Lonesome cherub


How many hundreds of little cherubs are to be found in the cimeteries of Paris?

He really DOES look lonesome.

he almost looks as though he has been weeping x

Andy said...

Even without wings children are still angles. Nice closeup.

Rob said...

Perhaps mournful. Love the attention in details Paris has to offer for our photography pleasure!

Virginia said...

Such a sweet little face. Well done Genie,
WHEN are you coming home?

What a cute little thing. I love carvings of angels.

Alexa said...

Poor little thing does look quite forlorn. Nicely captured, Genie! Paris's cemeteries are a real treasure trove for anyone with a camera, aren't they?

Starman said...

Looks bored to me.

Julie said...

This one seems to have left his post a few times to frolic in the mud puddles ...

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

Bibi -- Very sad, I think.

Sooz -- It does look like there have been tears. I am wondering where you are in your journey...

Andy -- Angels most of the time anyway!

Rob -- I agree, and it is difficult to take it all in!

Virginia -- Home at last!

Loree -- There are more than can be counted in Père Lachaise!

Alexa -- I think that years ago I should have started by marking off my path(s) in PL so I could finally explore it all!

Starman -- I am sure that you are not bored in Paris...

Julie -- It does resemble mud, and I am glad that this little cherub is intact with not signs of damage other than the coloration.

The stains on his face look like a trail of tears through a dirty little urchin face. Great detail and perfect in B&W.
Glad to be home but will miss seeing you :-) Bises ma cherie amie.

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

M -- glad you are home also!

JM said...

Beautiful!

Genie -- Paris and Beyond said...

JM -- Obrigada!

A (seriously) lovely capture. Such a thoughtful cherub.
