Look up

I’ve decided to give May’s NaBloPoMo a shot.  This angel from the Lake View Cemetery fits the theme of “Look Up” quite nicely.

I didn’t notice until I looked at the first photo at home that the angel has lost a hand (or at least I assume it lost a hand — I suppose it’s possible it was created without one for some reason).  I am reminded of the statue of Jesus in St. Anthony’s Garden (the St. Louis Cathedral garden in New Orleans) that lost a finger and thumb as a result of hurricane Katrina, and wonder if the angel lost its hand in a storm or as a result of wear, tear, time and weather.
