Angel [339/366]

One of my favorite places to run is Forest Hills Cemetery. It's peaceful and it's quiet. Early morning when they open you'd see a far amount of runners, but I preferr to run closer to midday when there is no sign of people. 

Such was the case this morning. Except, I wasn't there as a runner, but as an observer - a photographer. 

Admittedly, I ventured out this morning with a half charged battery. I didn't care. I needed peace and quiet. A time to think. 

The few moments my camera allowed me were precious. I did not abuse them.  

I shot little, but what I did shoot was important to me in some way. 

I shot this statue for a reason. The whole world is monochrome. It's New England in winter. But the moss on this statue's arms and her employing gaze upon the heavens spoke to me. 

Her color stood out amongst the gray trees. 

This is New England for real. No photoshop. It's gray and heartless, but for a shine of life when it's needed.
