Old Respect

Have you ever been to an old cemetery?
Have you read the headstones? The ages and causes of death? Their storys are facinating and an insight into life in your very own community from another time.

We are privileged to have a lovely old one right near the river and park.  The headstones are wonky. The metal is rusty. The trees are in a state of autumn and it felt serene.

I went there to create some rubbings for an upcoming art idea. The light was incredible for about half an hour and I took photos as well.

The center of the concept I am working on is 'Respect'. I couldn't think of a better place to start looking at respect in our town. A place where there are no heroics to be honored, just stories to tell.
