Hands of an Angel

Hands of an Angel
While wandering around the fairly unremarkable cemetery of St Giles the Abbott in Farnborough, I made this remarkable discovery - a beautiful wailing angel draped upon a tomb. I love the poignant pose of her strong hands.

For some reason this photo evokes for me the lyrics of an old Smiths song, I Know It's Over:

It's so easy to laugh
It's so easy to hate
It takes guts to be gentle and kind
Over, over...

What does it evoke for you?
