    Fabulous shadows, a wonderful series !

  • Thanks Berns. Some of these shots made us (the group of photographers present) quite sombre- especially this one because of the age of the little girl on the grave stone. It was a chilling reminder of our own mortality, but also a lesson in how fortuneate we are to have a long life.

    Marvelous shadows and light—lends such a wonderful mystery to the image!

  • Mystery is the key thing about this- with all our science, religion, and philosophy, what do we really know about this? The ultimate mystery. Our egos tell us in our youth we are invincible and individuals unlike everyone else, but we soon turn back to dust.
