  1. Gorgeous and crisp photo!
    As a side note, if I die … please don’t leave faux flowers on my grave and if I’m not cremated in that place where you’re putting the plastic flowers, I will come back and haunt you.
    Ummm, can I digress a little more? That sweet shadow on the right looks like a young rottweiler head to me.

    Am I your least classiest commenter?!

    Through all those crazy words, I hope you see the love.

    I do so love your photography.

    • I would never place plastic flowers at your grave. Promise. 🙂

  2. One gorgeous photo after the next . . . I am GREEN with envy!

    LOL . . . now I can’t look at it without seeing the baby Rottweiler, since I read Bella’s comment 🙂

  3. there is just something about this photo…. i really like the black and white but the title itself even though plainly stating the obvious, there is something profound about it. Rather sad & chilling. It expresses, enunciates mortality.

    • Interestingly, this particular cemetery doesn’t allow real flowers anymore. Very strange.

  4. They look great in b/w–probably not so good in the real world 🙂

    • Very true. The strange thing is, this cemetery doesn’t allow real flowers because, as the guy in charge says, dead flowers depress the visitors. Huh?

    • Only recently have I really started to enjoy cemeteries. They sometimes have some pretty interesting stuff.
