Trees and A Shrine

Both of these photographs today are scenes I have photographed many times.  The first, some large trees at one of the local cemeteries, is near a small monument for a  “Baby Girl,”` — only that description and her last name.  I understand she died at birth, and was buried without being named, unbaptized.  These trees have grown in the ten or fifteen years since I first noticed them.  My first vision of them, it seemed they were  a shelter for this baby girl and others buried in the same area, a safe haven.

This next photo is of a shrine in another cemetery  a few miles away.  I’ve tried and tried to get a “decent” capture of this Madonna and Child, and usually was not satisfied.  This time was different, and I’m quite pleased to share this version with you.
