Weekly Photo Challenge: Together

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.

About Coming East

I am a writer, wife, mother, and grandmother who thinks you're never too old until you're dead. My inspiration is Grandma Moses who became a successful artist in her late 70's. If I don't do something pretty soon, though, I'll have to find someone older for inspiration.

    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.

  9. Ain’t love great? Makes you feel like you are floating on the clouds. A tender , wonderful moment…

  10. It seems like he is consoling her with love. This is really a great shot.

  12. Huffygirl says:

    Wonder why they were in the cemetary? To remember a loved one? Or a good place for an illicit meet? Great shot.

  13. Thank you for sharing your source for this prompts, I’ve finally got there today! 🙂
