London in Winter: The Dead





Do Not Stand At My Grave

Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am in a thousand winds that blow,
I am the softly falling snow.
I am the gentle showers of rain,
I am the fields of ripening grain.
I am in the morning hush,
I am in the graceful rush
Of beautiful birds in circling flight,
I am the starshine of the night.
I am in the flowers that bloom,
I am in a quiet room.
I am in the birds that sing,
I am in each lovely thing.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there. I do not die.
~ Mary Frye

2008
Photos of the Bromptom Cemetery in London, taken on a sunny winter's morning. I decided not to present them as dark, dreary images fitting of the sombre mood where the departed lie, and simply present to you these final resting places as I would like them to be seen.

2009
A visit to London's famous Highgate Cemetery, in miserable weather.
