Ellipsis Monday Photo Shoot #99: Cemeteries

"I will always remember an epitaph which is in the cemetery at Tombstone, Arizona. It says: "Here lies Jack Williams. He done his damndest." I think that is the greatest epitaph a man can have."

-Harry Truman

CEMETERIES... Creepy? Or Peaceful? John Scalzi posed this question back when he was the host of the Monday Photo Shoot, and I thought this might be a good time to revisit the subject! By the way, CEMETERIES doesn't have to be limited to what traditionally comes to mind when we think of this subject, an auto wrecking yard might also be considered a CEMETERY. Use your imagination with this one.

Extra Credit: I would like to see both a color and black & white photo interpretation of the subject. Let's explore the emotion we get from the two different views.

This Monday Photo Shoot assignment closes next Sunday evening at 9:00 PM ET. Please submit your entries by that time by uploading your photo to your blog, journal or website, and then comeback here with the link that goes back to your entry. The link you leave must be to an entry which is specific to this week's assignment. A general link to your site will not work, and HYPERLINKS ARE NOT ACCEPTED. Also, please include a link in your entry to this photos shoot assignment so that other folks can find us and participate with us. The more the merrier... right? ;)

EMPS: Summer Treats

"In Summer, the song sings itself."

-William Carlos Williams

What says "Summertime" better then cotton candy? YUM. Especially PINK cotton candy! I never buy cotton candy anymore, but it is still making me happy. It's so photogenic... don't you think?

Hope you are all having a HAPPY SUMMER! :)
