pinwheel

It is difficult to imagine a task that’s harder than putting a pink pinwheel on a child’s grave.

no one every really leaves

The road wasn’t paved all the way to this remote, windswept place.  That was, of course, part of the charm. And part of the adventure of the day.

shadows reveal what was there all along

From my angle, those horseshoes blended in with the bare cemetery dirt, leaving the late-afternoon sun to reveal to me what was in fact there all along.

Little Joe is creepy

Everything about this is creepy – from the death of 16 month old child, to the man-looking face to the oddly shaped feet to the giant-size hands to the fact that the man/child seems to be resting his head on a book. So naturally, I made a photograph.

Sky Wire

The last row of family plots, at the top of a hill, had fences around them. I don’t know if they were trying to keep people/spirits in or out. But I do know that I made this photo from inside one of those grave-cages, so maybe they aren’t as effective as they were meant to be?
