This small cemetery in a rural hamlet in Southwestern Michigan, like so many arcane and out of the way places, provided my friend and I a number of architectural subjects for film cameras over a period of many visits. As she lived just a few miles away, it was easy to wait for the "right light" and hop in the jeep.
Tuesday evening and I just finished my supper and listening to All Things Considered on WBEZ public radio (NPR), my nightly routine, in addition to reading any updates on the New York Times. The news is so frequently dismal, I find that I must read it in segments, as not to get overwhelmed with either sadness or anger.
Photography is a wonderful antidote and produces peaceful and mindful moments that are respite from fusing with thoughts that the bellicose news reports produce. Soon I will be able to photograph after work again as the days are getting longer.
