Photographer's Note

“Tears” is the name of this photograph. It shows the Blessed Virgin Mary crying as her son dies on the cross. I took this photograph in the portrait mode hoping to capture the tear running down her face because it looks so genuine.
This statue was next to the church in this small community of Ferryland where my father was born in 1921. All the communities along this coast, the southern shore, have strong Irish roots and you can tell by their Irish accent.
This is the community warlord Baltimore started a settlement before 1620, as I am not quite sure of the exact date.
There is a great deal of archaeological research here and over 1 million artifacts have been found to date with only twelve percent of the old Colony of Avalon Dig completed.
This photograph was cropped, Level adjusted, Sharpened in lab color U. S. M. 50, 2, 1, and saved for the Web. If I had my time back, I would have used the forced flash to try and eliminate shadows. What do you think?
