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.
