Stones and greenery

Last fall I took an impromptu trip to the Harstine Island cemetery while visiting my grandparents. All the pictures I took were filled with moss and evergreens.DSC_0120DSC_0061  This breathtaking tree was covered in twisting roots.DSC_0068DSC_0073DSC_0076  Common ancestors.DSC_0078DSC_0082  I’ve been thinking a lot about green lately. If you’re a Washingtonian like I am, you’ve most likely read books or heard stories about your friend’s friend moving to Washington from Arizona, Texas, New Mexico, etc. and freaking out about how green everything is here, And over the last couple of weeks I have noticed that it is extremely green here. There’s such an abundance of moss and pine and plain old bushes. I love it.  DSC_0083DSC_0084  This amazing grave was an old bedframe. DSC_0087DSC_0088DSC_0100DSC_0099DSC_0105DSC_0110DSC_0119

  1. I really dig the metal bed frame for a headstone. That’s a pretty cool idea.

    A cemetery is a photographic good study indeed. The more older and quainter, the better.
    I scrolled through the photographs several times to get a sense of what they could mean to me. Our life cycle which ends in death, decay, dampness and moss. And, the eternal cycle of continuing growth in the verdant ever green. The grave stones and other artifacts seem to me as fleeting memorials from us to those whom we will inevitably follow.
    Nice thought provoking work.

    Sorry. The first sentence should read” A cemetery is a good photographic study indeed”.
