Angel branches

012814

If you ask me, the best thing to see in Chicago is the Graceland Cemetery; its website proclaims it to be a Chicago treasure, and I certainly agree with that.

I was glad I visited early in the spring, before the trees had leafed out – otherwise I’d have not seen this angel, or at least not seen her this way.

I’ve posted other shots from this cemetery, including illustrating what acid rain does to statues, an odd combination of flowers and a serpent, and a statue that inspired a poem.

If you go, be sure to stop off at the office, where you can get a map showing the location of the most famous dead people there. You’ll be surprised at how many you’ve heard of.

  1. Nice photo, Melinda. What kind of post-processing did you use? I usually used onOne software’s Perfect Photo suite for this sort of thing…

  2. Beautifully framed. The statue is a bit more mysterious with this focus. Great shot.
