Symbolically split

Headstone at Marchington Church

Not exactly sure why I like this photo.  I guess the mistiness and light evoke the early hours of the morning; and it is a little symbolic. 

You'll often see 'broken' columns in a churchyard over a grave, as they represent a life too early ended. But this headstone at Marchington Church has fractured and split, so it is not a deliberate shaping like a broken-column - but somehow it has become symbolic anyway.

  1. The diagonal slash of that stone does make for a fascinating image.
