The Weight of the World

By chase
I have been considering something like this for some time, thought today would be fairly apt.

Not much else to say really, the image speaks for itself.

Taken in daylight camera left.
A 3 frame HDR, combined in Lightroom, finished in Photoshop with a texture behind.

Thanks for dropping by.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Stay safe.

Feeling very glum about it all. Supposed to be going to Syke in a fortnight. Will it collapse again?

Glum is an understatement Fiona, fed up and very isolated Sad

Topical and appropriate. looks like the mask is smoking - pity we can't burn them all
Things are a bit more relaxed here in Portugal, the government has a better hold on things and tightened up a bit when schools reopened (with plenty of notice). Fortunately we live in a pretty much covid free area., but everyone still follows the "rules".

It reminds me of the idea of judgment, weighing a soul against a feather...

But then I believe in mercy and forgiveness, most days.

Ditto all the above and then some, Janet....there's nothing left to say. An extremely poignant image and sadly very true of the times we are now living in.
