Trinity Church Statue

I think one of the coolest things about photographing Churches are the statues that tend to be strewn about their properties. This is Trinity Church in lower Manhattan… back corner of the church in a little alcove, this statue sits, embedded in the imposing brick wall. Vertical and horizontal lines converge around it, emphasizing the incredible detail of his head, hands, and body, notto mention the flourish at the base of the statue. Can’t help but think of all the changes this guy has seen around him, the city building, and rebuilding and changing at ever increasing rates of speed… and yet this statue sits, quietly through the days, weeks, and years, overlooking the tombs of Robert Fulton, Alexander Hamilton and others in the Church’s small graveyard.

Leaves me wondering what he might say if he could speak… Enjoy!
