ABC WEDNESDAY--"D" is for "deceased"

A cell phone photo I took in a cemetery in Gornje Grbice, near Kragujevac, where I attended the funeral of a very good friend's mother. It always saddens me to see neglected graves.

See other D's on Mrs. Nesbitt's ABC WEDNESDAY.

I agree that neglected graves are sad but they do make for more interesting photos.
Sorry for your friends loss.

mes condoléances pour ton amie. Les tombes a l'abandon ont aussi leur charme, dans le cimetiere russe de st genevieve les vieilles tombes a l'abandon sont recouvertes par arbres, la nature reprenant c'est droit

I noted just this summer some untended graves of my ancestors. Getting the shears...

Call me morbid or weird but I have always found graveyard fascinating for photography.

I have photos of two children's graves who died a hundred years ago, and also photos of the same gravesites as they were ten years ago, - so sad to see them neglected, with all the family gone who used to tend them.

Yes, a sad picture.

Le temps et la nature recouvrent bien des choses.

It's a gorgeous shot. I hate to see neglected graves too (even if they do make for interesting photos); I'll just let my kids scatter my ashes somewhere fitting.
