Seeking Angels

It was a Sydney blogger, Lignum Draco, who introduced me to the angels of Waverley Cemetery. And as an avid collector (photographic) of unusual and interesting headstones it was a place added to the list of “things to do in Sydney”. 92 more words

365 Project - Day 336

Fungi.

Found these fungi in our village churchyard, not sure that they would be edible but they appear to be past their best anyway. They look like some awful alien invasion.

365 Project

Neatly filed away memories of past lives.

Mossy autumn velvet cushions stacked headstone memorials and tombed beds. Soft furnishings for retired grave stones to put up their heavy, earthbound feet, a database of past lives filed neatly in an open air, bricked cabinet of a time capsuled office, whose inhabitants moved on long ago, to more easily maintained digital storage solutions.
