    Beautiful, soulful and poignant photos. I’m reminded of this from one of Leonard Cohen’s songs:

    “A riddle in the book of love
    Obscure and obsolete
    And witnessed here in time and blood
    A thousand kisses deep”
    ~ Leonard Cohen, A Thousand Kisses Deep

    I love the light and shade and colouring too. Thanks for sharing.
    Blessings to you, Josie

      Thank you so much! It’s so great because just the other day a friend and I were talking about Cohen and his wonderful lyrics. This song was one of my favorite performances by him in Atlanta last fall. I would’ve never thought of pairing the song with the photographs, but it’s so perfect (and I feel honored). Thank you. Again.

        Oooh, goosebumps – synchronicity! I knew there must be a reason why I felt strongly about including those lyrics in my comment. I’ve not yet had the privilege of attending one of his gigs, but I’ve got his Live in London DVD 🙂

    Sorry, hit enter by mistake there.
    I wanted to add that I love seeing how people in different countries celebrate and remember those who have passed.

      Thanks! Technically Memorial Day is for remembering fallen veterans in this country, but yesterday when I was photographing in Oakland Cemetery, a historic cemetery here in Atlanta, I thought it was also somehow fitting, at least for me (maybe it’s the Derrida I’ve been reading ;). Hope all is well with you. I’ve been MIA for a while, but I’m slowly coming back…

    I know little about photography but these are stunning. I love the starkness of them and the shadows. Oh, and I love Leonard Cohen too!
