Photo of the Day (4-02-08)

A spring flower and a tombstone–two images of life’s circle. The face of the soldier makes me wonder what he is thinking? I’m reminded of Inman, the Confederate soldier in the novel, Cold Mountain, whose Civil War experience was mostly spent finding his way back home. There are subtle aspects of this shot by mce323 that are quite lovely. Notice the soft moss on the ledge and the patina of the bronze. According to the tags, this fellow is at Cemetery of Père Lachaise in Paris.
