I love photos; not photos of cousin Joe’s wedding, though those are nice. I love photos that tell an instant and a lifetime in one click of the button, or flash of the light.
I love wandering cemeteries. There is a name given to people like me, taphophiles. Years ago, I didn’t know there was a name for this addiction, until I stumbled upon it on the computer one day. Lo and behold, I found fellow taphophiles and treasure troves of stories in the photos taken at both famous and abandoned cemeteries around the globe.
I look for little snippets of the heart……touching mementos left at a gravestone, or weeds left to wind with abandon, each tell their own story.
For me, finding that moment that I know will transcend into my camera and into your heart is like finding a diamond in the rough.
Each resident is a diamond, some polished with manicured landscapes and some in the rough, with overgrown weeds and dandelion blossoms adorning their grave.
To me, they are all precious jewels of time, shining in the sunlight or waiting in the rain, for a taphophile’s heart and camera……………
