Petite tombe

Toddler tombs are always a sorry sight...

You're right about that! They do remind me, however, just how fortunate I am to have four living children that have grown up to be pretty special people -- even to people who aren't their mother!

Always...

Almost feel guilty sometimes to have lived so long already, when so many others did not...

Theanne said...

and yet some toddlers are not remembered with a grave stone...so this sweet child is very fortunate!

Randy said...

So true. Nice shot.

Une douce image qui rappelle la fragilite de la vie meme pour les plus jeunes.

I love this cemetery series. Beautiful shots! I'll be posting some small mausoleums tomorrow to be linked to Julie's Taphophile Tragics. :-)

But I'm always drawn to them... to read... to ponder what might have been. A touch of sadness too.

Sad, but one hopes they have moved on to a better place.

EG CameraGirl said...

They make me feel very sad.

C'est toujours triste, et on se demande a chaque fois quelle est l'histoire derrière..

Sorry but lovely...

I've never been able to comprehend a system in which young, innocent human beings are subjected to pain, suffering and death. These are, indeed, a sorry sight!

It is a sorry sight indeed, but there is something very touching and beautiful in your cemetery photos - thank you for sharing them.

I truly believe there is a reason for everything Ciel, I have to or else it would all be too horrible to think of such young children passing so soon. I think they go on to be angels, c'est possible oui?

Halcyon said...

Definitely sad, but the angel is really cute!

Jack said...

Yes, I hate to think about the pain to parents of losing a young child.
