Two headstones, one a bit more pointed than the other, are each covering a corner of two gothic church windows, one a bit more pointed than the other. A harmonious rhythm of corresponding forms that subconsciously may have caught my eye. But I took the picture in the first place because I liked the grey and dark headstones on the neatly kept lawn behind the little white church. And because of the signs of slow decay on some of the stones.

Death and decay are fascinating phenomena of life. They’re intimately connected and a favourite subject. For the same reason I could not withstand the temptation of taking the picture below.
