Listening for the words in a quiet corner of the night. The fiction, poetry, and photography of Jason Evans.
I really like that picture. Are the tombstones facing the road? How bizarre...
Beautiful words to a beautiful picture.
This one took my breath away.
Anne, yes, the tombstones face the road! There are stairs to the road, but really no place to walk. Have to watch that a car doesn't clip you. Back when the road was traveled by horse only, though, that wouldn't have been a problem.BeadinggalinMS, thank you! The picture really captures the spirit of that area.M.G. Tarquini, :)
jason- I like the effect of light and shadows in this picture. :)
Really great scene you captured, Jason!
Hi!. Tried to email it bounced back to me. Do you have an updated address?Just as well it bounched back. The synopsis I sent was godawful.
The email is still good. Maybe Yahoo was having a problem.
I sent to the wrong address. I sent an experimental to your email to make sure I have the right one. I'll send a reworked synopsis after I rework it. Thanks so much.
Hey Jason,This is a great picture... I really like the way you shot the whole thing, especially the tombstones shadows, the green color at the bottom of the pic and the grayish blue sky on top corner… the whole combination.Beautiful words… Beautiful picture.Cheers :)
I agree - beautiful picture, beautiful words. They tie together really well.
The stone wall appears half finished, and I wonder which lives were also half-lived, both in time and attitude.
Farzad, sometimes pictures from late in the day have striking contrasts. Some snuck into this one!Terri, I think about how close these country cemeteries are to the families buried there. There's a special poignance to seeing the graves on the hill outside your window.Mermaid, that's a great observation. One does wonder about the significance.
What a pretty spot for a final resting place...
I like the picture, though I HATE where it is. LOL!Tanya
Jane, I think I'll reserve my spot now. :)Tanya, what's wrong? Don't you like cows? They're very sweet. Really. ;)
That is such an interesting photo. Kind of like one's final, eternal look out over their domain.
Hi Jason.I read a little ways through your blog the other day, the post beneath this is excellent, capitol E!Now that the holidays are here, I'll be able to have a proper look around over the next days. PS Thank you most kindly for your comments, much appreciated!
Livewire...one's final, eternal look over their domain.... Very nicely put! :)Autumn storm, thanks for the visit and the compliment! I look forward to seeing you back.
This looks eerily like a graveyard I once visited in Snowdonia.
I love old cemeteries. The one near Central City was a favorite before the gambling made the journey up there unenjoyable.And if I've said that at this blog before, I apologize! I can't remember what I've said where sometimes!Peace,The Cheesy 1
UTMG, I like to get a feel for the essence of any given region. Very intriguing when two or more in vastly different parts of the world are similar.Cheesemeister, don't worry. Any comment is a good comment!
Great pix! I love it, even if it is so close to the road and tombstones facing the asphalt!
Robin, I think it's just like how old houses are close to the road. Back when they were built, a few horses going by each day wasn't a big problem.
i love that photo. reminds me of where i used to live in iowa.
Thanks, Anne. Enjoy!
