Stone Angel Sunday

***please enjoy these FREE Downloads for your personal use only***

as promised here are some stone angels from one of the most beautiful cemeteries we have ever visited…

I know many of you Love stone angels as much as I do…

Mr Magpie and I spent hours on a gloriously sunny day just outside the walls of one of the old fortresses of Old San Juan…

the detail and beauty of the statuary was very powerful and moving…

we snapped photos left and right…

Mr M even brought his one legged tripod … unipod?…

my camera is so forgiving it compensates with triple anti shake

after me enjoying a couple of cups of delicious café con leche with breakfast…

back in the 16th century

cemeteries, slaughterhouses and such were always built outside the fortress/city walls…

lots more angel photos to come on future Sundays…

Happy Happy Birthday to my beloved angel here on earth Mr Magpie…the Light of my life OXOXOXO

  5. and another thing………..these monuments are CLEAN! Not a bit of dirt or moss growing on them, either! Does the cemetery have a staff to come out and clean the marble?
    and another thing…….the ‘lacey’ quality on the angels arms is so pretty.

    Thank you again……
