0709: Revisiting

IMG_0621_01_LR_12

Last week I brought you a series of images from the Thompson Street Cemetery in Catskill. Today I’d like to bring you more from that shoot. These images, though, are quite different from the others. I was particularly taken with the backs of many of the headstones and the wear they have suffered over the past 150 years. In a way, they remind me of the images I brought back from Maine last year – the coastal rocks and the patterns found there.

The colors are not what you would expect to find in a cemetery – they actually seem to be full of life.

This image, heavy on color and texture, should serve as a reasonable segue into some new fossil images. Over the years, several of these fossils accidentally fell from their places of honor on my deck railing and into a thicket of ferns that surround the deck. Who knows how long they were lost in that thicket (It was very thick indeed!). Having rediscovered them, I am happy to bring them to you today.

I also found time to revisit the beaver pond to check on the waterlilies. Luckily, someone else had the same thought in mind (although I think fish were the object of this guy’s pursuit!).

Thanks for the visit.
