Leaving A Photo Trail In My Busy Wake

Too busy to post many words today.  I will however leave you with some photos I took two days ago.  When I returned home, I noticed a great many of the pictures I snapped were of roads going nowhere, or at least an invisible destination. Hmm, is my subconscious mind trying to tell me something?  

I also took some of a graveyard, but the exploration of eternal resting places is a hobby in my family going back a couple of generations.  Way back when I was knee hight to a headstone,  we had some lovely macabre summer picnics in the local boneyard.  I can still hear my mother’s exclamation, which was loud enough to wake the dead on several continents: “Look!  Ah that poor dear only made it to twenty, must have died of the consumption.  Oh and look at this one, left a widow with six children.”  Who says history is only in a book?  Okay, enough of the crypt keeper talk, here are the photos and I’ll post a real something or other tomorrow, for those who give a hoot.  Be good to yourselves.

  1. I like the last one bit. I kinda feel sorry for you though. “Hey, let’s go eat with dead people and discuss their awful demise. Hmm. Might actually be worth a story though eh?

    Oh, and if you want a chance to advertise your blog shamelessly, Uninvoked has its own forums now and there is an advertising section. ^^ I think it’d be awesome if you came over and posted something about Words. Link is here, if you don’t want to track back: http://uninvoked.proboards.com/

    1. LOL Your sympathy is kindly accepted. Oh, I could regale you with stories from my childhood the would alternately curl your hair or make you grey early. 😉 One thing about it, I’m not afraid of the dead! The living are another matter altogether. Thanks for the tip and I’ll amble over in a bit. 🙂

  2. Val – Great photos! My favorite is number three… strangely soothing.

    Near our house there’s an old cemetery with a section designated as “Baby Land.” Sad, morbid, creepy, awkward, strange. Your camera would produce interesting shots there, I imagine.

    1. Photo three is just outside a place here called Cape Broyle. The sweeping shoreline is on the left of that road and it’s nothing short of mesmerizing on a sunny day. I’ll bet you would write some inspiring verse after seeing it.

      That is sad, Baby Land. It’s a reality no one likes to think about. You know, occasionally, when the mood strikes me I like to take photos in graveyards from a purely paranormal perspective rather than for photographic purposes. A couple of times interesting things have appeared photos that are simply mystifying and unexplainable.

    1. Thanks Jam 🙂 Maybe one day all our roads will lead to wonderful destinations. If not, at least the trip has been interesting.
