Theme Day (Best Photo of 2009)
City Daily Photo Blogs hosts a second Theme Day this month for our best photos of 2009.
"Bearing a Blossom," which I chose for this blog's second anniversary last March 23, was easily my favorite again!
I took this picture in Old Live Oak Cemetery, and the red camellia caught my eye. The flower could not have been placed in her hand for long since it hadn't wilted at all. Whoever handed her the camellia, along with strands of Spanish Moss, made my day. I took a LOT of photos before finding this angle where the tree branches and Spanish Moss overhead provide an enchanting, wispy frame.
The tombstone beneath the statue's feet memorializes a young wife who died at age 27 in 1886.
