Here are a few from a cemetary in Washington I took yesterday while taking a walk and trying to collect my thoughts. I found it quite eerie how her emotions seemed to be mirroring some of my own feelings.

Enjoy.

Very moody shots - I like the tones and texture.

Very interesting capture, the first two provide context to the third image which to my eye is the essence of the grief........emotion, yes with good composition in the tight frame .

I love the last one. Its got great feeling to it, you infused the stone with something extra. It must have been the moon or something. I felt like that yesterday too. You took the high road and created art. I bought a purse. Dangit! ~ L

Wow — No. 2 almost seems real. It made me sad just looking at it. Very nice work.

Lots of emotion here Kara. Well captured.

I too hope you are feeling better. Life can be tough but tomorrow is always a new day. :)


Lauren......"I bought a purse" .....classic and too funny. Really made me laugh. Hope it made Kara smile too!




Peace and Happiness

Very nice. Is this Wash state or DC? They remind me a bit of this image I took in downtown Seattle: [lensbabies.com]

Grief is what? Sadness...longing for what was lost...what will never be. How do the images you captured relate to your life? Whatever the issue...I hope you find some peace in your memories.

so much strength and emotion in your captures.... sometimes we have to feel before we can see.......
Hope today is a much brighter day and thanks for sharing with us. These are very nice photos all three.

Wow thank you all so much for your kind words and well wishes. This weekend was a bit rough for the hubby and I. We travelled to Spokane, WA tp visit his dying grandmother who was a huge part of his life. Coincidentally, she lived up the road from one of the most ornate cemetaries I had ever seen, so while I was feeling a bit overwhelmed I decided to do what I usually do for clarity, I excused myself from the family, took the camera and went in search for something to shoot.

While I was walking through the cemetary I saw her, and it just struck a chord with me, so I spent about 20 minutes trying to find the best way to shoot her, in a way that would also communicate my own feelings I was having. Its the first time I have ever come away from shooting feeling satisfied with what Ive brought back.

Thanks lb friends for all your thoughts, you have no idea how uplifting it is to have checked this and seen all the replies.
