Theme day : Cemetary (month of Halloween)



Here it is. The month of Halloween. As a theme, we decided in the Daily Photo Blog community to open the month of october with a taste of the 31st. I couldn't feel the darkness of it, so I decided to go with a lighted picture, more of hope than desperation. The list that follows are all participating blogs. Visit them !

Comme thème, pour ce premier jour du mois, nous avons décidé dans la communauté des blogs quotidiens de photographie d'ouvrir octobre avec un avant-goût du 31ème jour.

It is hard to decide what to post...you made a good choice.

personally I don't relate the theme to halloween at all.

Jilly said...

It's interesting how much fellow DP bloggers find today's subject morbid. Maybe there's something wrong with me cos I find graveyards beautiful, peaceful places.

Bonjour Luc,

J'ai trouve votre blog sur le blog d'Eric (Paris). C'est interessant, vos photos. Le blog est aussi bon pour les gens qui parlent deux langues et moi, qui apprends francais!

Je suis de Singapour et je pense que le Canada est un beau pays.

Ok, the rest in English now, my limited French can't bring me far! On the topic of cemeteries, those in Singapore have a forbidding air. They are certainly most oppresive after dark. Unlike western cemeteries which are tranquil and peaceful, those here emit an eerie aura and are best avoided in the month of July (when it's said that the gates of hell open and spirits push forth).

Choosing to blur the headstones is very interesting.

bonne idee ce traitement.

Yes, I like how you focused on the rock instead of the tombstones.

An interesting picture.

Lynette said...

Thanks for your photo filled with light.

Susan said...

A nice bright resting place. I dont find graveyards spooky at all. Perhaps that is because I usually only go there in daylight!

slinger said...

More of hope in your photo, perhaps my cemetery photo will put a smile on your face.

Que je te comprends!!! Sans aucun rapport avec le thème: j'aime bien les petits drapeaux. Ce qui prouve peut-être que je te dois une petite visite depuis quelques temps... bad me!

Nice mode photo. I like your play with dark and light portions of the photo.

Which cemetary is this? I heard the strike at Cote de Neiges is over now....grim thought. I don't find cemeteries morbid at all, most of us will end up there. I think its the fact of our own demise that makes people uncomfortable...
