Daily Deviation

Given 2010-10-30
For me, Samhain / Halloween has always been about making new starts as much as celebrating what has passed and who we've lost. Transcend by ~davepalumbo is a wonderful illustration of how death shapes us and that we can break free from the grief and live on.

This is beautiful and poetic in so many ways. The golden backlighting works wonderfully here, and how the stone becomes as thin and brittle as a shell near the facial area is fantastic. The "close-up" works very well here.

Fantastic. I go "collecting" faves at DA every day while my PC's rendering. Not many pictures actually stop me dead in my tracks. This is brilliant.
