silent crowds

Thousands upon thousands visited the Holy Cross Chapel at the Woodland Cemetery on that bitterly cold All Saints' Day. Here's a close-up of the Resurrection Statue.

Beautiful, atmospheric shot!

Silent? Hee. Nothing like our cemeteries during All Saints/Souls Days then — veritable picnic grounds! ;D

If you haven't voted for the January theme yet, please do so! The poll is in the January Theme Day Poll forum topic.

Perfect setting for the sculpture and perfect photo angle to see the sky above it! It really seems the top figure will fly in seconds.

If nothing else, I suppose the frosty weather would prevent most picnic plans, Hilda! ;)

(And yes, the vote has been cast although the result seems pretty clear with or without it this time. But thanks for the reminder.)

JM: Thanks. I was aiming for that sky as usual and tried to catch this one before it got too dark.

Thanks for commenting. We'll return to All Saints' Day once more next week.
