The Cross


Sticking with the cemetery picture theme of the week. I'm not sure why I like this one as much as I do but I really do like it. I am thinking it is because of the dense fog and the tree branches framing the top of the picture plus I am really interested in the old headstones.
When I was in fifth grade we did grave rubbings, I did my grandparents headstone. I'm not even sure if my Grandma's date of death was cut into it yet. I wonder what ever happened to the rubbing. Any idea Mom? You saved everything else we ever did! You all should see my Mom's filing cabinet. It is like a look back in time. Want to know how I did on a third grade spelling test? Look in the cabinet. She even kept every single award I ever got. Ya know, the paper ones with stars and stuff on them and the smelly sticker in the corner. I wonder if they still smell.
Anyway, I am getting way off track here.
Today should be the last day over at the hell house, errr I mean my Dad's house. We are hanging the last cupboard and the microwave. Yay us!!

I like this one too, because, although the cross is the forefront of the picture, it is taken in a way that makes me look beyond and into the fog in the background. Past death.

I adore walking through an old cemetery. The mistless fog sometimes present it an added +.

I bet mom saved them. ~Mary

The trick of perspective with the low hanging branch at the closest enhances the eerie quality by making it appear like a furtive insight. I like Debbi's comment about looking beyond the fog past death. Awesome pic!
