Surprise!

You guessed it...another pair of awesome earrings are going out to one of you lucky readers...all you have to do is comment on this post!  Lita will be picking the winner Monday!  Good Luck:
So Wayne and I went scouting yesterday and came across this old cemetery.  I took several photos and then came home and "googled" one of the headstones: 
Come to find out, this was the grave of a little baby named Ola Emert Galloway...she was the daughter of H.K. & Rebecca Galloway ~ born on 04.16.1891 and died on 09.08.1891.  I love exploring old cemeteries...I'm going to check out another one tomorrow.

I'm off to my camera club meeting!  Good luck winning the earrings!!  Have a great Thursday Night!!
♥ & peace always ~ Kathy

  1. Yay! I made it, I'm first! Come on Lita, pick me, pick me! I love these earrings, they are so soothing, like pepto bismal! HeeHee!
    Kathy-you have become such a awesome photographer! This is such a unique photo, I love it! It's haunting and mysterious! Sad though to know that if it were today the little baby could probably be saved! I havent read the link to her name but plan too! everyday I look forward to seeing what you'll discover!
    I love you and miss you terribly!

  2. We are having incredible, unseasonably warm weather in Virginia Beach. I've walked every day so far this week. Mine haven't held nearly as much as adventure, but I've been enjoying them just the same. Fascinated by the pic & story and of course, I love the earrings.

  4. I just stumbled upon your website and what a delight! Like you, I enjoy combing through old cemeteries, taking photographs, reading the tombstones and wondering about the lives represented. The music absolutely fits the tombstone of the little girl and I can imagine if that girl were a woman she would want to wear the beautiful earrings. Thank you for sharing your art.

  5. Love the earrings!
    You have such great adventures! Love to hear about them. You make the ordinary extraordinary! Love this quote by Amedee Ozenfant, "Art is the demonstration that the ordinary is extraordinary." You definitely do that!
    Love ya!
