A beautiful and understated memorial.
The image also has the quality of film and print. Very good.

I may not come around very often, but when I do, it's always for an extended visit! I love the crispness of you photos, and the 'extraordinary found in the ordinary' that you achieve. Thanks for my latest dose of 'Oo's and Ah's' ! :)

Very moving.

Strange, I also had a bird on a tombstone, posted on 9/11.
The bird of the soul.

Your bird is so beautiful.

A beautiful melancolic mono.

I wonder if this was a child's grave?

Dirk said...

Nice shot, don't see often doves on tombstones.

A peacefull sadness with a graceful beauty. Lovely.

Dette fikk meg til å tenke på noen i slekta mi som døde for veldig lenge siden, men som hadde en slik due på grava.

Sterkt Rune!

wonderful photo, Rune.

Dagrun said...

Huff... får litt frysninger. Jeg tenker barnegrav med en gang, vet egentlig ikke hvorfor en gang. Trist og vakkert.

Vita Stunder said...

Otroligt stark bild!!
Vackert Rune.

VALKYRIEN said...

Vakkert og stemningsfullt.

Robin said...

How sad, the way the dove seems to be paying his respects as well.

Rune (Bildebloggen) said...

Vakkert bilde til ettertanke det der. Veldig pen og riktig i s/h!

Liz said...

Oh I like that. That's very unusual.

AKO said...

Det ser ut som om duvan sitter där och sörjer. Fin avvägning i exponeringen

Starnitesky said...

Beautiful and touching. I am sorely tempted to put a finishing touch to the dove's beak that she has lost. Ever the perfectionist.

This must have shown up before but now there is a little square with an x. I don't see anything on your last two posts.

Regina said...

Awesome!

Daryl said...

Sadly sweet, well shot

√ Abraham Lincoln said...

Yes, thanks for visiting my Pick a Peck of Pixels and commenting on my stag beetle post. And for telling me the pictures are up and working again.

I like this dove and tombstone and the previous post as well.

PERBS said...

Good shot but I don't like the picture. . . even tho a dove stands for peace.

Your EG Tour Guide said...

I think this is the first time I have ever seen a dove on tombstone but I think it's a lovely idea.

Cheffie-Mom said...

Tom said...
