From the Riverside Cemetery, Denver, Colorado.
This post IS for Good Friday. But there is also a Story to be told. This was my second visit to the Riverside Cemetery in Denver. Dragging around my Mamiya 645 in its rolling case. The Riverside Cemetery is a place to go for History Addicts, as it is the oldest Denver Cemetery. It needs some love, but is now being managed by The Friends of Historic Riverside Cemetery.
But things aren’t as they seem, when I scanned the film from my second visit I reversed the negative. And on my first visit I had taken the Long View. The original perspective and correct orientation is below. What do You Think?
Notice the lovely Oil Refinery in the background, which is why on my second visit, I moved in closer to “crop in the camera”, and show the face of Mary. I also had better light on the second go around.
My Secret Santa this year went far beyond the Call of Duty; including lovely English Goodies that I remember from my time living there in the early 1990’s. And wrapped in Marks & Spencer paper that survived the international Post. Thanks so much @robert_duncombe (instagram).
But let’s get to it:
And the Goodies Are Revealed!
My Yucca Baccata is very happy! It now blooms every year. Sharing My Flower for Mother’s Day:
We pause today in our posting…to Remember our Veterans. And also one comment.
During this 100th Anniversary of WWI (1914-1918), I do not think there has been enough reflection on the root causes of War.
