Black Friday

 

 

About three in the afternoon Jesus cried out in a loud voice, "Eli, Eli, lema sabachthani?"

(which means "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?").  --Matthew 27:46

(from the Castelvecchio museum, Verona, Italy)

Very coo shot of that piece of art work.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Michael, I had a better shot looking at it from the other side to see the anguish on his face but it didn't come out as well. It's one of the best I've seen showing the real agony he must have suffered.

You have really accentuated the mood of this moment, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: That was my intention, Ray, so thank you.
your angle on this light illuminates the excellent workmanship on this work of art, Ginnie. excellent post.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Ayush. I had another angle that showed the anguish better but it didn't come out as well.
An amazing piece of art.
A beautiful, tasteful presentation.
And a very poignant post.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you x 3, Elizabeth. Sometimes it's easy to forget that this really was a BLACK day in history and that he really did suffer abandonment!

A very rare view of Jesus on the cross and also the facial expression is very telling. Like Elizabeth said: a very poignant post.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Astrid. I wish the other angle I took straight on his face came out better because it really showed his anguish better.
An excellent shot, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Frank.

Stark & emotional stuff Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Sometimes it's important to remember how awful this day was, Chris. It makes Easter Sunday that much more meaningful!

A very powerful image, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Lisl. I think we sometimes forget how horrific this day was to those who observed it while it was happening.

wow, Ginnie, that's an amazing sculpture, and you took an amazing shot of it!! perfect shot for Black Friday... tho i still don't know how they fit 3 days and 3 nights into a weekend!
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Elaine. I "get" the 3 days but not the 3 nights. Regardless, it's the foundation of Christendom.
Powerful image, EXCELLENT, Ginnie
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Roland.

Magnifique prise
JP
Ginnie Hart: Merci, JP.
A fine reminder of what Easter is supposed to be about
Ginnie Hart: It's hard for me to forget, Bill, having grown up in a preacher's home all those years!
Very well done, Ginnie.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you kindly, Mary.
That is a quite amazing sculpture, one can almost sense the pain He must have been feeling.
Ginnie Hart: When you look at him square in the face, Brian, it's even more wrenching, but my capture of it wasn't that good.

Very symbolic for today. The start contrast works well.
Ginnie Hart: Thank you, Alan...and lest we forget!
In a moment of hopeless despair, where else to turn.
Ginnie Hart: I try to think back on that day and what those who loved him must have felt....
this one will stay with me, Ginnie...
Ginnie Hart: Lest we forget, Larry! Lest we forget.
How did you get the background so black G?
Did you bring your magic cape to Verona?
Ginnie Hart: If these walls could talk, LC, right??? smile
