driving home from work one day this week i pulled into an old rambly, hilly cemetery. it was very spur of the moment. i generally only take photos on sunny days. this was a drizzly cool day, a perfect day to ramble in a graveyard.
the cemetery was deserted, quiet and quaint. small, old headstones were dwarfed by larger and newer ones. many wore cloaks of blackish green moss and tilted sideways from years of fighting the forces of gravity on a hilltop. the names and dates, once exact and distinct, have faded to almost secret messages.
and, so i walked and wondered and shot to my heart's content. the drizzle didn't stop me. the lack of sun and shadow did not deter. i found beauty there, a solace from the world if only for a moment.
have a wonderful weekend, all!
