Lilith

“I have never listened to anyone who criticized my taste in space travel, sideshows or gorillas. When this occurs, I pack up my dinosaurs and leave the room.”
― Ray Bradbury,
Zen in the Art of Writing

I have held back on adding new photos to my series “A Grave Image” these last few months, recognizing my fascination with grave decorations and ornaments isn’t shared by many. However, I’m pleased with my latest capture and so decided to resurrect the series to share this photo. Someone painted her forearms long ago—too dark for her face. I find this incongruence adds to her intrigue and the individuality she retains in this resting place of angels.

  1. Earl, I share your fascination with grave decorations and cemeteries. There is so much history and beauty there. We ordain our loved ones with beauty. Thanks for sharing.

    1. They are our modern day “sacred sights”, Maggie. Regardless of one’s beliefs or position in life, we can find commonality in our ability to grieve. Grave decorations and monuments have always struck me more as expressions of grief rather than ornaments. Thanks for your comment, and I appreciate your shared enthusiasm for this subject! ❤
