Photo Challenge – Weather Vane Wednesday/Angelic Skies

I found two beautiful angelic weather vanes in a nearby town for this week’s weather vane challenge. They are atop roofs in Wenonah, New Jersey. One was a very well-dressed angel blowing a trumpet. The other a naked cherub who looked a little cold to me in February’s stiff breeze.

A nearby church also had a weather vane on its steeple.

It was knocked askew and didn’t look particularly stable to me.

Perhaps neighborhood vultures roosted on the vane, loosening the apparatus that held it in place. There were once so many vultures in Wenonah during the wintertime the town held festivals with vultures as the theme. I read today the festival is no more due to the vultures leaving…perhaps they are making a comeback this year.

Thanks to these bloggers for taking part in this week’s Weather Vane Wednesday challenge.

The Photo Challenge: Each Wednesday, I post a photograph of a Weather Vane with a short description of where it can be found and any history connected to it. The main focus of the challenge is the photo of the Weather Vane and the location. The challenge can be Wordless if that is what you choose. If you would like others to see your post leave a link to your blog in the comment box. You can also tag the post #weathervaneweds. If you place a link to my post in your post you will create a pingback that will appear in the comment section. The challenge is open all week for comments and posts. Thanks so much for taking part in my challenge.

  3. Love the background history and the environmental touch you provided( vultures leaving and coming back). The two angels on the windvanes are vastly different- one is an adult and one is a baby. But they both define what they do best, blowing their trumpets and announcing the direction of the wind and in this case, maybe a call for help( for better drapes).
