tiger lily in cemetery

“I found this place while wandering around the historic revolutionary area of Philadelphia, PA. It was behind an old church in an overgrown cemetery. It was early June, and it was the first tiger lily, a symbol of the summer, which always returns out of winter—like life resurrected from death. This photo is symbolic of the ineffable.”

I find that cemeteries are rich for photo taking – with so many images, so many signs of God everywhere. No – not always in headstones and statues, but in all the other things that mingle with them. God in all things…

I had a friend who used to love to practice photography in cemeteries. She, too, felt they were full of rich images.
