I was walking through Ross Bay Cemetery and noticed that there was an image here. I saw the flowers and the weathered grave stone, however I got sidetracked by the text on said gravestone. I took a series of photos like this one:

but it doesn’t really work. Once I started playing with it I (again) noticed the flowers at the bottom and the interesting weathered shape. I think the image is visually stronger cropped down to the image at the top of this post.

The moral of the story is to pay attention to what you are seeing. Conceptually there is something about the “Died” text and the following date, but visually it gets a bit too confusing IMHO.

Now I just need to retouch out the dribble of bird poop…
