Sunday afternoon

Filed under: Cemeteries — Tags: — lessie @ 6:23 pm

My car was stopped by pedistrians one Sunday afternoon not long ago. They poured out of the Baptist church sanctuary into the parking lot, across the road in front of me, and up onto the slight hill where Sullivan and King Mortuary had prepared a grave side funeral setting. The waning light hit the faces of tombstones and lit up the family names of the deceased. The image seemed to spring from my memory, having attended countless funerals over the years. Though a sad occasion, the number of people — pouring from the church to the grave — gave me pause. Who had died? Someone obviously beloved.



  1. Yes, the lighting is very nice in this shot.
