When I find myself in times of trouble, mother Mary comes to me, 
speaking words of wisdom, let it be.

Why, Algis strikes again, great pics. R
Less we never forget those that perished this year.
je me souviens
rated with hugs
Again, a gorgeous set of photos, Algis. Some unique, fascinating headstones and statues. No. 13 looks as if she is slowly flying out from the greenery.
I love when you post, you always take me away to another world and it is always beautiful.
Inspiring pictures, both visually and emotionally! I live in Germany, where the cemeteries are filled with similar scenes.
R
You sure have an "EYE"! Thank you!
Great post.
As for the 'music' I have Don't Cry by Guns n Roses ready for mine.
Unfortunately due to the recession out of the three forms of burial ceremony we have , namely, grave, cremation and dumping in the Thames River (black bag essential) - the latter is becoming the norm.

"Press send please FRed(tm) you can be cremated Boy."
This was great Algis. The words and pics went together like ham and eggs~~
Thank you for this, Algis, nicely done.
Beautiful post~r
Powerful visual accompaniment to McCartney's profound lyrics. Thanks, Algis.
Linda Seccaspina, Thanks L . It must be my time soon too because all my roads lead to the same place..


VariousArtists, Great I was wondering who would like that and it was you.

Lunchlady 2, Oh that is so nice..Thanks LL2


Out on a limb, Hey please do post some of them for us...Thanks

zanelle, Eye like that....Thanks Z.


Creekend_UK, Oh that me post another song. G&R are a bit too unorthodox for this but thanks for sharing it. I will go listen and see how it is too.


scanner, Thanks for that now I am hungry because I have not had that combination for years....I bet you have great ham down there.

Kathy Riordan, Great K. All my best wishes and more.

Joan H., Again Thanks a million...


Matt Paust, Is that all McCartney? Thanks again.
What a wonderful way to start the day. Thank you, again, Algis.
The first picture got me...the way the angel touches the marker. You spread the good word, Algis. Beautiful pictures, as usual... only with you 'usual' is so wonderfully unusual~
those images are truly stunning
Gorgeousness. Goodness, this is the most beautiful thing I've seen in a while. Do you sell prints? # 13, 17, 20, and 25 are sublime.
Gorgeous (as usual) and with the perfect lyrics.
Wow, you really know hiw to use that camera! Makes me want to visit Montreal again -never saw that place, and I love cemeteries.
Now the faces in these stones are really visible! Lovely Algis.
Wonderfully moving, we are continually reminded of the shortness of life. I went to a wake today for someone who should not have died so soon, he was a great legislator. He will be sorry missed for his leadership. I am once again reminded of the fragile nature of this existence. Thank you for sharing this today, it spoke to me as nothing else could.
Mastery! That’s the first word that came to my mind.
Not a post. A prayer.

You walk in compassion, Algis. You see with your heart.

Click.

Scylla the rock, Ok I have one now too maybe we can put them together and Cry us a River.


Susie Lindau, Thats is so very nice... may your walk last as long as the spirit lives.
This is so awsome!
Algis finds poetry in visual images that I can't duplicate in verse with images that arouse feelings that cannot be encompassed by thought. A poet tries to explicate emotion; Algis finds it wherever he looks in the physical world. It's a kind of disembodied love affair we're having, each trying to capture the elusive essence of pregnant moments between the inhalations and exhalations we express when unexpressable inspirations of experience trigger emotions that rise up to take our breath away, and then give it back again.

Too beautiful for words. Thank you for honoring the dead with your photographs.

What an ingenious coupling, Algis. "Let It Be" always moves me to tears and is so appropriate to the cemetery photos.
blufeather, Thanks so very much now!


sagemerlin, Your words are like manna to my ears. I can never even start to express my gratitude...

Erica K, Thanks for that, it really was nice of you to say .

Sarah Cavanaugh, Oh my sentiment exactly.Thanks S.
I've been to that cemetery and you have captured it perfectly.
Amen, and thank you.
emma peel 2, Oh Thanks !


AtHomePilgrim, Your Amen is perfect.Thanks!
I've always thought of angels in stone as a strange marriage, and in itself a mystery. You show this well in your dramatic photos!
You have a good Insta'mattic Polaroid.
You help get that angel out of a rock.
You are no bad banker in high heels.

Maybe no comment? Kerry L.? heels?
Kerry may be in swim wear in sneakers?
Wherever I go I visit and photograph cemeteries, but have never managed photos as intimate and touching as these. A beautiful photo essay!
I really like the pictures along with the words to the Beatles song. "Let it Be," is one of my favorite songs.
What a singular style you have. Bold and striking, even slightly "off kilter", but still with a strong sense of humanity.
These photos are amazing. -R-
Art James, Now that is one fun and lively poem. Thanks!

joanpgage, Why Thanks so much!


TheSparklingNumen, Thanks , Let it be is a theme song of sorts for us now in our middle years.

Jeanette DeMain, Great...Thanks so much.

Christine Geery, As are you too...Thanks!
Beautiful! One of my favorite songs of all time. The pics spoke volumes!
I have always loved looking at grave markers and monuments and taking photos of them, though not as beautiful as these. Thank you for visiting my blog posting today and I'm so glad I found these meaningful photos on yours. I'm going to share a link to this with my friends on Facebook.
