I took this photo at Yew Dell Gardens during their annual sculpture show. It was a wonderful Saturday morning, a little warm, but the sun was at a nice angle. In looking at this photo I can’t help but think that sometimes I feel a lot like this statue…I think I often have a face of stone. Most of the people who know me don’t really know me, but that’s my fault–or choice. I find it hard to truly share who I am or what I think. At this point in my life I feel it is difficult to change as I’ve grown comfortable with my face of stone.
Regardless of how I feel or what this picture makes me think, I really like this photo. There is an interesting beauty as the face seems to be erupting from the stone around it. The face itself seems tranquil in a zen sort of way. More interestingly, the face of stone almost appears not only smooth, but soft. Perhaps even stone faces can be soft.
