Its surreal almost Grant. Like a close up of a miniature. I mean this is simply stunning !

@Matt Sutton: i just made a similar comment about your picture 'angus 2.' thanks.
The columns are rather grand, I wouldn't have guessed what it was without reading your tags. The shadows and tones make it feel like an old photograph of a preserved ruin.

is that in a cemetery? Weird. I love the Dof, do you know who or what W C Glass was?

@RHYS: yea, it's in a cemetery, but i have no idea who this guy was. the cemetery looks like it was for the rich and powerful. the surrounding neighborhood has definitely seen better days though.
Somehow never expected to see this kind of 'architecture' in Kansas. Wonderful image!

Strange architecture. Well done!

Obviously one of the "haves." Nice frame and depth.

mr glass obviously made enough in live to provide handsomely in death...
a nice composition,

Makes me wonder what his home was like? well done g.

There are a couple of these in the old city cemetery here. I also wonder what their houses must have looked like. Great shot of this one.

Solid and massive yet glass written on it – a bit incongruous! Wonderful framing but a very strange feeling – as if it were not quite real no matter how solid looking. Something diabolical about it, but because of that it is a terrific image.

Those barred doors in this massive rock setting make a fine subject for a picture. Nice textures in the wood and stone work. Well done....again!

An excellent but seemingly incongruous image. The name "Glass" just doesn't go with all the stone.

I agree with "Robert" this must have been a wealthy family. Perhaps
it is he who is the shadow to the right of the column, it looks like a face in silhouette.
Great photo, fine shadows and contrasts.

@Nilla: thanks nilla. i hadn't noticed the face, but you're right - and it's just the sort of face you'd expect.
fantastik monument and architecture

Great texture and tonality coupled with superb light and shadows. A winner again Grant!

@Bill: thanks bill, appreciated, as always
This is impressive, and not just in the way the Glass family wanted us to see it. The strong shadow and the way you've given a view onto the rest of the cemetery makes it more solemn somehow. Is the Glass Family house still standing? It might make for the beginning of a nice little series: houses for the living and the dead.

@GJC: that's a very interesting idea. i have no idea. it's not a well know family currently, as far as i know.
A very well thought of man and/or very well off too. Well done Grant, very good photo.

there is so much to see here but i'm glad for the relief work at the tops of the columns and over them
22 Feb 2009 1:26am
Must have been extremely wealthy.
22 Feb 2009 5:47am
j'adore ces lieux...
22 Feb 2009 10:14pm
Great shot! Like the DOF.

Transformational. This one looks like something beyond a contemporary photo of a mausoleum.
