Wintry Sunday Morning

January 27, 2010

henry county, indiana

i have always found gravestones interesting.  what i really like about this photo are the shadows and various shades of gray. i like the composition too. i took this on a recent cold and blustery sunday morning trip to miller cemetery where my parents are buried. i wanted to see if dad’s information had been engraved yet. it had.

i sure do miss my parents.

as we head across the sea,
and at last we will be free”

    This is beautiful in its starkness. I, too, love gravestones and find them to be quite elegant.

    Also love the quote. I miss my dad every single day, and it’s been almost over 8 years.
