for our second week of class, we were given the theme of life or death. not a very happy theme at first glance but surprisingly, an easy one to find images of. since we were allowed to interpret the theme as we wanted, the choices for shooting were plentiful. the trick was to find images that were interesting and eye catching.
for my photos, i decided to visit a cemetary. luckily for me, the nashville city cemetery was giving the annual living history tour. not only were there lots of interesting scenes to shoot, there were live actors portraying the dead and buried. if you haven't gone on a living history tour, you should. the history of nashville is colorful, to say the least!

my husband was fascinated with the mausoleums
vine on iron fencing
row of crypts
this quote seems to sum it all up nicely

the mausoleum reflecting the gravestones across from it
then of course, i headed to the garden. this is a great time of year to find life and death in the garden.

and in color-completely different results
and our next theme is our choice-we have a list and i have yet to make my choice. stay tuned, i will post the photos.
