post is a part of my world tuesday. to share a part of yours or just see more of others, please go here, thanks to klaus for hosting with his team of helpers, sandy, wren, fishing guy and sylvia.

I can see why it "gets to" you. The image has an old world feel but is set against a modern background.

Beautiful evening picture! I like the silhouette with the background of the mountains: it seems to be a windy day!

Bibi said...

I agree with Martha Z. It is an eye-catcher....Mary looks like she might be wanting to unscrew that lightbulb! :)

Re: your comment about the temperature on my blog, it's 4 degrees Celsius...still chilly!!

Great photo - the Madonna and Electrical Wires.

How can a community that's been there for eons not bury it's wires? Don't people care that this looks awful?
No wonder thousands lose power at the slightest storm.

Yes, a very interesting juxtaposition. An image that's just begging for a story…

hmmm...reaching out and seemingly speaking out as well.

nice shot .. maybe try playing with the ISO .. after 3 pm its hard to get a good shot w/o a flash as filler ...

Very powerful I like the way she is looking over the black clouds to the sun lit blue sky in the distance, and her little hand.

Beautiful and somewhat eerie photo. When I first saw it roll up my screen, I was a bit spooked. It really made me want to see the entire shot.

Strange juxtaposition... neat.

Wonderful shot. It does have a poignancy about it.
