Making memorable images

Endless rows, countless lives


Rows of headstones3228

As I shot these photos in the cemetery, it stung me to remember that each cold hard stone represents a life lived, a life lost. Sadly, it looks like some had been mostly forgotten. I wonder if the people had moved on from The City of the Dead, a place where, according to a novel I read once, you live until there is no longer anyone alive to remember you. Then you “move on.”

Only your imagination can tell you what that means.

    Another good shot from this location.

    • Yes, I think that idea has been used many times, but that’s okay. If you give 10 people the same idea for a story, you will have 10 different interpretations. I enjoyed the book that I read, and I will check out the one you suggested, Robert. 🙂
