Angels we have seen on high

Each month the City Daily Photo community has a theme day. About 100 different City Daily Photo blogs will post a picture on the theme on the first of the month.

The theme for October 1 is cemetary or tombstone. Since, New Orleans is known for its cemetaries which have a different look that most places,I was out this week scouting for a good shot. Haven't found it yet, but I did run across this statue on the top of a tomb.

Make sure you come back and browse the City Daily pages not tomorrow but the following Monday for an interesting day of daily photos from around the world.

Hi Steve,

Its funny, but I thought of you as a Parrothead already because you are in New Orleans, and Buffett influence is there too! I envy you for your cemeteries. I already took my theme shot from a historical cemetery here, the only one, and the tombstones there are all only, or mostly, white boring blocks. My theme photo is taken and is truly horrible. :)

Oh yes I have heard so much about unique NO cemeteries. I will love to see them here on 1st Oct.

And this is a lovely statue and the white of the statue seems to be at peace with the blue of skies above :)

Hi Steve,
Cool idea you folks have with a theme photo. I love your angels and have heard that New Orleans has tons of unbelievable cemeteries. Can't wait to see your Oct 1 image. :) I really like the lens flare that you got in your shot and the blue sky is amazing. Nice image. Aloha, Renee :) :)

This is a beautiful statue, really angelic! I still have to find mine for next week, but it won't be difficult. I'll just go out to Old Live Oak Cemetery.

I should have looked for cemetery photos this weekend as you did ... I guess I'm a slacker ... also, when I saw your post it reminded me of my weakness of getting the spelling of angel and angle mixed up ... have a good week.

Looks like it's going to be a sombre 1st October

Victoriana perhaps, interesting. BTW, we got an Audi Quatro that had been submerged in a local flood and every part is being double checked, computerisation plus, could take my husband years to do!

Great photo. Fabulous statue.

I love this statue. A pre-Christmas hymn..."Angels we have heard on high...." Love the song too.

A jump start? Why don't you have your own theme after October 1; I think many of us will be interested!
