I took the following pictures when I went to Mass at Holy Family parish on the west side of town. There happened to be some amazing weather and light at time, so I struck gold with a few shots.
Ignore my toes, since I'm going to crop them out when I print this.
This is a better memorial photo. I tried to get several shots with cars/parts of cars in them, and this was my favorite. Really tells the poignant story.
See what I mean by striking gold? I don't even know what to call the amazing light show in this photo. As far as editting, I plan to remove the telephone pole wires, and crop out a portion of the right and the bottom. But, dang, just look at that. I was blessed to have been on church property when this happened, so that Christ could get the credit for this miracle.
Here's a photograph of the same statue, this time from an imposing point of view. The sun is still behind the clouds, so the light on the statue is soft. I had to contort my body a little bit to get this shot--I was aiming for framing his head with the clouds. The diagonal angle is sort of an accident, but it works. But wait till you see the next one...
Same idea, but what an effect! The sun peeked out from behind the clouds and lit up the whole church yeard. The Christ in this picture looks a great deal kinder and more merciful than in the other photo, and the clouds frame his head much more precisely. This Christ looks much more alive, yet less frightening than the previous one.
Our Lady of the Boring Overcast Sky.
