Memento Mori

Rememberance of mortality, or, "remember YOU will die". Muriel Spark explores this ambiguity in her eponymous book (Momento Mori) which I recommend thoroughly (it was she who wrote "The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie").

This photograph is taken in one of my local cemetaries, Yesterday's post took me to a cemetary, that took me here, and that in turn completes the circle from a few posts ago.. I don't want to dwell in the morbid for long and it is not in the spirit of the London Daily to wax long and lyrical on one day's post. But, there is more to show and more to be said, so My Other Stuff will get all the postings. Click, if you'd like to find out. I hope you like this photo in any case.

Well, cemetaries are some of my favorite settings too... so, you're not alone...

I controlled myself and managed not to post a cemetary photo so far, but now, seeing yours I'm becoming anxious... ;-)

Anyway, good photo. I like it!

I love your picture. I appreciate too the old cemetary (see my blog today...). I like the romantism and the poetic atmosphere of some of them.
Excuse me for my very bad english...
