This week’s Weekly Photo Challenge is an interesting one, and I can think of a number of images that I could use. I nearly posted a reflection in a raindrop, but I decided to think again. So I thought I would post one of some exquisite carving, with unusual details that perhaps you might not expect to find….I guess this post is actually not really about the quality of the image, but more about looking beyond the obvious.
This is the carving on the exterior of the Watts Cemetery Chapel, in Compton, Surrey, UK. The carving was done by Mary Watts, the wife of the Victorian artist George Watts, and local villagers.
In the image below, homing in on part of the fresco, you notice the fantastic detail…the tiny mouse at the foot of the image. The detailed expressions on the carved faces is marvellous.
