I saw the angel in the marble
and carved until I set him free...

Like hanging and swinging for such a longtime, carved and prisoners of the concrete. Great inspiration in the framing & beautiful rendering of the light over this luminous white/void full of emotions.

Can be difficult to keep one's feet on the ground these days but, yes, soldiers and angels often make a surprisingly good mix.
Looking forward to you getting more AM3 time soon !

Absolutely fascinating extraction--it makes me think, it's got me a bit off balance, it makes me smile (and frown a bit to be honest)--it does everything a good photo should do.

Très poétique, on se demande quel étrange couple cela peut être ...

con cada pan que nos quitan de la boca un disparo en la boca del alma
y nos cuelgan de nuestro cielo por el cuello prestado
y así seguir bailando la infame danza de los vivos bien muertos?
Jamas, jamas descansaremos hasta poner los pies en la tierra
y caminar lejos de vuestros afónicos huesos.

I like this particular point of view. Somehow it seems to summarize the sculpture very well. Nicely done!
I'm sorry that times are difficult right now, and I do hope that changes quickly for you. Best wishes.

great composition, love the contrast and subject. Hopefully things get better for you. Conversely, I am just coming back to AM3. I will (and have) missed your photos, as you bring great vision and creativity to the AM3 community. You have great talent with your ability to play with light. I hope to see more of you and your work very soon.
