I like exploring old graveyards and looking at the headstones. The swiftness of the passage of time is most striking in those moments. I see how long ago the people died, and I wonder about the lives that are too briefly summed up in few words engraved on stone.

In recognition of Halloween and El Dia de los Muertos, I’d like to share some photos with you:
