There’s a new blog post by me on the Pittsburgh Symphony blogs, “Lacrimosa dies illa.” It’s about the wondrous performance of Mozart’s Requiem I heard Friday at the PSO.
I like to post photos with my blog posts, as you know, and I typically find lovely images at Flickr. For this PSO post I started out looking for a photo with the tag “requiem,” and eventually came upon a nice image of a memorial to Mozart.
But then I had the inspiration to search for “+weeping +angel,” and this produced many interesting images. I loved the photo I eventually chose most, although I was drawn to “Angel of Grief” with its sweeping wings. This is apparently a common pose for crying angels.
Fans of the latest incarnation of Doctor Who will appreciate many of these photos as well. Here’s the one you’re probably most interested in.
Even as I type a comment, I am afraid to look away from the weeping angel. Please excuse any spelling errors.
Maybe it’s a psychological ploy and he is trying to scare you away from your grief? I don’t know anything about Dr. Who, however.
