How poignant! Order and disorder, permanence and dissolution, light and shade, and all this at Rookwood Necropolis. Walter you have made a photographic elegy.

Thanks Maris,

Quiet times alone with kit on a tripodd just searching aroundd for "what we'll be given today", as Minor White said so often. For me always seeking the wee small motif in mundane silence is just as meditative and contemplative as sitting cross legged on the floor saying Aum.
Besides, it doesn't call on the effort of getting back up on my feet.

In this city of the dead, it certainly looks as though "Diamonds Are Forever".

Pretty ingenious picture there Walter, along with the collective noun for your title.

Mick.

Smacks of Cecil Rhodes and de Beers with the collective noun reference, Mick.
