Midway through a day long road trip to visit some cemeterys in Iowa we stopped by the Garner Township in Iowa not far from the Missouri river.

There were an exceptional number of doll like figures such as this one bravely standing in the face of or with their backs to the impending storm.

As the raindrops began to fall I finished up some quick shots and hastened back to the dry confines of the automobile to head out to the next stop along the way.

I imagine this fragile looking plastic doll with tattered garments had been exposed to the elements for some time.

Despite a broken right wing, the angel clutches the bouquet of flowers and gazes off into the horizon waiting for the return of the departed one, waiting patiently through any weather hopeful for the moment of reunification.
