Orpheus and little girl

Uploaded: May 29, 2003


Indoors, with very slow shutter speed. Camera braced on edge of 2nd-floor balcony at Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Marble statue is Thomas Crawford's ''Orpheus and Cerebus'' (1843). Self-critique: Okay for an experiment. Not 100% perfect. I was trying to depict how the world might appear to a statue frozen in time. Loved the look of wonder on the little girl's face, also momentarily frozen in time.

Unavailable EXIF: If there is no other information but 'Unavailable' in the EXIF (meaning no EXIF data exists with the photo), the 'Unavailable' blurb is not displayed.
