Cemetery

Put a full bottle of mixed plant poison on to my bike.. Ruby… and set off for the cemetery where I had noticed one of my family graves had weeds growing. But on arriving, found it was all clean and done. Went on a family visit - so many in the same cemetery. Not sad… just accepting.

A photo in the Old Cemetery changed a bit with processing..

Three good things:
1. Finished the accounts for several companies right up to date - reconciliations have never been so pleasing!
2. Got sunburnt in the sun today - had to go inside.
3. Neck chops in the slow cooker (10 hours) are so good!
This is an amazing photo and oh your processing! I love to go visit my mother’s plot when I visit my childhood home.

@maggiemae Oh I don’t think it is the least bit irreverent. It’s lovely!

@onewing Thanks Babs - made it a bit more interesting than a crumbling old cemetery but I didn't have the skills to do the artistic crumbling bit!

The processing certainly fits the subject! It goes quite well and fits the mood in a way. Good job!

Your processing is so interesting here -- and as you say, not sad. It makes it feel like a visit that you want to remember impressionistically.

@jyokota I like what you say, Junko! Brings a bit more character into the scene than just a sad place!

@maggiemae -- my father died when I was 16, and for the next 40 years my mother visited the cemetery every month and talked to him, and to my grandmother and grandfather (Japanese families have ashes interred together into one family plot). I like the way in which we have places to visit and connect. But what will the next generation do as many of us are opting to have our ashes scattered?

Awesome shot

@jyokota Thats what I don't agree with - it might be a nice thought but not for the family that is left!

Very cool processing!
