Forever Young

Uploaded: September 09, 2009


Shot this last winter. This little boy was a mere 4 yrs. old in 1920. As I thought about him, it occurred to me, that in his family's eyes - he will always remain forever young. Shot on an angle, slight crop.

So touching and yet such a lovely image! It was so moving to wander through a very old cemetery in Beaufort, NC and see all the tiny little graves, and to know that over 100 years later, someone was still caring for those graves. #7930169
