    Clever and beautiful. What a combo Eliza ❀️

    How interesting that WPC would suggest “Change” followed by “Boundaries”, and even more interesting how you chose to respond. Perfect reminder.

      I was looking for a stonewall to photograph and we came upon this cemetery. My spouse made the comment, which I thought was perfect. It is a pretty thin boundary when you think about it. Nice to have you visit!

  3. I think we would all like to hope that a boundary might keep us out of there Eliza! Perfect shot for the challenge.

    Stone walls area rarity in my part of the world, so I appreciate your sharing: What an interesting boundary between life and after life.

      Thanks, Maureen. New England and Ireland seem to be the only places in the world you can see these labor-intensive walls. With our yearly frost heaves, it is amazing that many still stand, a tribute to their creators.

    Great shot and choice for the theme, Eliza.

    Yes, indeed!

    What a vision! The lively colors above, the dark and darkly shaded wall with fallen leaves neatly gathered beneath as if waiting, the well-lit inviting entrance, the rising path–and the seriousness of the scene gently undercut by a few leaning markers, which seem in their weakness very human still as they stand and face the light. You caught something very powerful here. I’m saving this one!

  11. oh this brought tingles to me. Perfect way to capture the boundary, Eliza.

    My you have a great eye! Here and beyond!

    Must be an old graveyard. Long thin stone, slanting. Beautiful colors. Interesting there are darker shadows on this side of the wall, like there is a subtle boundary before the boundary of the afterlife.

    Very symbolic image; food for thought!

  15. We had the same thought, but your wall and cemetery are prettier πŸ™‚

    Omygosh this is perfect! Love it!

  18. This is a lovely shot!

  19. What a beautiful, multi-layered take on boundaries, Eliza. This is a wonderful interpretation of the theme, and a great shot of the stone wall and drape of autumn leaves. Is this near your home?
