In the cemetary on a rainy evening

When I first saw these stones, I decided that the two that are crosing were lovers in life and couldn't bear to be parted in death. After I took the photo I went closer to read them, and saw that the true story is much sadder: The dark stones are children who died young (the one on the left was for 2 little boys who died at age 5 and 3 months, the one on the right was a girl who died at 3 days old). The larger one is their father. Posted by Picasa

sad..my bf's niece (5 y.o.) once saw a tombstone of a young child, it made her realised that young children die too under special circumstances..she couldn't sleep for few days..

it's sad but at first look it really has some feeling of a family there.

I love this one. It doesn't strike me as sad at all, though, perhaps because I spend a lot of time in cemeteries. I set it as my temporary wallpaper. A beautiful shot.

Fantastic shot! The picture alone is great, but to know who these were and their relation... wow.
