For a while now I’ve been photographing angels in cemeteries for a series I’m working on. Last weekend I was at Drawyer’s Cemetery in Odessa Delaware and found two sad stories and one celebration of life. I can’t imagine being George Janvier or Charles Matthews. I know childbirth was dangerous and infant/child mortality was rampant at the time, but….
Ray apparently liked to enjoy life. I think it’s good to celebrate life rather than focus on the losses we all face and experience.
