100 Prints Project #58 - Mary's Hands
Those of you who follow the blog or know me well know that I am drawn to cemeteries. I find them peaceful and beautiful, like stone gardens that are lovingly tended. Some days I am most interested in the architecture and the long shadows that the light creates, but some days it is the statues that speak to me the most. On this particular day I couldn't get past these hands of Mary - folded in prayer, gentle yet strong - strong enough to carry many burdens and sorrows - like all women who are mothers themselves.
