Angel in a business suit!



They do say one way to spot a vampire :) is if they have no reflection in a mirror.. I wonder, does it work the same way for angels. When in the city on Monday I caught the reflection of a business man, but in the reflection he is minus his wings! I inverted the colours to protect his identity, angels must remain anonymous to carry out their good work. I actually do believe there are people in this world who through their compassion and good-will can rightly be called angels and this man may well be one of those people but the explanation for his angel wings is a little more simple. The work of US artist Colette Miller, you can read about her 'angel wings' concept here.. must get Aimee to do a bit of posing for me :)  Happy Wednesday, take care..p.s. just a little ironic, or perhaps planned, that the wings are within sight of the Basilica :)

  4. Dear Grace I tried to translate my words in English language by my translator and it worked. I'm angry with Blogger.... I don't understand because some people can't translate my comments.
    Here it's the translation of my post:
    I took these photos during the return flight from Lofoten aboard the twin-engine turboprop of Wideroe.
    Your shots are gorgeous. Wish you a nice Wednesday. Kisses from Italy.

  23. Love it -- especially with the men in business suits. The concept wouldn't be the same with women in dresses, would it? Clever, indeed! Well done.

  24. I love those!

    Angels can take human form. They can also appear as animals.

  25. Did you put him there? Good show!

  29. No, it's true, I have wings. If you don't believe check out that fine photo blog about Perth, is what he is saying.

  30. Ohhh!!!
    Nice treatment at the first.
    Nice idea!!!

    ReplyDelete
  31. I love the interactive aspect of Colette Miller's concept.
    The shot you caught is a wonderful one. Do you think the man ever realised he was standing in front of the wings or was it purely coincidental? He looks completely engrossed in his phone call.
