Till death do we part by grygon Till death do we part by grygon
The dead can love too.

I went outside and spent some time digging a heart-shaped hole in the ground. The earth here in the shade was moist, so you could barely see the heart shape in photos. So I went back to my little gardening shovel and sprinkled some dry sand around the hole so it would pop out more.

Then I got two recent acquisitions: two dog skulls. From my understanding these dogs came from the same household, so it made sense to photograph them together.

people say good photographs look like paintings, while good paintings look like "photographs"

i guess it's because..photographs alreaedy can capture detail so it seeks emotion.
Art capture emotion but it seeks to capture realisticly, like a photograph.

this is beautiful.

That's a really interesting and different idea, and nicely shot too. :meow: Dead animals actually scare me, but for some reason a skeleton of one doesn't bother me at all. I find their skeletons really interesting. XD So I love this. <3

I gotta ask though, where on earth did you acquire two dog skulls? :lol: And know that they're from the same house, too...

I bought them from a guy who was told by a vet that some guy asked him to put his two dogs down. The vet told the guy where he put the dogs, and the guy went out and found them and cleaned them. I bought them.
