Nice "bastards"...however sometimes I spend a few minutes to read sentences on gravestones...First of all because I'm old so very close to finish-line...but in most cases they are nice jokes!!My grandpa wasused to say they are "Books of Lies"...ie...A lovely Father who loved her wife all the life with true LOVE...and so on!!In real life (you can bet) that man had a lot of women and his wife got bored of him after weddding....Sorry but only in a few less cases sentences of stones are "pills of Winsdom"

Can't help wondering why we photographers love capturing gravestones, I know I do. Apart from the obvious reasons, like portraying colour and texture, we all want to seek out the mystery of what lay behind the lives of strangers.
Fascinating image
