I captured these two young lovers at Mount Auburn Cemetery in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Besides being a tender moment, this picture is ironic in that these two epitomize the exuberance and joy of life amid the gravestones representing the end of life.

Oh, that second one is darling!
Very cool photo!
Thanks, Leah. It’s easy to capture pictures like that of my youngest son and his wife because they are always kissing.

What a touching scene with the background pond. May the sweetness of the moment they share stay with them forever. Blessings to you…
Thanks, Carol Ann. That sweet couple belong to us. They are my youngest son and our sweet daughter-in-law.
I came across a many pictures of people “together” in this week’s photo challenge, but this one stood out. Good emotion on this one, well done.
Thanks, Guat. I, too, love the tenderness expressed in the way he holds her face.

Oh, to be that young again, HG.
This is such a sweet picture of a tender moment.
Thanks, Patti. Those two are so much in love.
Beautiful shot that captured such a sweet moment,Susan! I read somewhere that cemeteries are romantic places to just talk and enjoy each other’s company. 🙂
I did not know that, Yen, but we go to that cemetery quite often when we’re in Boston because it is historic and so beautiful. It was the first cemetery in the United States that was actually planned to be park-like so people could find peace when they walked through it. Before that time, no one thought of making cemeteries a place of beauty here.
Ain’t love great? Makes you feel like you are floating on the clouds. A tender , wonderful moment…
Thanks, Island Traveler. I’d have to agree with your assessment!
It seems like he is consoling her with love. This is really a great shot.
Thanks, LWTTD. I love capturing moments like that that aren’t posed.
A beautiful shot!
Thanks, Bella. Such a tender moment.
Thanks, Carol. Ah, young love!
Wonder why they were in the cemetary? To remember a loved one? Or a good place for an illicit meet? Great shot.
Ha-ha, HG. Um…maybe they were there with his parents (that would be us) because it is a lovely place to walk. That isma picture of my son and daughter-in-law. They are so in love! Every time we turn around, they are kissing.
I can see that love in the tenderness in his face and hand–even in the way he leans in.
Yes, NQO, it is touchingly tender.
Well, that makes sense too. I just thought it was a shot of a couple of strangers that you captured.
I actually introduced it so you wouldn’t know the we’re related to me. More intrigue!
Thank you for sharing your source for this prompts, I’ve finally got there today! 🙂
Yea, Eye! Now I’m looking forward to seeing your pictures.
