Shining Light #3

There is a huge range of architectural styles and level of grandeur amongst the tombs.

However, it is evident that you need a dollar or two to get in……

Many are immaculately maintained but others, like this one, have fallen into disrepair. A beautifully clean one may sit right next to another with broken glass, leaves and rubbish throughout. That made me wonder what had happened to the family.

In this case the main window above the door had been broken and the outer panes of clear glass were covered with dust and mould. Yet inside was still filled with a warm soft glow created by the refraction from the dust and the decaying plaster on the wall.

I decided that this family must have been good people as nature was caring for their tomb.
