Her name is Diana. In Roman mythology she is the goddess of the hunt and in some circles one of three goddesses associated with the moon. This statue, found at San Francisco’s Sutro Heights, shows her reaching for an arrow with her right hand, while her left hand is wrapped around the antler of a stag.
As luck would have it, I was passing by with camera in hand as the sun positioned itself directly behind her and her stag, offering me a great photo opportunity. As is many times the case, once back home I decided to ‘experiment’ on the photo. I added a bit of texture as well as a hint more saturation on the color.
You can find this work hanging out at my FAA site too should you wish to check it out.
