Day 14 - Indescribable Love

 
My mother gave me this when I gave birth to my daughter and it is one of the most precious gifts I have ever received. The love a mother has for her child can't be put into words but the following quote by this unknown person came pretty close.

'What took me by surprise is the way I feel when her face lights up when I walk into a room because I am her world and she is mine. Being a mother is like taking your heart out of your chest and watching it walk around.' - Unknown

Very nice! That looks like a piece of the Willow Collection. My sister and my daughter own several pieces, but I don't as of yet. Enjoying your photos!

Love how you've used the dark background to make the subject stand out, beautiful quote also.

Awwww. I love the quote. I just had my last little baby (our 3rd) 6 weeks ago, so this really touched me. Thanks :)

You did a great job photographing this pretty piece. Sometimes it's hard to bring life to inanimate objects but your light makes these figures glow.

Simply beautiful. It captures the emotion so well.

Beautiful photo...the lighting on this is wonderful as well. I was going to say they have to be Willow Tree figurines as well. I love those pieces!

I agree with jackscrap - it looks nice against the dark background

Love the depth to your dark background...it's perfect for your statue. Lighting is super too without losing any of the carved details.

Monica said...

Beautiful image! I love the quote you placed with it, too. It is so very true.

I have a couple of these figurines. My mum says they are creepy because they don't have faces, but that is what I love about them. You can put your own expressions on them with your imagination and they then become even more personal and special to your situation. I think I may try to set up a shot of one of mine.

Wonderful job of taking this image. Love the lighting and how it brings out the piece. The quote is, as they say, totally awesome!
