L'Archange Michel


The Archangel Michael stands in a little garden outside Saint Michael's church in Porchefontaine which I showed you yesterday. Sorry I didn't comment yesterday. I sort of gave up... Blogger...

L'Archange Michel s'élève dans un petit jardin public devant l'église Saint-Michel que je vous montrais hier. Désolée de n'avoir pas commenté hier, mais j'ai abandonné...

Wonderful close-up. The lighting is especially nice and well captured. Ditto on the Blogger mess.

Magpie said...

Yes, what is up with blogger anyway?
This is such a strong sculpture.

Oh nice! I think every town has a Saint Michael's!

Nice lighting on the close-up, I like the shadows.

It was eerily quiet with blogger down.

If this angel were in my garden would he help me with the weeding?

He always seems to be portrayed with such a sweet face.

Blogger was a mess yesterday. I don't have a blogger blog but it made it difficult to comment.

L'Archange du Mont St Michel a un casque mais le même air un peu niais en terrassant du même geste auguste le dragon comme si c'était une mouche.

I always like St. Michael--not that I knew him personally---but I still like him.

I am home--finally. I love it on the ranch. They branded the last of the calves the day I arrived but I was too late.

Ya, he should come down and kick some ass!

Blogger was a problem. I asked the Archangel Michael for assistance, but he said archangels don't get involved in such minor stuff, and that I'd need to locate a lesser angel.

That's when I gave up!

Le sculpteur n'avait pas l'air très inspiré... comme Google hier...

Very nice sculpture. That is exactly how I've seen archangels pictured.

Blogger was frustrating, since I live in a technology environment I could feel for the support staff and whoever performed the maintenance.

It's such a beautiful sculpture and I like a lot the second!I also love the church in your previous post.
I had some problems with google and my blog account. Today looks normal at least!
I wish you a lovely weekend!

This is a rather sweet version of the archangel.

Looks like this angel is at war. I hope its feathers didn't get too ruffled.

Such a feminine face for a dragon slayer.
