A dreaded sunny day, So I meet you at the cemetery gates



What better way to spend a sunny afternoon than taking photos in a graveyard.... in this case a rather historic one, Rock Creek Cemetery in Washington DC which has some beautiful angel sculptures and this amazing bronze by celebrated sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens built as a memorial to Henry and Marian Adams. Saint-Gaudens called it "The Mystery of the Hereafter and The Peace of God that Passeth Understanding" but it has become better known as just "Grief".

A few pix below, more on my flickr -
