Rose

This image was shot on Schoonselhof Cemetery, Antwerp.

Porcelain rose, trying to withstand eternity on a grave that has been neglected for decades. An early morning, covered, soft light, after a short and refreshing drizzle.

Some drops remain, tears on the man-made petals.

It is a sad thought that in time all of us will be forgotten except for the lunatics and madman. And a handful would-be saints.

    1. My legacy is my two daughters, yet I’ve had only a small part in giving them the precious gift of life.
      The way I will be remembered, and I guess it’s completely different from how I want to be reminded, depends solely on how I have touched the people in who’s memories I will live on.
