    • Thanks very much. You’re right there’s a lot of color in the Spring with all the new growth bursting forth but black and white seemed an appropriate choice for the subject here. Have a great week and thanks for the kind comment 🙂

  1. What a fascinating peek into history dear Joey! I wonder whether there’s any de Wets buried in the Gedenk te Sterven?

    The black-and-white format, the drooping branches and the damp on the headstones lends a very sombre mood to the first picture. Just wonderful photography again!

    It’s so nice to see you back!

    • Many thanks for the kind comment Dries. I didn’t find any “de Wets” although I’m sure that your history goes back to the Netherlands. The drooping branches and the rain was perfect for the mood of the first image. I’m glad you like it. Have a great week 🙂

  2. As fascinating as these shots are beautiful! There’s something mysterious about old cemeteries and your pictures in the haunting black and white sure bring that out!
