Silent Prayer

By mistere
A detail from one of two works by Durham sculptor, Fenwick Lawson, from the Sculpture Garden of Durham Museum and Heritage Centre.
This is from a work called 'Cuthbert of Farne'. It was created in 1984 from a piece of elm tree from the grounds of Durham Cathedral.
There is also a bronze casting of the sculpture on show at the Abbey on Lindisfarne.
Lawson is probably better known for his work, 'The Journey'. A bronze casting of which can be seen outside the 'Gala Theatre', also in Durham.
With grateful thanks to Bill and Moira, for their time, their excellent company and for sharing their local knowledge with a couple of tourists from the Midlands.

Startlingly powerful, David, with the tightly-clasped fingers highlighted by your mono treatment that also emphasises the lines of the hands. Excellent.

VERY nicely photographed and processed, Dave you've given those hands a story of their own along with the perfect title.

I have to hand it to you, it's very suitable processing for the subject matter, Dave.

Did you manage to get your eyes tested at the weekend?

So sad to hear that your shutter has been giving you trouble, but at your age, it is not entirely unexpected. I can assure you that after the initial shock and frustration, you do get to learn to live with it.Wink Anne will also get over it after a while...

On the good news front, Bill & Moira are progressing well thanks to the therapy, and will soon have only good memories of the weekendTongue

And to wind up this comment, it only remains for me to thank you for the accolade today on my latest effort.
