Incredibly beautiful and powerful grave stone. Imagine the joy of the child who, confined to a chair in this life, crosses over and is lifted from that seat, free to run, play and go anywhere he wants, with no limitations!

The green lady between the trees © All Rights Reserved Taken on: March 28, 2009 Frau zwischen den Bäumen  This figure from the alter Friedhof in Darmstadt always looks like she's just stepping out from between the trees. I've often tried to get this shot, but this time the light was just right - an advantage of being local. And no, I haven't messed up on the colours, these are as close to real as I could get.
