This sculpture adorning a grave site at Riverside Cemetery in Waterbury, Connecticut, is one of my favorite subjects to photograph. There is so much heart and life in this figure. She is so young, yet so sad. She writes, "He shall live" on the smooth and shiny granite. I swear she really wants to believe it.

  15. That is beautiful. The way you've photographed the sculpture gives it a 'Rodin' feel--one that touches the heart to the core, and then the words melt it.
