All of Me

“These wounds won’t seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There’s just too much that time cannot erase”
— Evanescence,
My Immortal

As you can see, I spent some time at the local cemetery again, pondering and perusing the grave decorations. I came upon a few decorations I wanted to photograph for inclusion in my series A Grave Image, and will share those in my next few posts. There is something oddly cathartic for me in the making of these images; something that makes losing James take on a broader context among so many other monuments and tokens commemorating life, friendship and undying love. I find community and understanding in these visual testimonies placed here by fellow members of the fraternity of grief into which I’ve been involuntarily swept up and irrevocably indoctrinated.

I’m pretty happy with the way this turned out. She seemed to take on a life of her own during post-processing and the final image emerged without any forethought of creative intent on my part. I hope you like it.

  1. My Immortal is one of my absolute most favorite modern songs. As haunting and sad as it is, I absolutely love that song.

    1. Not sure what is happening there, Linda. I am able to view it from multiple devices as a guest user without issue. No account or login required. SmugMug does not require you to create an account just to view content. 😦
      Anyone else have an issue clicking on the image to view the larger version if the file?
