Cemetery ramble

It’s not that I love spending so much time in cemeteries… it’s just that they are so photogenic. Thi sis another from the old part of Auckland’s Waikumete Cemetery in West Auckland. Perfect place to bring a blanket and a picnic lunch.

Funny this wooden cross in the ramshackle old part of the cemetery. You wouldn’t think it could go the distance. But I’m pretty sure it’s good for another 87 years. Might very well outlast the marble and granite markers surrounding it.

Eternally disgruntled

I spotted this Celtic Cross from across the cemetery
so beautiful  catching the last rays of sun
before it slipped behind the hills and let the night creep in
And yet – in every image
it seems a scowling, sneering scold
pity it’s sullen companion
who has neither means of respite nor escape.
