  7. I love the abbreviated version of those words, like daughter and another word - body? I've already forgotten. Love the color--or lack there of--which is so appropriate for the topic.

    wv: tizedosi. Tizedosi of words on that headstone, but it's absolutely gorgeous.

  8. Oh! Forgot to mention - tell Toonman the Washington Post is running a contest for cartoonists, and the winner gets to be published in the paper for a month or so i think -plus Gary trudeau and others will critique his work. If you google Washington Post cartoon contest I'm sure something will come up, or just go to the on-line version.

  14. Very mysterious with the edges s worn that some of the numbers are missing. Hard to tell her age when she expired.

  15. I love old cemetaries. The gravestones have such character. This is quite the epitaph. The listing of the famlial relationships is interesting. My history professor once said until about the 1930s children weren't named until they were two because they might die. So I like to look at the children's graves, although it's sad, to prove this theory. It holds pretty good. Also I like to see what was written. Usually something like baby boy Johnson. The anonymity makes it that much sadder when you think about it.

  16. Cool photo, and great find among the gravestones at Trinity Church. I remember going there a few times as a kid (though I can't remember particular gravestones).

    My WW entry is here.

  18. Beautiful shot. That stone looks so old. Someone's daughter, rather than wife or mother, I wonder how old she was and what her story was...

  19. My mom loves her local cemetary. She takes pics all the time. That stone is amazing and wonder how long its been there? Great shot. Happy WW!
