The topic for the August 2009 edition of the Graveyard Rabbits Carnival is: favorite photo.
Choose your favorite cemetery-related photo and bring it to the carnival. Post the photo to your blog, along with a short description of the photo, where it was taken, and why it’s your favorite.
These photos were taken just the other day during a tour of St. Joseph’s Cemetery, in Bloomington. Rain was on it’s way so I just began to snap photos without really paying much attention to what I was photographing. It wasn’t until I went back to the photos that I noticed something I hadn’t noticed when I took these two photos.
Upon first glance, you see the a small statue of a child, one the backside of the headstone. But if you look closer, you can see that the child is cradling a bird. What I think is neat about this photo, is that there is dried-out grass around the bird, which looks like a nest. So it looks like the child is holding a nest with a bird in it.
The headstone and statue belong to Robert Joseph Durst Dauber, who was born 11 October 1970 and died 7 May 1973.
