10/18/10 – Featured in the GEMS GONE UNNOTICED Group.
I don’t know if it is just here, in the U.S., or in other places, but I find a poignant message in the headstones that are inscribed with someone’s name, while that person is still alive. This couple spent many years together. He was born in 1918 and passed away in 1999. She was born a year later, and is still waiting to be joined with her longtime companion.
This is one of my favorite shots. I love the contrast between the brilliant sun, shining through the trees, and the solemnity of the graveyard.
