A Really Big Head

Definitely don’t know where this one was, but on one of the other negs. there’s a name of the church in the b.g. which I can’t quite make out yet.

Hell Fire – Belgium

Posted in The Photography

As I was removing dust from this shot for about half an hour, I began to wonder what it must be like to work on this sort of thing for months or years. And whether the sculptor believed in what he was doing or was just working on commission. Which lead me to wonder about […]
