Sign of the Cross - Part Eight

Larry Torno

Real cross, real clouds; saw it and waited for the right balance of composition.
     I like the sweeping curve of the roof line against the angular direction of the clouds. It so happened that the sky was divided between black and white, with just enough black to form the perfect background for the white cross. 
     Throughout the years 2005-2007, I concentrated heavily on photographing crosses as the inspiration for my art. I continue to find instances of symbolic imagery and will be posting more on the blog in the future. 


  1. makes me catch my breath...and truly believe in a higher being...

  2. The contrast of the small cross against the huge sky is 'quietly powerful'
