This is a photo of the church bell from the church I grew up in as a child. The church was rebuilt just over 20 years ago. Lightning struck the bell tower and burnt the church down. It was originally built in 1858.

You've given new life to this church bell.
Her beautiful curves, the solid cast work, even the crack has its own poetry.

I thought you were kidding with your title. I love the shiny glow of the bell.

That is quite a story. I love how you have portrayed the bell.

Love the metellic feel of this, sepia is perfect for this photo! Love your music, too!

Ralph said...

I wonder if the ring would be sharp or mournful with that crack. The bronze show up so well in sepia. A true classic!
