Dave Brosha’s Angels Everywhere

When I first saw this picture on Dave Brosha’s Blog, it presented a head full of contradictions and contrasts, while the composition and lighting blew me away. First off, the wings? Well, the blog post was called Angels Everywhere.

The feathers on the wings are soft and seem more so against the rock background. The earth tones of the rock contrast the white of the wings and the black of the guy’s tee. The drill and the tool belt seem out of place at first, but more natural as I kept looking at it.

Enough of just photography. If Playboy Magazine taught me anything, it was, don’t just say that you read the articles…

An amazing story emerged about how a community can pull together when a need emerges. Jaret, the handy kind of guy above volunteered his handyman services and raised $1300 for Cherie Metcalfe. Cherie is a mother of 3 who was diagnosed with Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer in 2009, 3 days after the birth of her son. By the spring of 2010 her Canadian options had run out and she needed treatment in California, the cost of this was initially estimated at $100,000!

Jaret wasn’t the only one to help, the community pitched in for Cherie. Eli asked for money to donate instead of presents for his 11th birthday. Many others have worked countless hours to do what they could. Dave Brosha started a project to photograph all of the angels that are helping in Cherie’s fight.

You can help by joining the Facebook site “I Support Cherie” Friend Group.
