I made a little trip to Iowa City today to take some pictures of the Black Angel at Oakland Cemetery. You can read her story here: http://www.prairieghosts.com/oakland.html A lot of my pictures from Iowa City were poorly exposed - I am trying to work in manual mode - so I headed out to a cemetery here in Cedar Rapids to try again and had much better luck. Then, I decided that I needed to head to Morgan Creek Park. You have all seen this shot - I have taken it several times, but the sun was just right. LOL.

The Black Angel
You can really see the damage to her from vandalism in the second photo. I could tell that she was visited far more than any other spot in the cemetery. There were tons of footprints - you can see them in the first photo - I had only walked around her once at this point.
