Tombstone Tuesday - The Tree and The Rosary

This dramatic gravestone photograph was from my recent outing to St. James at Sag Bridge cemetery. The stone is an intricately carved tree trunk that is amazingly lifelike. A recent visitor hung a green beaded rosary on one of the branches. When I walked around the stone, the cross was glinting in the bright sun. It was a photo opportunity not to pass up.
