Endurance implies a length of time to me. Not only to endure challenging physical conditions such as weather, but to endure cultural changes and societal changes. To live on long after death is best kind of endurance there is.

Wandering around an old graveyard yesterday and I couldn’t resist another take on the Weekly Photo Challenge.

Old Tombs

Old Crypts

The marble one had a “ghostly” look.

Yikes…this one looks like someone tried to break in or break out!

This week’s challenge is to take a photo of yourself out of focus, with the background the important part of the photo. This is the grave of a child in one of the old cemeteries near where I live. There is no information on this girl; it simply says, “Louisa.”

Jake’s topic this week is Surroundings.

I was think of how our surroundings affect our mood: how some people think surroundings matter even AFTER you are dead and buried. Now, I’m not trying to be morbid…but haven’t you noticed how beautiful most cemeteries are? My grandmother’s cemetery plot is on a hill overlooking what used to be a drive-in movie theater; she used to joke that she was going to spend eternity watching movies! (Unfortunately, the drive-in is no longer functional, though the screen is still there.) But her view is nothing like the one in the photos I have shown here.

Recently some cousins of mine visited from Colorado. My brother and I took them to a cemetery of a seaside town to look at the surroundings. You will see why…it is on a peninsula. One direction provides a view of the bay and the other provides a view of the ocean.

I certainly wouldn’t mind those surroundings for eternity!
