Lurking In Graveyards

Yesterday I wrote about Fallen Angel Oracle Cards, and bemoaned the fact that I couldn’t find my old Angels images from 2011. I’ve searched through all my computers and hard-drives, but can only find 3 out of a possible 150 :'(. I think of the 150 I must have processed/edited around 30, using mainly the App Snapseed. Snapseed on iOS. Snapseed on Android.

My Angels had come from the old Guildford Cemetery, near Perth Airport. It’s not easy for me to get there from where I live now. Google Search informed me that my next closest old cemetery was the Fremantle Cemetery. So off I went. I told my son that I was going to be lurking in graveyards, and that if I wasn’t home by the time he got home from school, don’t worry, I’m still at the cemetery. He didn’t bat an eyelid. He knows his crazy old Mum well.

It was raining on and off all day, so some of the photos here are reflective of the grey dullness of the day. Yes, they look like they’re in black and white, but they’re really shot in colour. These are just a few of the Angels I photographed, which I will edit and process as part of another project. Yes, I know…so many projects going on at the same time! 😄

If you’re ever in Fremantle, Western Australia, and have a couple of hours to spare, I would recommend a visit to the Fremantle Cemetery. It’s old, it’s vast, it’s picturesque, and the residents would love you to visit and perhaps bring them flowers. (I always find myself righting overturned flower vases or fallen statues, or pulling weeds whenever I visit any cemetery). Despite the fact that it’s not terribly quiet, being surrounded on all four sides by road traffic, it is still a lovely place for contemplation and prayer.
