“EVERY MAN HAS HIS SECRET SORROWS
WHICH THE WORLD KNOWS NOT
AND OFTEN TIMES WE CALL A MAN COLD
WHEN HE IS ONLY SAD"

― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I took this photo on Veterans Day. I saw this man wandering around the graves looking for a name – he found it. And he sat there for a long time – I wonder what was in his heart and mind and the story of a lost person in his life.

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 13 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.

  • it is so sad Lynn – and seeing that man bending over the grave – just broke my heart. He was walking all over this place looking for that grave.
