“To lie in the soft brown earth, with the grasses waving above one's head, and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow. To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.” - Oscar Wilde

Graveyard Rabbits Carnival: Favourite Cemetery Photograph
The Association of Graveyard Rabbits has resurrected the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival, and with a big thank you to them I humbly submit this photograph taken in the Prospect Cemetery at Glasnevin Dublin as my favourite. I have had the privilege of photographing many beautiful stones in many Irish cemeteries, but this photograph really speaks to me. It makes me think about all of the people interred in this space so long ago, and their family members who are no longer around to brush away the dregs of time and straighten the stones. It also makes me think about our responsibility to remember those who have gone before us, to remember them and to take care of the places in which their mortal remains now lie.
